    Found the problem. I wiped the phone clean, but didn't go in to activate it yet. So it just sat on the English and other languages screen. I went ahead and did the process to activate it, and the jailbreak took very quickly.

    Default Absinthe quit unexpectedly.
    I'm trying on a fresh restore to 5.0.1 of an iPad 2. I open Absinthe and get Absinthe quit unexpectedly. If my iPad isn't hooked to the Mac Mini it will tell me to connect the device and when I do I get same error. I tried downloading a second copy of Absinthe and same thing.

    Any ideas??
    I thought my carrier was bad til I got a new web host

    My only question is do I absolutely have to back up and wipe my iPhone clean before doing the jailbreak? I'm at work right now and don't have my macbook pro with me....

    absinthe isn't recognizing that my iphone is plugged in. anyone having this problem. I wiped my phone and went through the set up process again, but it still says "plug in your iphone 4s or ipad 2 to begin."

    I don't think this works on OS X 10.7.2 - Absinthe won't open with crashing with Absinthe quit unexpectedly error.

    Will try on iMac later

    I'd just reboot the computer, reboot the iPad, and start fresh. That usually takes care of dumb little errors like that.

    I have downloaded and unziped Absinthe on my Mac desktop. I am using an older Mac PowerMac G5 on OSX 10.5.8. When I go to open Absinthe, I am getting an error stating that "my computers architecture does not support this program." Does this mean that Absinthe is only able to be used on newer Intel Macs?..Please let me know if anybody has encountered this problem or has any solutions....Otherwise, looks like I am waiting for the Windows version.
