    Just an FYI, I read on iPhone Dev's twitter to leave the VPN password blank and just click next.

    I restarted my computer, re-downloaded the redsnow file and now I am stuck at "Creating backup..." where as before it only took about 3 minutes. It's been about 10 minutes or so now.

    I'm on verizon. 9A405 is the old 5.0.1, which you still get if you update over wifi. If you restore it again via itunes you'll get 9a406. Carrier shouldn't matter.

    Yes, leave all passwords blank.

    I also don't know if 9A405 or 9A406 matters. I just tried restoring and itunes updated it automatically and it worked. The restore alone may have been all it needed.

    I am about to try this. I am currently on 9A405...let's see if it works for me.

I got the same VPN configuration error I was getting previously, but this time it rebooted when I hit ok. So maybe it just needed to be restored, or maybe the update (9A406) is required for this to work. Not sure, but it worked flawlessly this time around. And quite quickly I might add.

    when you did a restore, did you restore from a back up or as a fresh? i dont want to lose all my data if i have to do a full restore from new.

    I just restored as new, basically cuz I didn't want to wait for it to sync everything up. If you use icloud, anything backed up there, like contacts, should come down automatically. I wouldn't think that it would matter though.

    Question

    How long does the "cinject -w" part take? Its been like 20 minutes and it keeps doing something with date and time settings...

    I don't do the VPN thing until its fully runs its course, right?

    Default Took awhile, but I got it

    I found a modified version of the OP's steps
    Jailbreak 5.0.1 Untethered iPad 2 And iPhone 4S With Windows Absinthe CLI [How-To Guide]

    Basically the other site has you wait until after the "-w" step until you mess with installing the profile or any VPN items.

    After the "-w" step I installed, didn't use a password, and turned on the VPN. Worked like a charm after that

    Sorry if I am not allowed to link to another site that may be a rival, I just wanted to help the other users

    So for those of us that the iPhone 4S is our first iPhone, now that we are jailbroken, how do we go about finding/getting tetherme, mywi, etc. ?

    Also for those that have those programs what are your thoughts on the tethering programs and how do they compare?

    Ok, so I think I have figured out why we are having problems and how to solve it. It worked for me anyways.

    After the back up is completed, see if you're getting a FATAL error. If so, restore your device as new or erase all content from your device and start the process over.

    After doing that, it worked perfectly. I have Cydia and just have to do a restore to get my information back.

    Hope this helps!

    The best way to do this is to do a reset first erasing all content and data. Follow the steps to jailbreak and once jailbroken do another reset but this time only select reset all setttings. Once the phone comes back restore from back up using icloud. Now you will have all your data back but still be jailbroken.

    If people are struggling to get this jailbreak working, i just seen a tweet that the guy making the windows version said that a few hours max for it to be released

    so if all else fails with the cli method then just have to wait a few more.
