    I formatted my ASUS notebook with iAtkos L2 and installed OSX Lion on it and Absinthe worked just fine. The process did take a while, which is ok, and the first 2 times I clicked the "Absinthe" icon, all I got was a white screen, but after I turned VPN on, it worked fine.

    There is so far one bug I've found, not sure if it's been reported elsewhere or discovered by other users. One of the hand gestures on the iPad 2 puts the tablet into safe mode after execution. The one where you use 5 fingers and swipe to the right to bring up the next running app. Springboard restarts into Safe Mode. Where do we report bugs to?

    Otherwise, fantastic job guys, SBSettings and multicleaner work fine. Haven't had much time to try out some other stuff will be hopefully in the morning.

    Are there any bugs with this Jailbreak? I want to do it but dunno if it's safe. I'm particularly interested in keeping iBooks and Siri safe.

    Dude, I did that and now I cannot reboot my Mac
    I got the grey screen with the apple and the loading gear!

    I tried to reboot in safe mode (hold shift when it starts or write the safe mode in command: sudo nvram boot-args="-x") but it did not work!

    Any clue on what I can do?

    STEP 1: Download and extract libcurl.4.dylib 6.0.0.zip http://cmdshft.ipwn.me/other/f... to your Desktop

    STEP 2: Launch Terminal.app (Located in /Applications/Utilities/) and execute the following commands:

    STEP 3: First we'll backup libcurl4 by renaming it

    sudo mv /usr/lib/libcurl.4.dylib /usr/lib/libcurl.4.dylib-backup

    STEP 4: Now you’ll move the newly downloaded libcurl file from your Mac OS X Desktop to /usr/lib

    sudo mv ~/Desktop/libcurl.4.dylib /usr/lib/

    STEP 5: Launch Absinthe and it should work fine!

    Let us know if it works..

    yeah we keep asking because that does not work for all of us, so its not a super solution...

    Just for reference:
    SBSettings CMDA (Verizon/Sprint) 5.0.1 | iPhone News, Apps, BigBoss, Guides & Jailbreaking

    Remove the 3G toggle:
    - SBSettings > Dropdown Window > Set Window Toggles
    - Make sure 3G is turned off
    Go to settings, general, reset, and reset your network settings.
    - I had to retype in my WIFI password... (so this wont kill all your settings)

    I had the same problem and followed those instructions to fix my Verizon 3G "No Signal" problem.

    I also ended up rebooting several times... probably 2-3ish... then even though it still said no signal I did the ole *228 (but im sure you could call any number) and it went from No Service to the normal 5 bars that I should have had initially.

    hope this helps!

    So it works but nothing else does. Touch functions go haywire when I plug headphones in, I have no cellular data anymore, says no sim installed and those are just a few problems

    Still having issues with my 4S. I've had to jailbreak it 4 times and restore it 4 times. I install jailbreak apps and then if I reboot my phone, it will take a long time at the Apple loading screen and then it will freeze with the 'loading circle'. This happens with random applications so I can't tell if it is one particular application. Anyone else having this issue? It's frustrating..

    Just jailbroke my iPad 2. No problems during the process. When I launched Cydia, however, it was taking too long to load packages. I waited 30 minutes. Finally, I cancelled the loading. When I tried to look for my favorite apps, I got a message saying the repository could not be found. I go to the Sources, and all of the sources were blank, except for Cydia/Telesporo. I tried to re-add the Modmyi repository (http://apt.modmyi.com), but I got an error saying the URL is invalid. Any fixes?

    OK I backed up my iPhone4s (CDMA) device and restored as directed.
    Then double clicked on the Greenposi0n icon that Absinthe created on my iMac.
    It just sits there with Beginning and sits there i gave it 3-4 hours.
    What should I be doing now?
    I haven't found any support for those who are unsuccessful with this process.

    Thanks

    Let me know if you figure it out because I've been trying for 2 days now. I get the same thing "application quit unexpectedly". Then it asks if I want to ignore, report or relaunch. Can't even get it to open.
    I've asked on multiple forums and no one can give me an answer
