Same thing happened to me. Turned off my password and went to do it again and noticed it was taking forever to do anything. Looked on the homescreen and cydia was already there. Opened it up and it all worked fine. I think it jailbreaks it, but it freaks out and throws that error even though it did it.
Or at least that was my experience.

The main errors that pop up seem to be “Error detecting device (lockdown error -5)” and “Could not connect to lockdown“…
We’ve been in contact with @pod2g and @pimskeks, and they confirmed the problem is a random coincidence that creates a timeout. But the fix is fairly easy. All you have to do is go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Content and Settings. Then make sure you download Absinthe 2.0.1 and run it again.
