    Yeah 40 minutes was enough for me. I'm back to normal now. Will hang tight till I see what happens on here. Afraid that if it's buggy trying to jailbreak then the phone will end up buggy. Wonder what the reason is for some having no issue at all. I'm on a 4S 5.0.1 (9A405)...trying to do this from Win XP computer.
    im on 4s 5.0.1 (9A405) and ive used used about 34 of the available 57GB. I didnt erase any of my content before trying the JB either

    Did you do the basic setup after erasing all content and settings? Setup as new iphone and then run Absinthe. This just happened to me.

    The JB went smooth on my 4S, but now my springboard is corrupt. I have no Phone, message, safari or settings icons. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I wonder if by re-jailbreaking a first time failed absinthe jailbreak leaves unwanted residue that might make the iphone buggy on the long run.
