    So i've tried a few times now to jailbreak my AT&T 4S iPhone on a Windows 7 PC. Each time Absithe gets stuck at "Begining jailbreak, this may take awhile" and doesn't seem like it'll move past it.

    I've left my phone for around 30-45 minutes with no luck. I have also tried to unblock the program and run as admin and under XP service pack 3 compatiblility. Any other thoughts or suggestions? I'd like to try and avoid a restore...

    what size phone do you have? the jb uses the backup method, so if you have a lot of gigs...its going to take a lot of time.

    Ah, thanks for the heads up! yeah I have a 32, that is pretty much full. If that disclaimer was in the instructions for the JB, I missed it! Thanks so much! I'll just let it run.

    Yeah it takes quite a while. I have a 64 with about 3GB free and it took a while to break free.

    I gotta ask the OP... Is there a reason you didn't use your Macbook Pro to do the jailbreak? It says in your sig you have one. Do you like to punish yourself by using Windoze?

    How long do you think it will/should take?
