    well it seemed and worked smooth for me when I first jb my 4S. But when I try to install a tweak, package, etc. I'm getting internal server error or Hash Sum Mismatch at the end.. (while installing SBSettings) Maybe it could be sth. unrelated but can anyone inform me about that how can I solve that issue?
    Cydia is overwhelmed right now and cannot load packages. That is what those errors mean. Give it some time, then try again. You should be able to download your packages then.

    Updated my iPad 3 to 5.1.1 via the Settings app, backed up but did not do the erase jailbreak restore thing, just jailbroke it. Working great, no issues. It does seem like my battery is draining faster though, but I'll have to do some tests to make sure it's not just a fluke. Wish the battery widget for notification center showed how much power was being drained, much like the status in MyWi

    This is not the day to be browsing themes.

    Hopefully people can stick to the more important tweaks and let the servers have a break haha

    10 tries, 10 fails

    I'm not cut out for this jailbreaking stuff unfortunately. Back to stock I go.

    Don't give up!

    Sometimes it takes forever to jailbreak. Back on my old 4 I think it took me 24 tries to get one to stick.

    It's probably nothing you're doing wrong!

    Download Winterboard also if you haven't. I couldn't get anything to work until I downloaded Winterboard.

    a lot of people are having problems and so did I
    but what fixed it for me was how I initially restored.
    You have to restore (full restore) from itunes with the 5.1.1 ipsw file.

    Sync your backup, select the appropriate restore file (5.1.1) and begin the restore process. Afterward, activate your iphone 4s. And then start the jailbreak. I did it this way and it all worked first time.

    It's the restore. Don't wipe from the phone. USE ITUNES and restore from the 5.1.1 ipsw. Hope this helps everyone

    Guys..help me out here...first off...WTF is a ipsw file. Secondly...when you say "USE ITUNES and restor from 5.1.1 ipsw, where in ITUNES do you do that?

    Download Winzip and extract it.
    I did that but the black DOS window pops up and loads a bunch of stuff then disappears. I never get the actual JB program to open.

    Yeah but I need my phone. Maybe I'll come back to this at some other time. Thanks for the encouragement.

    It's the file itunes uses as a backup, if you are using a Mac you can hold down the option button while you hit restore in itunes and then manually select the backup file (ipsw). There's been a few linked here by others.

    If you're on a windows I think you can right click on restore but don't hold me to that i haven't owned one for years.

    Bear with me and I will post a link for a 5.1.1 ipsw (that is an IOS operating software file). Before I can, what device do you have.

    Then when you restore to it. Hold down shift whilst clicking on restore in itunes, then you can manully select it where ever you downloaded it to.

    After you have done that you need to click on the new Absinthe.exe file.

    Thanks a lot!! That worked! With giving it some try, in the 3rd time, it installed successfully! I think the reason of the try was the lovely server issues as the other friends also mentioned for my question.. Thanks to everyone too!

    You guys really all are geniouses. This worked like a charm. Spread the word for everyone with the "hmmm...something went wrong. please blow me" error message. This fixes it!

    I want to try the restore using the ipsw file for iphone 4s.

    Do I need to wipe first again?
    Also, if the JB works for me, can I do another restore to get my data and apps back from iTunes?

    Although I have to say.. I dont know if my Grandma would have known to jailbreak my phone with the ipsw file. She would have dropped dead before figuring that part out.

    Restoring will wipe everything, do a back up and then run the restore with the ipsw, then run the jailbreak and after than you can sync all your stuff back on.

    After you jailbreak, open iTunes, right click your phone and hit "Restore from Backup". This will restore your data but not the whole OS. You'll be fine then.

    Ok, cool. Thanks. One more thing though...how do I restore from that file? lol

    I have my phone plugged in and iTunes open (Windows PC)

    When I right click on my phone in iTunes (even using shift or ctrl) there is no way for me to browse to that file.
