well i got my 4s finally jailbroken. heres two things i tried at the same time so idk which one did the trick. but if your having the hanging at ABSINTHE screen try this.
1. instead of settings-general-reset-delete everything, just go to itunes-restore-then clean install or whatever and should work.
2.. if using AT&T MCell turn it off.

My "no service" error is fixed by itself. I'm guessing it was my airave that was acting up. As soon as i got out of the private network, i turn my phone off and back on and everything worked.

Worked like a charm on AT&T iPhone 4s running 5.0.1.

I don't post much, but I thought I would leave a bit of info that might be helpful to people who have lost their camera roll.. (for those who did the jailbreak without doing a full restore on their phone, AND those who failed the jailbreak, and have lost their camera roll).
First- download iExplorer here (which is basically reads your iphone as a disc, and therefore explore files on the iPhone)
Second- Assuming you haven't done a clean restore.. run the program and you will see a directory of your phone. Under MEDIA, select "Hackstore" (which I believe is the backup file used by Absinthe), and there you will see a "DCIM" folder containing all your sub folders containing all your photo/video's.
Third- Just copy the photos/videos to a folder on your desktop.
Hope this helps... I know I was a little worried when I thought I lost my photos and videos, so I just thought this might help. (maybe a sticky).

Anyone else has a weird issue where an icon or two is grey after the jailbreak like the appstore or notes?

After removing large apps from my ipad2, leaving 15gb if free space, absinthe stopped hanging. However, when the program said to click on the "jailbreak" icon on fhe home screen, it was not there. I looked at all pages multiple times. Definitely not there. I'm trying agIn now.

I've read through a lot of comments and have found similar problems, but not one exactly like mine. Sorry in advance if this problem has already been cleared. My first jailbreak
I have an iPad2 running 5.0.1 on a Win7 computer.
After I hit jailbreak in absinthe.exe it started working. Maybe after a quarter of the way, about 3 minutes, I had dreaded pop up "Absinthe.exe has stop working." I closed the program and restarted it. By then my iPad2 had already rebooted from earlier during the jail break. Ran it again and clicked jail break. This time it said "Looks like you attempted to apply this jailebreak and it failed. Will try...(this is where it wouldn't show the rest of the sentence). After not clicking anything it then said "Recovery complete. If you want to retry jailbreaking, unplug your...(couldn't see the rest of the sentence). So I unplug and plug in and the process repeated itself a few times.
I did restart the iPad2, but not the computer. Is there something simple I'm missing or any easy fixes I should be aware of? Thanks in advance for the help.
Everyone seems to be very happy with their jailbreak. I want to be one of those individuals
01-24-2012, 05:40 PM #194"Absinthe.exe has stop working." - possible fix
After several failed attempts, I started over from the beginning. This time I extracted the Absinthe zip file to an Absinthe folder. When I opened it up, I saw the Absinthe icon and the "Data" folder just like the tutorial showed. This time the jaillbreak completely successfully in about 15 minutes.
sna2rwl posted this earlier, "Figured it out. Make sure the absinthe.exe and data files are on the desktop. Once I did that, it worked".
Hope this helps.

My Cydia sources (the ones that came by default) won't show any packages at all, so I can't install anything. Can someone enlighten me what is going on and how can I fix this?
And yeah, my photos are missing too. I think they are being detected as "other" in iTunes.
Never mind! Got my pictures back by running the restore twice. If you are having that same issue, run the Restore From Backup option again, and make sure you choose the same backup you chose at first!

managed to did it just fine, but when i open up cydia sources in the manage tab, saw list of sources but is empty in there. Anyone can enlighten me what went wrong? I tried searching for ********** but no result, could only seen apps that come with package. Anyone please help on this issue
To add on, i tried sync with apps downloaded from ********** in the itune library(back-up from old iphone) but failed.

Everything seemed to work as described for me but I can't get Cydia to launch on the phone. I rebooted it but didn't help.
Doing a factory restore through iTunes now and will re-jailbreak again to see but not sure what gives.
