    Sorry about the red. I am new to the whole blogging thing and i tried to delete it and do it over but as you can see it doubled up instead. Anyway...I have the current Absinthe that I have downloaded and deleted 3 times from 3 different sites. I have reset the settings on the phone. Do I need to restore the entire phone? When I tried to do that it started downloading an update through apple. Will the update make a difference with the jailbreak? I even tried the redsnow and that kept giving me an error. I'm so frustrated! Thanks for all the suggestions and help.

    It's suggested that you restore. And it seems that in your case, it wouldn't be a bad idea. So if you still want to use Absinthe, go ahead and restore.

    As far as Redsn0w, what error did it throw at you?

    I'm on 4.3.3 JB with iPad 2. Can I just update to 5.1.1 from iTunes? Can I still get untethered JB from this?

    Thanks

    yes you can, but its recommended that if its already jailbroken, you do a RESTORE instead of an UPDATE, then jailbreak again using redsn0w

    Would it make a difference if I chose to Update right away instead of the Restore option?

    Also, would the results be different using redsn0w than absinthe2?

    Thanks

    if you choose the Update function, your phone may randomly crash, reboot, etc.

    this has to due with the phone previously being jailbroken, and by clicking the update feature, itunes will/may overwrite some of those files used in the jailbreak process that is currently stored in the iOS system

    it is BEST that you do a Restore, then jailbreak again using either absinthe or redsn0w, no difference

    just make an itunes backup first

Anybody know how to fix this? Plz help! I am new to this forum but from all the ones I have looked at it seemed to have the most up to date & reliable info so far..thanks

    Oh probaby should have told you that this was an AT&T phone now I have switched it over to a Straight Talk phone by using a sim card from straight talk..

    Here are two errors I am getting inside of Cydia whenever I try to install a program
    1. Subprocess post-instalation script returned error exit status 255
    2. Subprocess/usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    Any idea what that means? It will not let anything install completely, I have downloaded it from Greenpoinson.com and a couple other sites thinking the download was bad, but couldn't be from that many diff sites....I need help & lots of it!!!
    Install TetherMe from Cydia and you can go into the Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Settings Menu and Edit them as below:

    Cellular Data
    APN: att.mvno
    Username:
    Password:
    MMS
    APN: att.mvno
    Username:
    Password:
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33
    MMS Max Size: 1048576
    MMS UA Prof URL:

    You have to remove the :80 at the end of the MMS Proxy so.... From: 66.209.11.33:80 ------> To: 66.209.11.33

    Once I activated cydia half of the applications on my first page disappeared; settings, messages, safari, phone, contacts, voicemail and more. I did back up the phone but none of them are coming back. I can call the phone and the contact shows. I can also send it a message and the message will show but if I try to open it I get a message "URL wasn't loaded" what does this mean and how do I fix it? I need this fixed asap!

    Do they show up when your device is in safe mode by chance?

    Unless you want to get really internal and stuff, you're better off restoring.

    Are we still able to upgrade to 5.1.1 for iPhone 4?

    Do we have to download a certain modded firmware or can we just get it directly from iTunes?

    Directly in itunes is fine. 6.0 doesnt come out until the 19th so Apple is still signing 5.1.1.

    I didn't bother reading thru all 22 pages, but I just had my iPhone 4 unlocked by AT&T and had to restore. I go to jailbreak with Absinthe, and the app didn't launch on my Mac. Apparently, Absinthe doesn't "run" on Mountain Lion. A quick search and all is well now.

    Right click on the Absinthe icon and select “Show Package Contents”.

    Navigate to the Contents/MacOS folder and right click on Absinthe 10.6 and select Open With…Terminal.

    This will invoke the GUI interface of Absinthe, and you can now proceed with the jailbreak outlined in our iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak tutorial.

    Hi All,

    Last night I tried to JB and unlock my wife's 3gs (locked to Orange) and failed miserably. I'll put this down to the fact that I had a bit too much to drink!

    I did make, thankfully, a full backup of her old 3g beforehand as she is moving to a 3gs handset.

    Can someone confirm that the following steps are correct please after I've done a restore as I've previously JB'd the phone unsuccessfully.

    1. Download Absinthe 2
    2. Follow the steps to install and JB.
    3. Let it do its thing
    4. Done.

    If the above is correct do I need to do anything else to unlock it once its jailbroken? How do I get the backup from her old 3g on to the new 3gs, run a restore from iTunes?

    Cheers
    Daz

    you need to install ultrasn0w from cydia to get it unlocked (assuming you are on an unlockable baseband)

    I dont believe a jailbreak for 5.1 on the iphone 4s was ever released, I know it was released for 5.0.1 and 5.1.1, but dont think so for 5.1

    did you at least save any SHSH blobs on the iphone 4s?
