For some reason I just cant get Absinthe to detect my phone. Windows and itunes detects it but with Absinthe i always get a error. I followed all the steps multiple times. Including erasing all data and starting fresh and still nothing.

Anybody having an issue with the JB failing for the 4S when it is in the JB data load stage? I have had mine fail 6x, telling me that absinthe.exe has stopped working. Phone was backed up and all content was removed. Anyone have any suggestions?

Guys try switching the 4S in Airplane mode and then run Absinthe again!!! It worked for me and the error "Absinthe has stopped working" did not appear. I was able to JB easily. I figured that the error arises due to the fact that the phone starts establishing a connection with your carrier and also automatically screen locks is activated once the software reboots the phone.
Hope this helps!!!

01-23-2012, 12:18 PM #171Jailbreak issues
Hi guys, here’s my issues. I tried windows version absinthe and it kept hanging up saying jailbreak started, this may take awhile. It went on for over an hour and tried it numerous times. I tried the CLI steps it it kept saying something about the file being too large to process.
I reset my phone and restored, then I tried to run absinthe again with the same issue. I attempted CLI version and it seemed to be running fine. I went through all of the steps and at the very end when I toggled VPN it did not reboot. I tried toggling numerous times to no avail. I rebooted my phone manually and it works fine but no jailbreak., no Cydia. Under settings>general>profile it says jailbreak.
Now I'm a relative noob to jailbreaking, I jailbroke my iPhone 4 before I got the 4s. I read the steps on here recommending that I reset the phone, jailbreak, and then restore. Stupid question but when I restore that won't clear out the jailbreak?
I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!

Just to clarify, After I reset my phone and jailbreak it I won't be able to sync it to iTunes and get all my apps, music, mail settings, text, and notes back without clearing out the jailbreak? I'll have to manually download music and apps back to my phone? Trying to make this as efficient as possible.
Again I'm sorry if this is a silly question....

Did the jailbreak. No problems at all.
I synced. I removed music videos and apps
I closed iTunes.
I turned off Passcode lock on iPhone
I DID NOT. Clear all content and settings
I DID NOT. Turn on VPN
I connected iPhone to computer.
I Right clicked on Absinthe and Ran As Administrator.
Jailbreak button. Let it Run.
When prompted I clicked on Icon on the phone
Let it Run. Done.
Connected to iTunes.
Restored Apps and music etc.
Restored to backup.
Done. Everything fine. Opened Cydia. Started adding Mods.
Could not have worked better.

i am having a problem using Absinthe application.... it says " the application Absinthe quit unexpectedly " Click Relaunch to launch the application again or report to see more details or send a report to apple....
is it because i m using Mac version 10.5.8 and not Lion the latest version for MAC....
please i am eager to jailbreak my iPhone 4S......

No problems JBing. Synced/backed up prior to running jb. I did NOT erase all content. took roughly 20 mins, but no issues after running the JB. I restarted the iPad a few times after noticing white mail icon, but been using the iPad all day without any other issues after a couple of reboots.
