Same issue...after restoring from my original backup...I then tried the jailbreak again...it appeared that it was working...after it rebooted my phone it says "wating for process to finish" or something like that...but my phone wasn't doing anything at all..after a few minutes...i then get the "hmmm...something went wrong error" Such a pain in my ***!!

All I can say now. Completley start again, right back from unzipping the Absinth file, maybe it didn't unzip properly.
Let me know if that works.

Question about actually applying 5.1.1. I'm currently on a JB'd iPhone4 running 5.0.1.
When I do the wipe/restore settings...am I supposed to manually upgrade it to 5.1.1 before or after that step? Or does Absinthe take care of upgrading whatever OS you are currently on and taking you to 5.1.1 itself?

Does Absinthe need the Internet to finish up the process because on my MacBook my airport card took a crap so I use my iPod touch which is jail broken to USB tether the Internet on it with PDAnet. And absinthe doesn't allow two idevices to be plugged in at once so I have to unplug my iPod touch and do it without Internet. Is that the problem?

I erased all data and content and I get this message.
"Recovery completed. If you want to retry jailbreaking, unplug your device and plug it back in"
Then I tried restore from back and JB again and now I get
"Hmm… something seems to have gone wrong… trying to recover"

I'm preparing to do the process. I'm currently JBroken on 5.0.1 and haven't yet done the upgrade to stock 5.1.1. I have backed up on itunes and backed up my JB apps on Cydia using APT backup. I am guessing I need to erase all content from my device now, go into iTunes and upgrade to 5.1.1, then JB using Absinthe. Right? I don't want to have any issues like I've seen here. I tried doing it just now and I got kicked into recovery mode and I think my issue was I didn't erase all content and setting first. Used Tiny Umbrella to kick out of recovery, now I'm ready to try this again...4s

I am having the same problem with my Verizon 64 GB iPhone 4S. I followed all the steps in the readme file. When that didn't work I tried restoring from backup and jailbreaking again. Still failed.... I don't know what to do. Might just wait and see if an update comes out.....
