    You PHYSICALLY connected the devices to your computer via the USB cable right?

    There may be a warning screen instructing you to go into iTunes and disable the encryption password. Until I did this, the jailbreak button was dimmed out.

    Also disable any email accounts that require a pass lock, disable pass lock, and turn on VPN.

    How do I disable the encryption in iTunes?

    I do not have a lock screen password set on the iPad nor do I remember ever enabling backup encryption in iTunes.

    After upgrading to 5.0.1 encryption is checked in iTunes and the checkbox cannot be disabled.

    Thanks,
    --SirMick

    Got it.

    For all you folks who cannot get Absinthe to detect your iDevice, MAKE SURE you've updated your iTunes to whatever the newest version is.
    Took me about 5 hours to realize that. lolol -________-

    Any updates?

    I have done all of the same steps and cannot get the tool to recognize my 4S or iPad2 - both of which are on 5.0.1

    What type of computer are you doing it on?
    I was trying it on my iMac running 10.6.8 and it didn't work, but i fired up my 08' MBP also running 10.6.8 and it does work. I have heard that this problem may be specific to iMacs.

    Solved ;) You only need to start your mac in safe mode
    I has the same issue....
    mi iPad version is 5.0.1, snow leopard in 10.6.8...

    if Absinthe doesn´t recognize the iPad2 or iphone 4S
    turn off your Mac (imac, macbook pro...)
    and after chimes press shift for a moment....to enter your mac in safe mode
    and voilá...this works...;)

    I Hope happens the same in your case and u can solved as well as me....

    ;)
