I was able to jailbreak my friend's Ipad 3 with absinthe 2.0.2 first time with absolute perfection. I guess it's time for me to get one.
a quick question, is firmware 5.1.1 a worthy upgrade to 5.0.1???
if not then I really don't feel like going through the hassle of re-installing all the apps and tweaks.

Hey, sorry for the completely ignorant question, but i'm trying to unlock my iphone4 on 5.1.1 to other carriers. What do I do after Jailbreaking through Absinthe? Is there an app in Cydia I have to get?

I did the full restore to new device 5.1.1 I have now restored 14 or more times now & every time it fails to jailbreak I restore it from my Mac to ios version 5.1.1 9B206. When I start the jailbreak it stops/freezes at the waiting for reboot.....etc like its still loading & it never completes the jailbreak. I have waited up to 1 hr for it to finish but still nothing. so I start all over again after I restart my computer, delete absinthe from my computer then redownload it. I have tried every version of absinthe & now I'm using absinthe 2.0.2 for mac. I need help & this is my 10th jailbreak & this has been the worst so far.

I did a full restore to my 3GS (yes, still on old technology, but until I can afford a shiny new 4s, here I am!) to 5.1.1. I had the phone jb'd using iPad bb 06.15.00 and carrier unlocked with Ultrasn0w. It worked great on 4.3.3 and I got a wild hair up my butt and wanted to upgrade to 5.1.1! I figured with Absinthe and the Ultrasn0w fixer I'd be all set.
But now I can't get past the activation. It's asking for an original SIM. Is there a way around this so I can proceed with Absinthe? (I'm on a Mac, btw)
Thanks for all the community support in this forum... you guys are the best!!!

Thanks for your infinite knowledge on iPhones!

Figured it out. After the jailbreak, all my themes were put in a new folder altogether. Pre-JB, they were in var/Themes/dgK2m9. After the JB, a new folder, var/Themes/6o9v1K was created, with the themes cloned in it. The new one has become the active Themes folder. Once I made my locale change in it, my weaher was updated.

If you need to use redsnow to boot the phone then you have new bootrom in which case you can simply install rocky raccoon 5.1.1 Untether in cydia.

hey guys I have an iphone 4S jailbroken on 5.0.1 & unlocked with sam method. I have backed up my sam ticket with cookie. My concern is if I update to 5.1.1 and jailbreak my baseband will update from 1.0.14 to 2.0.12. Will that affect my unlock with the sam backup ticket? Has anyone with an iphone 4S updated to 5.1.1 jailbreak and succeeded in unlocking their iphone with cookie on 5.1.1 with the 2.0.12 baseband?

So I'm trying to Jb my i4 (5.1.1.), but Absinthe 2.0 (I've tried both 2.0, 2.0.1. and 2.0.2) just keeps crashing on me. What is wrong? It runs fine for the first minute or two, but it always bugs out somewhere along the four minute mark.
Dunno why, since I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary. I keep having to clear the previous JB attempts, and start oer, only to end up with the same result over and over again. I've re-downloaded the software, but nothing helps.
I'm soo frustrated right now...

my iphone4 on 5.1.1 is not supported? o.0
