    Works just fine here, I can disable 3G and be on Edge then back and forth no problems.

    Works 100% here.

    Vmware OSX 10.6.8
    Itunes 10.3

    Did a backup and full erase and launch absynth, whole process took less than 2 min and everything installed fine.

    Good job, donated to reward the effort.

    Exclamation For All People Stuck On No Progress Bar Movement Issue
    Okay, everyone experiencing the "stuck on beginning of jailbreak" issue for a long time, read this!

    So you've been at the beginning of the jailbreak for a while and progress bar hasn't moved in the last 10 mins. Well, here's an easy fix. Close Absinthe and slide to unlock your phone and go through all "setup options" until you get to the home screen of your iPhone (do not backup yet, just continue without backing up for now). Go to Settings and "Erase All Data Settings". Now close iTunes on your computer when the device reboots and do not backup yet. Now slide to unlock your phone again and go through all the options until you get "Activating Phone" screen comes up. Wait for your phone to active (may take a couple minutes), then STOP. Don't click anything more on your iOS device.

    Now open Absinthe and click "Jailbreak". It shouldn't take more then a couple minutes to jailbreak. Once it's complete and it tells you to "slide to unlock your device", continue through all the remaining setup options till you get your home screen once again. Scroll to the second page and click the "Absinthe" app (technically a web app, but for all you noobs I'll call it an app so you understand). You're almost guaranteed to get the "Error establishing a database connection" issue. So after that shows up, go to your Settings and swipe the VPN to ON and wait for the error to come up. Now wait. Your device should reboot and voila!

    Done :-)

    For tHose of you having issues continue to hit VPN every couple of minutes if you get white screen it does work took me 5 tries. If you get white icons just reboot and you will be fine. It's not complicated just be patient

    has anyone tried this without erasing all content and settings? The instructions say it could take more then 20 minutes if you don't but my point is... wouldn't it take that long if not longer to restore all your content anyway???? so why erase it all?

    Default Absinthe Compatability Fix for OSX 10.5.8 users
    Quote Originally Posted by Groupyloopy View Post

    Try This...

    It seems that Absinthe requires libcurl.4.dylib version 6.0.0 whereas Mac OS X 10.5.8 has 5.0.0, this hack works by replacing libcurl4 with version 6.0.0. This involves tweaking system files, PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    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..

    I JB my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S (factory unlock).

    everything worked just fine. I did not factory reset any of my devices and the JB on both was completed within 15 min each.

    So far everything works (including siri) and no bugs found yet....

    I installed m3g and mywi and all is perfect.


    ---sooooo far.


    Those that are having issues with the vpn...

    when the screen turns white, hit the home button, open settings click the vpn to on, hit the home button again and then tap on the poisi0n icon. Worked perfect for me...

    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.
    You're supposed to get an error of some sort, it will then reboot a minute or two later

    All that has been said is that if you want an unlock to stay on 5.0.1 (specifically 9A405) if you're not on that then just download the IPSW and restore to it using iTunes (no need to point hosts at anything other than the default)
