Common issues during a jailbreak
I did a fresh restore last night and that's the only time I seen any progress with this jailbreak. It went through the whole process and then when I clicked the absinthe icon it rebooted and cydia wasn't there.
I tried the vpn toggle trick and I got a network error but the phone didn't reboot like many said it would and the toggle switch went right back to the off position.
I'm stuck. I will try what you mentioned above the "reset all settings" suggestion. I really don't want to remove my content again it takes forever to come back. Also my camera roll was empty upon restore. -_-

Today was horrific with the jailbreak process. Performed a restore last night but when it was time to hit the absinthe icon to load cydia the phone restarted and then when it loaded cydia wasn't there. I hit the icon again and nothing happened.
I eventually loaded all my data back to the phone via my backup thru itunes and the jailbreak was gone when the phone booted up.
I seen somewhere that I didn't have to "remove all content and settings" to get the jailbreak to work but just "reset all settings" did that and nothing happened.
Not only did nothing happen but afterwards when people sms messaged me their names would not pop up just their numbers.
I'm considering waiting until another version of this jailbreak comes out that has addressed some of these issues before I retry

i have music from itunes synced and stored on my phone i guess the "old school" way of syncing music from itunes to iphone. I havent used nor have i used itunes match at any point, stock or after the jailbreak. I have been doing some reading and have tried the mobile substrate add-ons deal by individually going thru cydia tweaks and seeing if there is a single culprit and have not come across any. Its still wont play after that test. So I'll try re-syncing and remove all songs and then re-load them post jailbreak and see if that does any good.

Now if your problem is in relation to a total app icon white out, there are some things to try that involve the latest version of the absinthe jailbreak. I think its versioin 0.2 that addresses the white out icon deal amongst a few other issues that seem to crop up.
did you guys all restore to factory and jailbreak or did some of you wait out the long "beginning jailbreak process" and jailbreak?
And to those who did restore to factory, how did you get your data back on without your jailbreak being taken away?

It's not a complete white-out - its random and only a couple at a time
The springboard problem is terrible
In-fact, the springboard just restarted as I was typing this
It's become common practice for me to copy what I've written just in case the springboard restarts by itself again

So thats its here in this thread, i may have found a solution to the music not playing after the jailbreak issue. This at least worked for me this evening.
I had my music stored on the disc on my phone. I havent used the itunes match at any point. I had done a sync to my phone and had the songs and media on the phone prior to my jailbreak. It worked fine prior to the jb(while phone was bone stock). After the jb, the music library was there but wouldnt play. So before going off the deep end and starting over, i tried updating itunes to the latest 10.5.3 version. I then synced my phone again but did NOT sync the music. After that sync was complete, i did another sync with itunes but this time has the music sync and be placed on my phone. This re-sync to remove and then reinstall the music on the phone post jb fixed the issue-at least in my case.
So it may just be a case of removing songs and for some people, videos . . .. .and then putting the media back on the device.

I backed up then restored to factory using iTunes.
activated wifi when it was time to hit the greenpoison icon.
phone rebooted cydia was there.
restored from backup all data is back.
cydia works. Never had to do vpn toggle.
The other thread is more helpful. The how to jailbreak 4s thread.

Someone else posted a fix that worked for me. Try these steps listed below to fix the white icon issue;
- Open Cydia
- Press manage on the bottom row
- Press Setting on the top left
- Press Hacker then Press Done on top right
- Search for UIKit Tools
- Open UIKit Tools and press modify on top right
- Select Reinstall
- That's it. Your white icon should be gone! (if not try a respring but I didn't need to)
This worked for me when my mail icon turned white after updating IntelliscreenX, My3G, & Zephyr. Again I didn't discover this tip and I can't seem to find where I saw it. I want to thank them so I'll keep looking. Hopefully this worked for you.

My text ringtone messes up after I install tweaks from Cydia. It'll sound twice during an incoming text only when the message app is opened where I can see all my text threads and no where else. I'll need to restart my Springboard once or twice via SBSetting to clear it up. Also, my unlock slider would hiccup very slightly when I go to unlock it after my phone's been asleep for awhile. Not sure if that's Cydia app related though, maybe from IntelliscreenX?
I just figured it was a carrier issue with receiving the message due to coverage congestion or something.
radio static interference. Who knows.
But I don't have any of those apps you have downloaded on my device.
