    I did all the steps and it says look for the Absenthe icon on my phone and click it, well it isnt anywhere on my screen. It says check everywhere and I did, so I tried to do it over and it says it will recover, but there is still no greenpoison icon or cydia icon on my phone and I restarted it, any thing I should do, or how can I start over from scratch?

    I did, and it just says that I tried it before and that it will try and fix the issue, and I end up with the same thing, it says complete and no greenpoison or absenthe or any icon added.

    Awesome work guys. I've jailbroken my 4S and my ipad2. I'm definitely gonna donate after all this. I'm sure it took alot of effort and hardwork. But i hope there would be lesser complains considering we have been waiting for this jailbreak for months thanks to all the devs.

    absinthe isn't recognizing that my IPad2 with Mac 10.6.8 is plugged in, any solution?

    My initial j/b went incredibly smooth, no issues with VPN. Cydia was there, I opened it, saw "updating file system" or something similar and set my phone down.

    When I picked it back up and unlocked it, numerous apps, including Cydia, Phone and Mail are now missing. Rebooted twice, no luck.

    Any advise outside of a complete restore and re-j/b?

    Trying to jailbreak my iPad 2 on 5.0.1, but whenever I launch Absinthe, I'm asked to turn off my encrypted backups. That option is greyed out in iTunes and I cannot uncheck the box. I've deleted all the backups in Preferences, quit and relaunched iTunes, but as soon as I relaunch Absinthe, I'm greeted with the same error.

    I could care less if my backups are encrypted or not. How the hell am I able to unencrypt them?!

    Yeah, nothing is working for me. Absinthe still crashes 5 seconds after I open it. The little sudo trick in Terminal didn't help because terminal just tells me "no such file or directory." I'm on 10.7.2 and have tried several cords/ports/reboots and no dice.

    This seems like it wasn't ready for public consumption judging by the numerous issues discussed in this thread.

    I still dont get any option to restore from my backup at any point. When I click the absinthe app icon it does what it should and once it reboots I have cydia on my home screen. I am never presented with another opportunity to restore from my icloud backup. I want to get the rest of my content back onto the phone now. What am I doing wrong?
