Just thought I'd start a thread. Please post anything you A5 Jailbreaks have observed.

First one I read on another thread was the blank Mail icon.

for people with a database error.

goto settings, and turn 'on' your VPN setting. it will crash the phone, and you will have cydia.

and as far as the icon white thing goes. just load cydia, and it will respring you automaticlly and you will have icons.

Waiting to reboot --

I'm stuck at the Waiting to reboot stage. Been there for about 5 minutes... Is this because the website is down?

Thx

keeps giving me a no database error with the absinthe icon. turned on vpn (was in the first page of settings) and it keeps saying "a configuration error occurred."

any ideas?

Bite SMS seems to be incompatible at the moment. I'm sure the devs will fix it quickly.
Phone icon went white on mine. Not sure if it broke anything else. I uninstalled til its fixed.

----------

Photos icon goes white with intelliscreenx install. Seems to all work though.

Open Absinthe app just gives the usual error. turn on VPN and it errors but does not crash and reboot... is it just the servers?

OK not sure what happened here but was playing with intelliscreenx i clicked on the data to turn it on and off and it went to from e to 3g and my signal dropped and came back up and shortly after it went to no signal, no matter what i did i cannot get it back. I do have a verizon 4s and i don't have 3g/edge settings, so maybe thats what messed it up.

Anyone tried BiteSMS, iBlacklist, Infinifolder? I want all these but if they don't work with 5.0.1 then I don't wanna risk it

For those with the error when opening the Absynthe icon.

When you go to VPN and click it, exit out of settings by the home key while it's connecting. Wait a few moments, and it should crash your phone. Took me twice, but it worked just fine. On reboot that icon will be gone and Cydia will be in it's place.

Sucks man. Wish I could be of more help, but it went pretty flawless for me (minus having to do the VPN option twice).

Hope it works out for you. On Twitter they said if it is being weird just exit out, and re-run the jailbreak.

Shouldn't make a difference, but just to say it. When I jailbroke I did have it connected via my WiFi network (and not cellular). I don't know if that makes much, if any, difference when it tries to connect to the Absynthe app.

Tried that, unsuccessful. Now also when I open Absinthe, I do not get an error or anything. Just a white screen.

Thanks for the tip! It actually worked on the first time for me. Right when I clicked the home button and exited "Settings" it popped up connection error, I hit "ok" then clicked the icon again. Phone crashed and rebooted showing Cydia. :)
