    For some reason I just cant get Absinthe to detect my phone. Windows and itunes detects it but with Absinthe i always get a error. I followed all the steps multiple times. Including erasing all data and starting fresh and still nothing.

    Did you restore and setup as new? Tried right clicking absinthe and running as admin?

    What windows version do you have? Try right clicking and running as administrator. If you have vista try right clicking, going to properties, compatibility and ticking compatibility to windows xp sp3 and run as admin.

    Reboot your machine as well.

    Running Windows 7, and I ran absinthe as administrator too. I will try and do the reboot to see if that works.

    Guys try switching the 4S in Airplane mode and then run Absinthe again!!! It worked for me and the error "Absinthe has stopped working" did not appear. I was able to JB easily. I figured that the error arises due to the fact that the phone starts establishing a connection with your carrier and also automatically screen locks is activated once the software reboots the phone.

    Hope this helps!!!

    Yes I did all of that. I finally got it to work tho. I used another computer with Vista on it and it went smooth. I was running Windows 7 before. Dont know if its buggy with Windows 7 but on my other Vista PC i had no issues at all.

    any chance this jailbreak will be available to users of 3GS? my power button is broken and can't put into DFU mode for other jailbreaks. If not, anyone have any ideas for me?
    You can get into a DFU state without using the power button, however it does require making a modification to the ipsw,& the only way out is to do a restore.

    Hi guys, here’s my issues. I tried windows version absinthe and it kept hanging up saying jailbreak started, this may take awhile. It went on for over an hour and tried it numerous times. I tried the CLI steps it it kept saying something about the file being too large to process.

    I reset my phone and restored, then I tried to run absinthe again with the same issue. I attempted CLI version and it seemed to be running fine. I went through all of the steps and at the very end when I toggled VPN it did not reboot. I tried toggling numerous times to no avail. I rebooted my phone manually and it works fine but no jailbreak., no Cydia. Under settings>general>profile it says jailbreak.

    Now I'm a relative noob to jailbreaking, I jailbroke my iPhone 4 before I got the 4s. I read the steps on here recommending that I reset the phone, jailbreak, and then restore. Stupid question but when I restore that won't clear out the jailbreak?

    I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!

    Hi, yes when you restore it will clean out everything. Do a restore and setup as new and run the program again (either Absinthe or cinject, ONE of the two). And you will be fine.

    Just to clarify, After I reset my phone and jailbreak it I won't be able to sync it to iTunes and get all my apps, music, mail settings, text, and notes back without clearing out the jailbreak? I'll have to manually download music and apps back to my phone? Trying to make this as efficient as possible.

    Again I'm sorry if this is a silly question....

    Switched to Airplane mode, and it still gave me the error. Once it reboots it auto locks the screen, I made sure that settings were lock screen "never".
    Any other recommendations?

    Had same issue to Begin with. Make sure iTunes closed. Use good cable. Right click Absinthe Icon and choose Run as administrator. Then should recognize. Remember to turn off iPhone Passcode lock first.

    Did the jailbreak. No problems at all.

    I synced. I removed music videos and apps

    I closed iTunes.

    I turned off Passcode lock on iPhone

    I DID NOT. Clear all content and settings

    I DID NOT. Turn on VPN

    I connected iPhone to computer.

    I Right clicked on Absinthe and Ran As Administrator.

    Jailbreak button. Let it Run.

    When prompted I clicked on Icon on the phone

    Let it Run. Done.

    Connected to iTunes.

    Restored Apps and music etc.

    Restored to backup.

    Done. Everything fine. Opened Cydia. Started adding Mods.

    Could not have worked better.

    IPhone 4s 16GB Factory unlocked 9A405. 5.0.1

    Thanks DreamTeam

    is it because i m using Mac version 10.5.8 and not Lion the latest version for MAC....

    Figured it out. Make sure the absinthe.exe and data files are on the desktop. Once I did that, it worked. Thanks for everybody's help!

    iPad2.

    No problems JBing. Synced/backed up prior to running jb. I did NOT erase all content. took roughly 20 mins, but no issues after running the JB. I restarted the iPad a few times after noticing white mail icon, but been using the iPad all day without any other issues after a couple of reboots.

    Thanks!

    I want to clarify something. If I completely reset my phone and setup as new then I can go back after I jailbreak it and restore from my backup for all of my apps and music without messing up the jailbreak?
