In that case buddy I would stay as you are because 5.1.1 hasn't been out that long and there isn't much in it that is different to 5.0.1.
Unless you really need 5.1.1 for a reason. I would stay as you are, which is what I'm doing with my iPhone 4.

Also, with the first release of Absinthe. There was a little bug which has been fixed now.
But yes you are right, it is probably the easiest jailbreak I have ever used to.
Battery issue's. Not really noticed much, but it does depend on how many tweaks you have installed. Plus Winterboard is a big battery drainer!!

I'm a little confused here on why there are so many problems. Is it just the 4S or the 4?I Just did this jailbreak and it was the easiest one ever. No DFU mode, no nothing, All the stock apps, music videos and settings came back and I did nothing other than upgrading to 5.1.1 before applying the JB.
Has anyone noticed an improvement in battery life since going to 5.1.1? I thought one of the fixes this version was to have improved some issue with battery life but not sure. I'll have to see if the new release makes a difference.

Absinthe 2.0 sucked, I've been Jailbreaking for 5 years and I've used each and every tool. DFU is like playtime to me and yet Absinthe totally F'ed up my iPhone. The first time I ran it there was no problem it ran fine and my Cydia icon was there. I ran it and it was preparing the file system and then after it closed all my icons that weren't inside folders were all gone. The cydia icon which was in a folder was gone too. I rebooted four times still no dice and since the settings app was one of the icons that was gone I had no way to reset the device. So I restored the phone yet again only instead of getting the 206 version 5.1.1 I got the 208 version 5.1.1 and guess what neither Redsnow or Absinthe could do anything with it. So restored my phone once again putting it into DFU and downloading the 206 version manually. Luckily Apple is still signing it so I did the Option + Restore and used Redsn0w this time and Voila no problemo. I'm not knockinig on the hardwork they all did anyone that knows me knows I'm a JB faithfull so I fully APPRECIATE the effort and made a donation. I'm just saying it was frustrating LOL

I followed all of the steps and my phone is still in the restore process (erasing all data) and has been for almost two hours. It isn't saying anything just the spinning circle. Should it be taking this long? And if not, how do I get it out? I didn't update to 5.1.1 first; is that the problem?? Starting to panic a bit!!

iClarified - Apple News and Tutorials go to Tutorials, iPhone, Basics and at the top is where can I download firmware if you look under iPhone 4 GSM there will be 2 5.1.1 and if you look thorugh the name you'll see one is 206 and the other is 208.

At what point did you erase all content. You don't have to do that.
What iDevice do you have?
I should be able to get you out the mess?

no. My phone has never been restored. it's a 4S on sprint 64gb. updated to 5.0.1. then jailbroken with absinthe.
specifically it was all the media that was deleted. the movies, music, ebooks and and audiobooks. It's happened three times. Deep down i think it's was some sort of Itunes glitch or issue. because the third time in happened i noticed that all the itunes (iphone specific) settings had been sort of reset. So it just starts syncing and whatever it did it removed everything. Now i always check when i plug it in to make sure the settings haven't changed. I've caught it once and just yanked the iphone out before it started deleting. Just to be safe i also made a single playlist with all 40gbs of my iphone music. So if it happens again i can just drag the one playlist rather then having to always pick and choose 40 or 50 gbs from my 100+gbs.
either way i think any action on my iphone that going to delete that much media should come with a warning. Or you should be able to set up permissions so it doesn't delete media no matter what.
