    Default Jailbreak iPhone 4 5.1.1 via mountain lion

    From the start, I can't get absinthe 2.0.1 to run on my comp. I have a 14 month old MacBook pro running mountain lion. After downloading the software, I get the "this software is from an unapproved source, open anyway?" popup window, to which I click yes. The greenpois0n logo flashes in my icon dock but goes away. Any ideas on how to get te software running?

    I tried to JB using my NetBook running windows xp and had no luck... Said it couldn't connect to download, for whatever reason.


    If anyone has any grand ideas on how to fix this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Anyone have a solution for OSX Mountain Lion yet? Absinthe 2.0.4 will not open...<br />
    <br />
    ---------- Edit ---------<br />
    I figured it out.<br />
    Step 1: Download Absinthe 2.0.4<br />
    <br />
    Step 2: Right click on the Absinthe icon and select “Show Package Contents”.<br />
    <br />
    Step 3: Navigate to the Contents/MacOS folder and right click on Absinthe 10.6 and select Open With…Terminal.<br />
    <br />
    Step 4: This will invoke the GUI interface of Absinthe, and you can now proceed with the jailbreak as normal<br />
    <br />
    That’s all there is to it! Special thanks to Idhanta Kakkar for the tip.

    I tried using the above mentioned steps and I'm confused with
    Step 3: Navigate to the Contents/MacOS folder and right click on Absinthe 10.6 and select Open With…Terminal.<br />

    Opening with "Terminal" is this an app I need to download in order to open Absinthe 10.6, if so what app do I need to download.

    Default Jailbreak iPhone 4 5.1.1 via mountain lion

    Cydiahelp.com, download redsnow and it will work no problem on Mountain Lion. Just run Redsnow and follow the prompts its that easy.

    Default Didn't Work

    At the end of the jailbreak process it says it wouldn't start.

    I would do a clean Install of 5.1.1 and then do the jailbreak
