    Is anyone else getting this message after starting up Absinthe 2.0.1?

    I'm unjailbroken on an iPhone 4 with 5.1.1

    What do I do?

    Restore, setup as new, JB and then restore from backup.

    you need to be careful with the itunes 5.1.1 ios, because apple released the new build for iPhone 4 this afternoon.

    The original public build of iOS 5.1.1 is labeled build 9B206, while this new build is labeled 9B208 (direct download).


    not sure will effect the jailbreak with the new build or not, just make sure to use the 9B206.

    Good catch.
    If you have the old build I think Apple still signs it.
    Restore to that instead.
    Apple is trolling us. :D

    I'm guessing absinthe will jailbreak 9b208 after a little tweak so it will recogizne 9b208 as compatible, as I doubt apple closed the loophole that fast.

    Wouldn't I lose the JB if I restored again from the backup?

    make sure you download a legitimate copy of firmware 5.1.1 9B206 then in iTunes restore with that same firmware. also make sure the firmware is for the correct device you're using i.e, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, etc.

    AT&T Unlocked Gone After 5.1.1

    I got AT&T to "Factory" Unlock my Iphone 4 and everything was working perfect on 5.1 baseband 04.12.01. I got the Congratulations your phone has been unlocked message through itunes after deactivating etc.

    Try alot of carriers(sims) and worked perfectly!

    I heard of the new 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak, so I fresh installed 5.1.1 Via iTunes and now the phone is locked again. It just wont unlock, seems like im at square one again. I put in the same sim i used to unlocked the phone and its saying Sim not supported by the carrier or contact your carrier.

    Im guessing AT&T didnt factory unlock the phone & its just a temporary unlock until you upgrade. Or Did apple fix a bug that denys access to an unlocked AT&T iphone?

    Wow Apple is really cracking down. Anyone else run into this horrible problem? I am soooooooo mad!

    ?

    what do u mean invinz? How did it get fixxed on its own?

    How did you get the Congratulations your phone is unlocked message after upgrading to 5.1.1?

    How long did it take for Itunes to recognize that your phone is factory unlocked?

    You were having the same problem after upgrading to 5.1.1? How did your phone get unlocked again?

    Thanks

    I had the same issue. Around 1am Eastern I started jail breaking my phone. I did the Factory restore of 5.1.1 and was able to jailbreak. Then when synching form a restored backup I got an error. I tried to start over again around 2am Eastern and then the jailbreak stopped working.

    It looks like Apple started pushing 9B208 after 2am. I downloaded 9B206 from iClarified and did an option restore to 206 and the jailbreak worked.

    I did lose my SMS, photos and all of my settings. When I did the manual backup before doing the 5.1.1 firmware it looks like iTunes saved a bad backup that I cannot restore from. :-(

    I just remembered my Time Machine Backup. I'm going to try restoring the ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup to the latest Time Machine backup. Then look in iTunes preferences at my last iPhone backup. Losing a couple of days of photos and SMS messages is better than losing them all. :(
