    Damn i have literally only just done this around 5 mins ago using 2.0

    *edit* Whilst im'm at PC going to restore to new ipad, rejailbreak and then restore from my backup...just to be 100% sure no bugs are present. Best to cover it just in case.

    My guess is that this is their answer to the jailbreak not working for some folks. I had to restore via iTunes before it would work for me.

    ok I just re-jailbroke it seemed real sluggish when its usually snappy after first jailbreaking...

    it now is a lot smoother and how you would expect with 2.0.1

    Every one of my Malware and anti-virus programs started flashing when I started installing from the "setup.exe" file download in this link you provided. First it tried installing toolbars, then wanted to make itself the home page, then a "download manager" program, then a warning of MALWARE.

    Be warned.

    EDIT: Here are direct links to the greenpois0n downloads:

    2.0 did not work for me, 2.01 did.

    To the people who were having problems with 2.0, did 2.0.1 work for you without doing a clean restore? I tried this morning for about an hour and a half and it never worked.

    I could not get 2.0 working till i did the suggested restore pointing to the downloaded 5.1.1 for my iPad 3 wifi . It worked on the first try but i had tried probably 10 times before that with the erase all settings before which obviously had failed every time.

    I have not used 2.0.1 nor have i seen the need to do it all over again since i believe this is updated software for the installer not the actual jailbreak.

    I never tried 2.0 because 2.0.1 came out before I attempted the JB (I was waiting for my devices to charge). I performed the JB with 2.0.1 and it worked flawlessly on both my iPad 3 and iPhone. No restoring needed. I just plugged my iOS devices in, backed them up in iTunes, then opened Absinthe and clicked Jailbreak. So easy.

    How do I go about removing the jailbreak from Absinthe 2.0?

    Do I just click restore on itunes then jailbreak again using 2.0.1?

    It finally worked for me last night, but I did have to do a clean restore. I wish I didn't have to, but I am jailbroken now on my new iPad!

    I just did the backup and erase all content. Now when I launch Asbinthe, it doesn't recognize my iPad and the jailbreak button is not lightened.

    Although, iTunes and iPhoto is recognizing everything.
