In case you get an error with Windows needs to shut down this program, you need to extract the files before you run the Jailbreak. If you download and run you will have problems. After you extract the files click on the Absinthe icon...

why is it fully working for some and not for others? what's the difference?

Okay, here is what is confusing people I think-- at least it did me. Whether you erase content and settings or not, you phone must be fully activated for Absinthe to work. The first time I tried, I hadn't gone through setting up my phone again after erasing content. Just now, I didn't erase anything at all-- I just followed the Absinthe directions and applied the jailbreak to my fully-functioning phone and it worked a treat. Can't wait to get back to a jailbroken phone. Thanks Chronic-Dev!

I just JBed my iPad 2 in under 3 minutes...didn't even do backup/restore/erase as I had 0.1GB of data on it to begin with.
Everything worked flawlessly, not a single error...and none of the screens spent more than 10 seconds in the same position (both Absinthe and actions on iPad)...
I also did run Absinthe as administrator even though it doesn't mention that in the guide...it doesn't hurt...

Paypal link is not working. Takes me to "Sorry your last action could not complete". I hope this is new and not just an indication of how few bother to hit the link.

well!!! I was finally able to jailbreak my iphone...HURRRRAAAAY!!! the only problem I have now is that when I add sources in cydia, they hang and don't finish all the way. Has anybody else experienced this problem?

tried it, even after reading a lot of forum posts where things didn't work properly, or work at all. for me, didn't work. kept saying preparing jailbreak for about 30mins. before i started i wiped my phone. jb'd enough older i-devices, but this doens't seem to do the trick for me. restoring it now, waiting for a more stable jb tool. this is no bashing-post, just saying it didn't work for me. hope others do have more luck. and for the ones that did get a jailbroken phone after using absynthe: enjoy it, lucky b#stards! ;-) grmbl...

Why is cydia taking very long to update packages??? i tried to install ********** via cydia.hackulo.us and it takes ages on the part where it says ---> doneackages??
why is this?
01-22-2012, 05:53 AM #118
TotalKore, after erasing content, did you first set up your phone (ie, so it's ready to make a call--call your mother just to be sure; I'm sure she wants to hear from you)? That was my mistake the first time, as I'm sure it was for many people. The second time I'd didn't wipe anything, and even with nearly 32gb of content it went quickly.Quaerite et invenietis.

thanks for the guide - looking forward to jailbreaking the 4S and getting back to you guys on the progress of it

I'm just about to jailbreak my 4s - I have just made a backup of my 4s to iCloud. My question is, once I have done the jailbreak (windows), how then do I restore my phone using iCloud???
Thanks in advance
