    Anyone else having an issue with the user login to Cydia? I can login, but it won't stay logged in when I reboot my phone the way it used to on my old iPhone 4. For this reason, I can't use my licenses for programs like Lockinfo and Shrink. Any suggestions?

    No it will not, or should not. It incorporates the iBooks sandbox fix from the corona untether

    Try a reboot and if that doesn't work, restore and try again.

    To fix the photos disappearing you need to re-run the app (absinthe) once to fix and then once to jailbreak

    I've completed the procedure from my Mac to my iPad2... but am now having a problem when I tap on the Absinthe logo on the iPad2.
    I just get a white screen that doesn't seem to do anything?

    I thought I'd test my iPad2 before my 4S as I need my phone working more than the iPad!
    Anyone else stuck with a white screen? Maybe it's just the servers are really busy - like it was when the original Greenpoison came out for the iPhone 4 4.2.1?

    I'm not sure what happened. The jb went through just fine. Cydia opened but after it re-booted Cydia was gone, my camera icon is gone and it won't let me re-jailbreak cause it says it already jailbroken. Can anybody help??

    Try rebooting the device and then run absinthe again.

    Try a reboot and if that doesn't work, restore and try again.



    After i restore again from icloud.. Should i re-jailbreak again?

    Please read the guide carefully.. If the absinthe logo doesn't work try taking out all of your OWN VPN set ups and then let absinthe run the VPN it set up, this could also be an incomplete jailbreak which means you need to restore and re-jailbreak, remember for absinthe (the icon) to work you need to have VPN turned on!

    Just restore your iPhone and try again, pay careful attention to all the steps.

    I just tried it and click on the absinthe icon and got a white screen then nothing else happen. MAC version obviously too buggy right now, I'll wait and try the windows version.

    Thanks for the reply.
    When I did the jailbreak the first time I didn't have any VPN settings at all - hence why I was getting confused.
    Now i have a VPN called 'jailbreak' after erasing my iPad and starting again. Unfortunately I now get 'A connection error occurred' when I try to run the VPN. As I've just restored from scratch, I don't have any VPN's of my own set up anyway.

    If nothing happens go into settings, turn on vpn. Wait for the error (normal) and then wait for the phone to reboot.
