      Hi all, I also failed in 1st, 2nd, 3rd times. Then I follow tips 1 & 2 and try again.Finally it works (ipad is rebooted) after pressing the new icon.ONE thing very very important is that you need to have internet access open (I am via WIFI) at that moment. I did not connect to internet for prevous failed case. Hope this can help the one having

      Just jailbroke iPhone 4s, works great but I am having problems with iTunes match and being able to play my songs. I tried disabling iTunes match from the phone and the Mac, hard reset the phone and still doesn't want to play the songs. It displays my playlists from iTunes match and has all my songs but won't play anything associated withe match. HELP!!!!!

      Assuming you're using windows, start a command prompt and type "netsh winsock reset", then press enter. Reboot your computer and try again.

      Check your Hosts file - if you used tinyumbrella to save your 4.3.3 blobs then run the program, select advanced and untick the option about hosts file on exit (or similar).

      Jailbreak runs. Absinthe app is there, opens and goes to the webpage. iPad reboots. NO CYDIA APP. jailbreak worked perfect on my iphone 4S. Will not produce the cydia app on the ipad. Please HELP!

      Only problem I've had with the JB, is that music (I'm assuming music bought from iTunes as I don't have any music that isn't from iTunes) doesn't play...

      I had minor glitches but in the end it worked great on my iPad 2.I ran Absinthe through VMware on Lion (no Mac and the Windows version wasn't available, at the time) It took about 20 min. I had white icons and corrupted graphics but after opening Settings my iPad rebooted and it fixed the icons but not the corrupted graphics. I removed and reinstalled Iconoclasm and everything worked great after that.For people doing an upgrade from 4.3.3. -First do a backup of your Cydia setup.-Take screenshots of your sources or write them down (if you've added any). -Install a backup program, such as Xbackup and backup your system. Once it's done, copy the backup file to your computer. -After Absinthe is done, run Cydia and enter your sources again. -Install xBackup and copy the file back to your iPad, in the same folder on the iPad ( i think it was /var/mobile/library/xbackup/backups) So the app can find it. -Run Xbackup and tap Restore.

      I'm starting to think half these posts are frauds and lies, especially those who happen to brag how thier JB went along in seconds. Why post it if not to brag. Anyway, tried absinthe on Windows7, XP, and the Mac (lastest OS and latest iTunes) and still fail. Either the app just sits there with grayed out buttons or the returned some dtrap junk on the mac. Tried running it from terminal, still no go. I refuse to clear my iPad knowing full well it will not work. I think this JB should NOT be released until clear instructions are posted in black and white as to how we can get around these bugs. I am highly disappointed as this is the 2nd or 3rd iteration of this hyped up JB that does not work on any of my 4 machines. What gives? Also, what are the requirements? iTunes? what version, O/S? then what version. Just pluging in my iPad is not enough

      Furthermore, what state does the iPad have to be in? home? DTU? broken? sick? I've cleared VPN, and even removed my passwords.. still fail. tried 3 different usb cables, even went as fart to verify that my usb comm is not on charge.. still fail. Does itunes need to open just as I plug in the iPad or does this so called absinthe do a port scan and detect the ipad? Every site I go to is laden with advertisements and links to viral sites. Does the windows version of the JB truly work or just for show? Anyway, I'm going to sit here and wait for apple to once again laugh at this JB joke, patch us to 6.0.1 and the cat and mouse junk happen again.

      Too bad it's not working for you! I just tried te break my Ipad free yesterday....and it did....without any errors. Please note that I'm not quite an expert, but with the tutorial given in Dutch (my native language) it was working fine, and within ten minutes.Hopefully you'll get it working.

      I'm not sure why you're having problems but I had my iPad 2 on 4.3.3 and I first did a complete backup, in itunes. Then i did an upgrade to 5.0.1 and then I restored my iPad from the backup. Since the Mac version was the only thing available I fired up Lion in VMware and ran Absinthe and jb'd. At first I thought it stopped working as it was taking a long time but I didn't notice that the program said that the rest needs to be done on the iPad by running the jailbreak program, meaning that you then run the Absinthe app.I had a few glitches, which were solved by going into Settings at which point the iPad rebooted and then removing and installing iconoclasm cleared up the rest of the glitches. It's been a day and half and everything's been working fine.
