    Did you do the basic setup after erasing all content and settings? Setup as new iphone and then run Absinthe. This just happened to me.

    The JB went smooth on my 4S, but now my springboard is corrupt. I have no Phone, message, safari or settings icons. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I wonder if by re-jailbreaking a first time failed absinthe jailbreak leaves unwanted residue that might make the iphone buggy on the long run.
