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

sorry folks i didnt realize that Absinthe was just for A5 devices, i have used Redsnow and i am currently jailbroken but i'm having some issues so i thought i would restore it and start from scratch, again thanks for the information.

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.
