    So I've followed the directions exactly.

    After backing up, and saving my SHSH Blobs, I opened Absinthe 2.0 and hit the jailbreak button. I waited for a few minutes and it told me this: "ERROR could not connect to lockdownd"

    I'm just wondering what lockdownd is.
    Should I just keep trying?

    Update: I downloaded the updated Absinthe 2.0.1 to see if that would work better.

    I'm not sure what this error is. But Absinthe 2.0.1 has been released with some minor bug fixes.

    Do you know how to restore with a custom IPSW file? As that seems to be fixing the problem. Give me a shout if your not sure or try the new version of Absinthe.

    Ok, there is an easy way for you to do this and that is to download the latest version of Redsnow and jailbreak that way. Here is a link for redsnow. I will walk you through it.


    Windows: https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-de...edirects=0&d=1

    Mac: https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-de...edirects=0&d=1

    Jailbreak with this and it will be tethered and once jailbroken we install an un-tether package from Cydia.

    Ok it's pretty easy from here. You will need to go into DFU mode a couple of times. Follow in the instructions and apply the tethered jailbreak.

    One you have applied the tethered jailbreak and Cydia is installed. Go into Cydia and search for Rocky Raccoon, this is the un-tether package.

    Check your phone re boots and now your phone shold be un-tethered.

    Just to be clear, when you are tethered jailbroken, you need to use Redsnow extras every time to boot your phone until you install Rocky Raccoon untethered package.

    Private message me if you get stuck.

    I was having problems too and kch50428 suggested me to do the following:

    "Got a 'new' ipsw to use for the restore here: Download 5.1.1 iOS Firwmare iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad [Direct Links] — Jailbreak 5.1.1 5.1, 5.0.1 iPhone 4S iPad 2 Untethered Jailbreak 5.1.1, 5.1, 5.0.1, 5.0 iPhone 4S / iPad 2 Untethered (http://jailbreakhow.net/download-5.1.1/)-- and in iTunes on mac - held 'option' button and clicked restore - navigated to the 'new' ipsw - activated/set up as new, ran the jailbreak fine."

    Worked perfectly.

    PS: If you are on Windows, in iTunes press SHIFT along with Restore so you can navigate to the 'new' IPSW.

    Anyone know how long it should take? I have a Verizon iPhone 4 and a Mac with lion. I don't have any error messages, but the progress bar on absinthe 2.0.1 has been in the same place for almost 15 minutes. Is this normal?

    You should of used Redsnow in this topic discussion. If Absinthe doesn't work after a while longer use this method here and follow the instructions for Redsn0w.

    Let me know how it goes.
