    Can someone write the whole process down step by step? Ive tried everything so far with the instructions from this site and the other someone posted and I cant jailbreak it. I too have the problem after VPN ... phone doesnt reboot. Very frustrating. I must be missing a step or something, i dont know.

    a few people have said in this thread that they restored their device and did the steps in the ops post and it worked.

    Adding custom com.apply.ipsec.plist to backup
    Restoring...

    Please advise.

    After 6+ attempts, I'm still trying. This is crazy! How long does it take for the backup to be created after entering " cinject.exe -j"? Should I have install on the phone before that point, because that's what I did?

    My Iphone 4s went great. 1,2,3 done. My ipad2 ran into the file too large. I had to wipe the reset the ipad, but instead of restoring in Itunes I setup it up as a brand new ipad2. Then ran it again, 1,2,3 done. worked great. I think once you have the 1266 file too large error this is the only way to get it to work. You will have to install all your apps again, but it's work it. good luck all.

    Yeah, this is just too much. Just ried for the eighth time and still nothing. Definitely waiting until the 1-click Absinthe is out. This is crazy. I'm assuming it's going to be a few days before it is out, too. Based on the tweet Pod2G put on Twitter that he was going skiing this weekend. :/

    I kept getting the same thing until I restored the phone.

    I assume everything i did was right which is weird i usually encounter some problems. under general settings below accessibility and above reset are you suppose to have a profile that reads jailbreak?

    YAY! So, I downloaded Absinthe for Windows, but it keeps having an unexpected error halfway through and has to close. Would there be any reason why?

    EDIT: I tried to use Absinthe on my laptop, instead of desktop, and it worked flawlessly. I am now a proud owner of a jailbroken iPhone 4S! Cydia, here I come!

    the jailbreak is success, but now i get white facetime icon... ideas?
    That's a common issue. Just respring your device via SBSettings and it should fix it. Not reboot, but respring.

    Guys, if you're having issues with the VPN, try resetting all your network settings. If that still doesn't work, you'll probably need to do a full software restore and THEN jailbreak again. Not sure what's causing the issue but resetting network settings seems to fix it for some. For those it's not working for, a full restore seems to work.

    Well, some of us aren't so lucky I guess.

    I tried both Greenpois0n & Redsn0w and neither of them are working.

    On Redsn0w, I keep getting error messages after error messages. Tried rebooting the iPhone a couple of times, & even changed ports... All resulted in nothing. I can't keep unplugging & replugging my iPhone 4S, as it will wear down the battery.

    On Absinthe, I got as far as the bar 1/2 way across the screen saying Preparing to Jailbreak, yet, I have a VPN selector now & the Absinthe app on the phone. I click it, it says "Absinthe is now setting things up, please stand-by..." which remains for over 15 minutes with no change.

    I try on my laptop, & every time I try, I get the "absinthe.exe has stopped working/Close program" pop-up.

    I even rebooted the iPhone 4S and everything, still nothing.

    -----------------------------------------------

    UPDATE:
    After restoring the network settings Ally mentioned, it finally took the Redsn0w, & that gave me the Cydia & Jailbreak. FINALLY! I have jailbroken every iPhone I have ever used, & root every Android I have ever used... this was easy once restoring the network settings... Thanks Ally!

    However, when I go to try to install apps from Cydia, the search results are non-existent & others that are recommended say that I need to add more repos bc the one needed wasn't found, when I checked & they were. The app I went for was TheBigBoss repo, & it was installed.

    This is the same exact thing that's happening to me! Screw this jailbreak crap I'm over it

    Well to those having the repo problems I had, after rebooting my iPhone I found the repos were added & loaded.

    Now, for some reason, when I go to open Safari or App Store, both look to load, then they close out & send me back out to the Springboard (Home Screen).

    Any ideas what I'm doing wrong, or is this just a glitch? I read somewhere that missing icons was a glitch, but I didn't see anything about non-functioning apps.

    you really didn't have to do anything besides click the jailbreak button?

    How many gigs is your iPhone? and does it have a lot of media on your device?
    How long was your wait time?
