    damn i feel like the dumbest noob on this site. I just figuered out how to fix it...

    (1) Go in to Network Settings (2) Disable data roaming and voice roaming (3) Re-enable whatever settings you prefer
    problem solved for me lol. hope this helps someone else out who has a brain fart.

    I have one concern, if we jailbreak and then restore to wipe everything and start a new device (so no restore from a back up) are we sure there is nothing that jailbreak has changed that we cant modify ? Like really deep files in the system ? I don't like to apply something and not knowing what exactly this thing do... Maybe this is something we should ask to the developers

    Ive tried twice so far at two different times to jailbreak. After 15 minutes, its still hung up at the beginning of the jailbreak prompt. The directions indicate that Absinthe should be ticking along, but mine literally travels to maybe 9% and just parks there.

    AT&T iPhone 4GS, 32 black (though not much concern for color when jailbreaking i imagine).

    Anyone else having a similar problem? Is it because Greenpois0n is down?

    A lot of people are having this issue. I had this issue with my Ipad 2. What I finally tried was, go to settings, general, and reset on my Ipad 2, and chose to "Erase ALL Content and Settings", then from my Ipad 2, I restored from my Ipad 2 Icloud backup. I then waiting for all apps to sync through Icloud, then I reconnected to my Mac, opened Absinthe, and it worked.

    I am truly gutless when it comes to jail breaking. My question is, has this impacted the battery life? I do know that it depends on the apps installed, just a general conclusion.

    The no icon thing has been an issue for a while. A simple respring should fix it.

    It can take a while from what I understand. The more stuff you have on your device I guess the longer it can take. Just make sure you see a file mover message before you do anything further.

    when you have access to cydia and get into it and use it you can disconnect the ipad from pc. command line doesnt say that the process is done.

    has anyone noticed that sound is only coming from one of the speakers from the bottom of their phone? not a major problem, i havn't tried earbuds yet so don't know if it affects them as well.

    There is only one speaker. The other is a microphone goose.

    That's the way it's always been. Jailbroken or not. One is your speaker one is the mic. This has been the case with every iPhone ever released.

    I may try the command line jailbreak again; but the directions on cydiahelp are garbage; no clue when to turn the VPN on since the command line really never stops; very confusing; just hoping for a simple tool like mac to be released soon

    it is really very simple. just turn on vpn at step 7 read the comments ppl leave below you dont even have to type those commands just copy and paste to cmd. you'll be done in 12 minutes... once you have the cydia icon and you tap on it and it asks you to choose your profile, this is the moment you can close the command line even if its not finished and disconnect your ipad/iphone... i used to reload OSs on my blackberries and android phones and root them, this is nothing compared to that it really is that simple...
