    I'm trying to jailbreak my iPhone 4s with Absinthe. I am running 64-bit Windows 7.

    When I run Absinthe following the step-by-step instructions at Step-By-Step Guide to Jailbreak iPad 2 Using Absinthe For Windows [iOS 5.0.1 / iOS 5], the process starts, and makes it past the point where the phone reboots.

    Then, Absinthe reports that it is "Preparing jailbreak data." But after a few minutes, I get a Windows error message stating that Absinthe has stopped working and is being shut down.

    I tried 3-4 times with the same result. I've made sure Absinthe runs with administrative rights.

    I've restored my iPhone from a backup, but would like to jailbreak. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    1)Make sure Windows firewall is disabled as a service as well as any 3rd party security software.

    2)Try another USB port

    3)Latest version of iTunes 10.5.3 is installed but not running.

    4)Also try running XP compatibility mode.

    Thanks.

    I installed Absinthe on my deskto PC and it worked fine. Don't know what the difference was -- both machines are set up the same and have the very same software installed. But my 4S is jailbroken!
