    after you reset your iphone,the home screen should prompt you to set up your iphone 4s like you did when you first purchased it,do this before the JAILBREAK!it fixed my jailbreaking issues and it seems others as well

    Followed installation for Ipad 2 and did a clean install, got up to pressing the absinthe app andit opens a black page with the logo saying 'ABSINTHE is now setting things up, please stand by... this isnt what the tutorial says should happen and after leaving it for 15 - 20 mins nothing is still happening what am i doing wrong?

    I tried it. I backed up through icloud right before. I reset all settings. I did not go through the normal process of setting up iphone when you first turn it on. I forgot to back up through icloud. I lost all my info. Cydia was there, but I reset all my settings again so that I could back up through icloud, maybe I could have done that a different way. I regained my back up. Now I try to open cydia, and it instantly crashes the app. It wont even open all the way before it closes. I tried hit the jailbreak button on the absinthe exe program, and it says error: device already jailbroken! detected untether. So now I am stuck with this cydia app on my iphone, that will not open. I have tried to reset all settings again, and cydia remains. And I cant run the jailbreak program again because I keep getting this error message? Is there any way to get cydia off the iphone so that I can run the program again?

    I noticed my photos are gone after the JB but it appears the data is still there according to General > About. Anyone else have this problem? I will get iFile and see if I can find them through there.

    So, Jayman, since we seemed to be in the same situation, let me see if I understand what worked for you:

    1) backup
    2) erase content (optional, of course)
    3) go through the "whole set up as new" routine (but only stock apps, no media for expediency)
    4) run absinthe
    5) restore from backup

    Is this correct?

    I just restored my phone back to status quo ante, and might leave it for the night, but I'll try again tomorrow if you can confirm the above. Thanks in advance.

    Default help
    in short, is there anyway to get cydia off your phone, or take the jailbreak away, so that I will not get the error message that states this iphone is already jailbroken! from absinthe.exe program?

    unless I'm wrong, the only choice you have is restore your iphone with itunes.

    Exactly! Once I did the setup as new...you know choose the language etc., it ran flawlessly.
