    new problem, now my mail icon is solid white after jail break
    That actually has happened to me with Cydia icon and Calculator icon.
    I narrowed it down to sbsettings issue when I respring. It happens randomly. I just reboot my 4S and them respring from sbsettings and the icons are back. This happened to me before on my tethered 5.0 jailbreak for iPhone 4.

    okay gotcha, i have been having the worst of luck with battery life issues i cant get more than 5 hrs on my iphone. ill charge 100% over night wake up to 80something% from stand by or idle i know i have battery life issues i just want my iphone to last me a full day like my other friends do. the reason for the jail break is so i can tether while at work...


    No, you can always update to the latest official firmware but you will lose your jailbreak. If you want to jailbreak it again on the firmware, you'll have to redo the jailbreak process when and if the firmware is jailbroken. Since that can take a while (we've been waiting for an iOS 5 jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 since the beginning of October), I'd advise you to only update to a new firmware (for example iOS 5.1 that will come out in a few weeks) if you really have to or if it's been jailbroken. Hope this clears things up!

    Techincally... it doesn't void your warranty or at least with Apple USA. The one time that Apple can deny a warranty claim, is if your phone cant be recovered due to JB. I have done a warranty swap while JB. I had a dead pixel. Since a dead pixel was not releated to JB, they swapped even though it was Jailbroken.
    This is true. They can't void your hardware warranty.

    I'm surprised no one else is posting, but here are MUCH BETTER AND MORE CLEAR instructions for fixing the problem from thebigboss.org:

    Note: for those having problems, these steps worked for me on my stubborn device:
    1) After the JB fails to do anything, reboot the iphone
    2) Close absinthe on your mac
    3) Rerun absinthe and it should detect the device and say that it noticed a jailbreak attempt failed and say it has recovered.
    4) Reboot the device again, and close absinthe again
    5) Rerun the jailbreak tool, it will rerun as it did in the first place.
    6) After its done and says to tap the jailbreak icon do not do that! Instead go to your device, load settings, and click the vpn setting to on. Wait. The device should pop up and error and then respring about 30 seconds after the error.
    7) If the device never resprings in step 6, repeat the steps above again until it works.

    I'm about to try them now...
    Thanks!!! This solved the error issue. Worked 1st try. Thanks again!

    Is there any issues with Jailbreaking with a Macbook but syncing with a PC afterwards?

    I've tried it on 2 different Macs, and after 5-20 minutes, it just crashes. Doesn't get past "Beginning Jailbreak" I've rebooted several times, and I've erased my Ipad 2, same thing.

    I have a MAC and downloaded the jailbreak file. I open it and a green folder opens then the absinthe file appears. I open it and it crashes every time? Not sure if it's me or something wrong with the file. I have jailbroke many of phones before so not sure what's up?? Any help?

    What it does for me is get stuck on "beginning jailbreak...."....then crashes at some point.

    My question is more regarding the need to restore before re-jail breaking. Should I restore the iPad as a new iPad running 5.0.1 before jail breaking?
    I don't think a restore is necessary unless you've had it jailbroken before. Sounds like you have. I've personally never had issues just updating and re-jailbreaking but I know some people do. I guess I'm saying that a restore isn't a bad idea.

    It will rule out potential problems.

    Im new to jailbreaking, backing up, tech stuff. I currently have a stock iPhone 16GB 3GS, I'm almost certain or at least would feel better backing up my phone before I jailbreak, only because it's an older version. My question to you is what are the details in backing my phone up? Is it the same as syncing to iTunes? Like I said Im new to this stuff, hahaha.
