    my ipad has a passcode set that can't be disabled and the jb app warns about this causing failures and doesn't let you proceed from what i can tell. i think the only way i can disable my passcode is to do a restore first before connecting to my companies exchange server which enforces the passcode. so....looks like no jb for me at this point.

    can't say that i care too much at this point. there are definitely pros to jb'ing, but keeping up with jb apps/hacks/etc is time consuming and i've sort of lost interest in that game.

    Servers are getting hammered, I can't connect to the servers.

    I'm stuck at "Almost done - just unlock screen....."

    I JB'd my phone easily by enabling VPN but for some reason, I cannot get it done on the iPad. Whenever I enable VPN, I get an error but it doesn't auto-reboot and finish like the phone did.

    Gone through everything now 2x, second time with passcode disabled.

    This is on an ipad2.

    Still just get a blank white screen after tapping the absinthe app icon.

    VPN trick doesn't work. Just get an error. No reboot, no JB, no nothing thus far.

    Keep closing/opening the app.

    It's basically trying to make a connection to the server.

    like others...

    stuck on the white page. i will try again later but this could take a day given the pent up demand for this.

    and please leave a donation to the team. this was difficult and worth it to all of us who use it.

    Given the problems and the fact that I have yet to get the site to load once, I think I'm going to back off and try jbing in the middle of the night. Did upgrade, though! Strangely, Atomic loads my blogger stats page better now. Not an advantage to upgrading that I was expecting.

    Worked first time for me - took about 10 minutes from start to finish and I didn't need to manually toggle the VPN :D

    Installed all the cydia stuff I had before and so far everything's working perfectly!

    Stuck at the white screen after opening the app. I've opened and closed a few times now with no luck. Guess I'll just keep trying as I'm sure their servers are getting hammered. I can't even get to the official site now

    I'm stuck at the white screen when I open the jb app. Should I just wait until another time to try it?

    I got the white screen too when I opened the app. I just enabled VPN in settings, the Ipad2 rebooted and jailbreak was completed.
