    absinth is only for A5 devices (iPad 2 and Iphone 4S).

    You can use greenpoison or redsnow for you iPhone 4. I prefer redsnow, but both will get the job done

    You cant use just anything on any device or firmware version.
    What firmware is your iphone 4 on?

    I guess he meant Corona from the Chronic dev to make it untethered.

    Absinthe now has an untethered jailbreak for 5.1.1 on all devices except Apple TV3. I'm going with that. Will come back and post if I have problems.

    One thing that's unique about Absinthe is that it can run on Linux, not just Mac or Windows.
