    I found one issue on a Mac. For me, Absinthe had to be run with root privileges. It would hang up otherwise.

    Maybe it's because you have the newest 5.1.1. I know it's not supported by snowbreeze don't know about absinthe though

    That was for whipslash

    Exclamation Want to upgrade 3Gs to 5.1.1, jailbreak and carrier unlock.. can you help me?
    Hi y'all.

    Can anyone help me out a little bit?

    It's been a while since I jail broke and unlocked anything, I searched around, but could not find the answers for my particular situation. So here's my question:

    I have a 3Gs running 4.3.3 (8J2) with 06.15.00 firmware. I carrier unlocked before with UltraSn0w. What would be my next steps to get this baby updated to 5.1.1, jailbroken and carrier unlocked?

    I'm on a Mac, btw.

    Thanks a bunch!

    In the above guide, it says "You must unlock your iOS device and find Cydia on your home screen." Can it unlock BB 5.16.01? I've been trying all night but phone says "Invalid Sim" and sometimes "No Service" when toggling the "Airplane Mode". Cannot upgrade baseband as per warnings on iPad BB upgrade.

    What should I do?

    I'll prob. get bashed for asking, since I've been jailbreaking since the original iPhone, but what does it mean by iPad2 | 5.1.1 (newer 32nm iPad 2 not included yet) ? how do I know if my iPad 2 can or can not be jailbroken?

    Cheers

    For sziklassy:

    Not all of us are computer-savvy! So why don't ya backoff a bit and be a little bit less-arrogant when somebody asks for help/advice.

    I had the same problem, I had to restore my phone again with the custom IPSW from Iclarified to change my phone from 9B208 back to 9B206, once I done this it connected to Apsinthe and jaibroke it. I have an iPhone 4 5.1.1 (9B206, now) and jailbroke it on windows 7. i'm sure you are having the same problem, IClarified has the download links for the 9B206 IPSW, hope this helps, it worked for me with the same issue

    He wasn't being arrogant, there's plenty of guides/videos out there now that can help you if you have questions or problems. If it's causing you that much trouble then maybe you shouldn't be JB for your phone's sake....

    I'm confused because I don't see support for ipad 3 and I thought the new Absinthe 2.0.1 was able to jailbreak the newest ipad.
