Sweet, thanks for the quick answer celeron. Seems a bit odd though....why keep signing the older version? Usually, the window would almost certainly be closed by now.

You guys need to put at the very top DO NOT UPGRADE to the latest 5.1.1 It is incompatible and does not work. When i did my backup I let it up grade thinking it was still 5.1.1. and not i have to wait for the Dev Team to hopefully get this one worked out.

1. download 9B206
2. plug in phone via USB and put phone in DFU mode ( turn phone off, hold home and sleep/wake 10 sec then hold home until iTunes sees it)
3. iTunes will say do you want to restore hit yes then select restore on iTunes/iphone screen while holding down SHIFT key,point to your 9B206 5.1.1 firmware that you just downloaded
4. phone will restore,( if you get error on osx try on windows?)
5. open absinthe 2.0.1 it will now recognize your phone, hit jailbreak
for those of you that don't know what 9B206 is heres the scoop
apple put out a silent update to 5.1.1 on iPhone 4 GSM only
The firmware 5.1.1 stays the same but the build number changes from 9B206 to 9B208 which absinthe 2.0.1 doesn't support 9B208 only 9B206
Lastly to see if your iPhone 4 GSM (AT&T is gsm in the united states) has build 9B206 or 9B208 go to settings general about scroll down and it'll tell you which version of 5.1.1 you have!
So if you have 9B208 see my post above to fix this, you'd better hurry cause I don't know how long apple will continue signing it!

It is easier than your steps above...
1. Download 9B206 you can find it on the web
2. Start iTunes and back up your iPhone 4 GSM
3. Hold shift and hit Restore then locate the iphone3,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore and restore with 5.1.1
4. After it is done reinstall your backup
5. Run the jailbreak software and you are done

I've been running a 4s on 5.0.1 (9A405) jb'd with absinthe extensively tweaked for some time happily. Is there any reason for me to update and redo it all? Naturally it's driving me nuts wondering since it's an option Instinct says don't fix what ain't broke.... Pros? Cons? I've been too busy to keep up. Just jb'd my buddy's 5.1.1 4s tonight smoothly. He's happy to be back

5.1.1 has better battery life and a few other small features

What if I feel my battery is pretty good? If pkg backup works I may consider but I've got a ton of time invested in my setup. I'll do the leg work if it's worth it but I'm wondering if I have no gripes will I notice a worth while gain? Battery improvement. Lol. How about it won't last long. A day and I'm happy. And it does that. Charge at night. Occasionally I get to the nervous 30 percent range by dinner.

The JB seemed to work, but I am having this issue: the weather in my themes (Jade HD and Basalt HD) do not display the correct location. I had checked the config files and they do have the correct weather code. I've tried repringing, rebooting, even uninstalling and reinstalling the themes with no success. Any ideas?

I'm thinking I'll stay where I am and be comforted that the gods have cracked the most recent. Can't see how I would gain from it in my circumstance. I'm not the type to do it just to see 5.1.1 in my settings. Lol. That's a silly reason to go through it all.

Des anybody here know anyone who worked on the jailbreak personally? Just that I eagerly await the iPad 2,4 absinthe support
05-27-2012, 05:15 AM #79
I have restored as mentioned on the instructions but Absinthe keep saying I need to activate the device before using it. It was already activated before the restore, also I don't own the original microSIM. Any help on this stuck?

Is this "jailbreak" also an unlock? Sorry for the rookie question, but I am living overseas and desperately want to unlock my AT&T iPhone 4. I've done this download successfully, but my UK TMobile SIM is not working in it so I am assuming it's not unlocked. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
