      wtf, i wrote something and it enver got posted, all that remains is this stupid scrap!Ok, here it is again, and I hope someone could be kind enough to help me out with this. I have an iPhone 4 which was restored to 5.0.1 firmware before I got it handed to me. It was with AT&T carrier, and I presume is still locked to that carrier. When I insert any other carrier sim, it refuses to acknowledge it. My baseband is stuck at 04.11.08 and I dont know if theres an unlock/jailbreak for this situation. Been stuck with this metal paper-weight brick for a month and no luck to get its call functionality working. As far as I know this phone has never been jailbroken. I am skeptical to procedure the Untethered Jailbreak I found somewhere here earlier to JB iPh.4, for the following 2 reasons:1) it makes a clashing statement about "this guide is for iPhone 4 running 5.0.1, etc.. BUT a few lines down says that I should download Custom firmware files for 5.0.1 from Apple and restore using the SHIFT+Restore method in iTunes. A lot of people have had problems getting stuck in DFU's, bootloops, white screens and general chaos and worse. I dunno if I want to take that risk, perhaps Ive misread the guide? I really need this sorted out, its gotten on my final nerves and i want to throw this shyt out the window. As patient as ive been, like many others as well, i cant seem to find a blog/post/somETHING to direct me towards a Jailbreak+Unlock for my iPhones situation. No Gevey sim out either for this baseband and I am just,.. so.. lost.. -HeLP!

      hey! are you currently on 5.0.1? Whats your baseband? Has your iPhone ever had a successful jailbreak before? Im kinda lost myself.. got a restored 5.0.1 iphone, unfortuntely the baseband was updated along with it. Someone assumed i could find the unlock/JB for this easily.. and that was 2 months ago.. boy were they wrong!After digging deep into the world of iphone hacks, hackers, blogs, pod2g, dev team and so much more.. i had concluded that i am not willing to take the risk unless i know the guide/instructions/software available does exactly as it should, with no errors.. Kinda how 4.x.x versions are easily JB'able. Since 5.0.x is still new there are lotta bugs pod2g and dev team and others have tried to erradicate (tops for the hard work and endless hours!!!!) , but none of it seems applicable to my situation.. i was wondering if u, or anyone else were in the same freaking boat.. which is slowly sinking.

      Guys this is awesome! Thank you! But I'm having troubles. When I open Absinthe it opens fine and I hit jailbreak which is fine. But then it stalls on "Beginning Jailbreak, this may take awhile." then after about 10 minutes Absinthe just crashes. Anybody know what's up?

      When I ran Absinthe, it detected my iPad, I clicked Jailbreak and the progress bar went about 10% and stopped there. I waited about 10 minutes, quit the app and restarted. It said that I had apparently tried to jailbreak and had failed and that it would fix the error. It recovered (says recovery completed), the progress bar is full, but it isn't doing anything with my iPad.Any help?

      You can jailbreak the iPhone 4, but you can't unlock the 4.11.08 baseband. It will still be a paperweight for you.

      Everything worked great! Thanks greenpois0n team. On iphone 4s just had to reload Absinthe a couple times and it connected and on iPad 2 turned on VPN and it said it wouldnt do it and then restarted and cydia was there. Excellent job. And all those PC users out there complaing: stop being cheap and get a Mac and appreciate that they'll even put this for you guys.

      YES!!! Follow these instructions by sidneysides if you want your iPad2 to complete the jailbreak process. No need to run the Absinthe icone just go straight to settings/network/vpn and turn it to on....you will get the VPN error and then it will reboot. I spent hours trying it all the other ways. THANK YOU sidneysides and of course the Jailbreak DReam TEam

      I start with my iPad2 and it worked like a charm . Then i did with my iPhone 4GS , had the icon but did not work and I think it is because the server is down. I think when this problem is solved it will work. Remember there are millions who wants to jailbreak and heavy load on the server caused this, So it brook down.Thanks DREAM TEAM you are great and did it.

      crap. thanks for the update. so maybe i should consider selling this one off somehow and getting an unlocked one instead. Atleast I can JB and use it as a phone. Thanks.

      Works great on the iPad and the iphone (mostly). The only minor problem on the iPhone is that when I go to settings and select GENERAL, it crashes. It may not be the jb, but may be one of the jb programs I installed from Cydia. Like I said, it's minor and I'm able to do everything, but access the hardly missed GENERAL. I may restore the iphone and try again because the ipad is not having the problems and I installed the same programs except Tetherme (which didn't make a difference in General on the iphone when I deleted it. It still crashed.). Let me know if anyone is having issues with GENERAL crashing.Smiley :-)

      Experienced one more problem. PRE-JB: I use to be able to connect to my computer (screen share) using a VNC program, on my iPad 2, but now it won't connect POST-JB.

      Even 0.4 is not working for me. I have got 4S 64 GB 9A406 and Win 7 64bit.Absinthe stops after creating a file in C drive which is just about 1 GB size and then it stops in the beginning jailbrake phase.
