    Hello all...
    I have read threads on the subject and still I can't figure out what the heck I am doing wrong?

    I turned off the passcode....
    What is a vpn and how do i turn it off?

    My issue is when i plug usb>computer>activate absinthe> the jailbreak button does not highlight...
    I am running a 4s with 5.0.1....

    Any help would be greatly appr'd...
    Sorry for the noob thread on the subject.....

    Are you on Windows or Mac?
    Does the iPhone show in iTunes?
    Have you tried a different cable?
    A different USB port?

    If the Jailbreak button isn't highlighting in Absinthe, try a different computer. I had the exact same problem and it didn't get solved until I tried a different computer. I started a thread on this issue a few weeks ago when the JB was first released.

    Have you tried the CLI version of Absinthe?

    I'm not sure how to use it myself since I never needed to but I'm sure you can google it.

    check to make sure account you login with to your mac is an admin account.
    system preferences -> users and groups -> current user should say if its admin or not.

    you might want to create another user account with administrator privileges, login to it and try jailbreak from it.

    Okay maybe a dumb question. When Absinthe is open and iPhone is connected does it say anything regarding the connected iPhone?
