Ok, am I missing something? I’ve been trying to jailbreak since this was announced yeterday. I plug my phone in, launch Absinthe. It detects my iPhone running 5.0.1. I click the “Jailbreak” button, and it says, “Beginning jailbreak. This may take a while…”
And that’s where it all stops. I’ll let it sit for thirty minutes, and then it typically force-quits with some kind of error page.

Haha. You got further than me. I'm still hung up on "Beginning jailbreak, this may take a while..."
Been here for like 20 minutes. My iPhone "sync arrow" thing is spinning at the top of the screen, like it's syncing. But it just sits like this. I tried rebooting (hard resetting) the phone, force quitting and restarting Absinthe, restarting the computer. Can't get it to budge past this part....

As I posted in another thread...
A few key things to do for a successful jailbreak on both iPad and iPhone 4s
1. Make sure you are on latest iTunes
2. Backup your device. Make sure your backup is not password protected
3. Settings / general / reset and erase all settings and content
4. Once device has rebooted, setup as new device then once on springboard turn off wifi
5. Run jailbreak tool. Should be very quick as the device is stock.
6. Once finished turn on wifi and click the greenpois0n app
7. If fails do the VPN trick, Device will reboot, then run cydia.
8. Restore from backup.
The reason people are experiencing long or failed jailbreaks is due to having content already on he device. For the first time this tool is using a multitude of new methods including using a backup during the JB. If you are having troubles just restore to new device and start again from fresh.
I've done two iPads today on 2 diff laptops and they were both very smooth. BTW I used windows absinthe tool. Also remember if you are on Windows 7 run as administrator and also try running in XP mode if the program is cashing.
Happy jail breaking

I got mine done very easily; however, anytime I try to add a repo I get the following error. I've tried many different ones and wait 10-15 minutes and it comes back to the same thing also iRealSMS and a few other apps just crash when I try to open them? Does anyone know how to fix this? iPhone 4s. I downloaded some apps [SBsettings, biteSMS, Winterboard] and they all work perfectly just confused why the repos do not work..

I did this:
backup to iTunes
launch GreenpoisOn (windows version)
click Jailbreak and then follow the instructions from there. So easy..
or just follow these instructions:

Mines is perfect. One thing I noticed yesterday while I was taking pictures was that while I was on the camera app an a bitesms notification pop up on the screen the phone crashes and goes into safe mode, and this happened every single time, has anyone had that issue ?

After jb twice on ipad, second time was after restore as new, i said screw it. Too unstable for me. And basically not worthwhile to me anyway.
For the iphone 4S, it's going better than ipad but that's not saying much. Though i just jb a second time after restoring. Was staying hot, not charging full, and going through the battery. I'd like to keep this jailbroken, but if it gives me same problems or empties out my folders again spreading icons everywhere, i'll just have to forget jailbreaking. This is with bitesms, sbsettings, mywi, my3g. Five icon dock screwed the folders up.
