Awwwww hell. This guide said I could backup to iCloud, and I would be prompted to restore from it after. Well, no prompt to restore. Just an empty iPad 2 with Cydia. I read elsewhere to backup TO COMPUTER because you can't restore from iCloud, and it appears they were right?! Any suggestions on restoring from iCloud like this guide states? If not, please change the guide ASAP to save others!

I am having a problem after jailbreaking my 4S. Anyone getting white icons after installing applications? Some of my apps just changes to white icons. Doesn't happen 100% of the time but enough to annoy the crap out of me.

I feel like I am a pretty experienced iPhone user, including jailbreaking etc.
My 4S 9A405 5.0.1 was jailbroken perfectly until this morning where it kept crashing everytime I tried to put the phone display to sleep aka just hitting the power button once.
I decided to restore and rejailbreak after not being able to find out what was causing this issue. I restored and now my iPhone is 9A406.
I restored from backup, and attempting to rejailbreak.
Absinthe now sits at beginning jailbreak, this may take awhile...
Does not proceed, unless after 30 min it will say that Absinthe has quit. I retry and same thing, stuck at beginnning jailbreak
Any help on how to jailbreak this phone again? I do not want to lose any of my contacts or anythin like that

I purchased a 64GB factory unlocked iPhone 4GS. Is it possible that Apple has introduced something into this iPhone that prevents me from jail breaking? When I attach my iPhone and double click the Absinthe icon, the jail breaking button stays gray and will not recognize the iPhone and will not allow me to proceed.

i downloaded absinthe,as soon as i click its icon on my iphone 4S a black screen comes showing "absinthe is applying settings ,please standby"

Whats the Current Firmware version?. If it doesn't show a Jailbreak make sure your Running the Right firmware otherwise it won't work.It is Not by our Hands that things Change, BUT rather our Interventions that change ourselves.

Been crazy busy with work so I just got around to jailbreaking my 4S today. Also after reading through this thread I wanted to make sure I had plenty of time in case I ran into any problems, like many here have! Now I wish I wouldn't have waited!!! I backed up to both iCloud & my computer. I did NOT erase all content & settings. The jailbreak took less then 5 minutes & was successful the very first time! Plus, I never got the database/VPN error. The only minor thing causing it not to be a100% perfect installation, was that my compass icon was white after completion. 1 respring fixed that issue.
Being without a iPhone that was jailbroken for so long, I had forgotten what I was missing!! Now let's see how long it's gonna take to get reacquainted with & remember how to get around the "guts" of this thing with iFile. Or creating themes. Next stop...Donation!!

I had the issue where absinthe quits unexpectedly like so many others on here. Nothing I did helped, such as restarting in safe mode, downloading and installing again, restoring the phone. Nothing would work. I am on 9A406 and the computer is an 11" Macbook air with 10.7.2 lion. This computer would not work at all. I tried on my old computer and bam, worked flawlessly. The other computer is a 13" first generation Macbook Air with 10.7.2 Lion. Same exact operating system and similar computers (intel dual core processors) leads me to believe anyone with this issue should try on another computer.
