EDIT: This was supposed to be funny, a joke... but most are not actually reading it, lol... humor fail!

Ok, so I'm new to this whole technology thing, but bare with me... maybe you can help me figure out where I went wrong...

I have been thinking about trying the iPad for a while now, as I'm quite intrigued about how everyone's talking about this magic tablet... Then I head about this jailbreaking thing and I was sold.

So I got my new iPad with one purpose in mind: jailbreak.

I did some research online and found that new absinthe thing... I almost turned back at this point, but hey it's worth a shot, right?

iPad - check
Absinthe - check
Jailbreak - fail.

I don't know what I did wrong... I swear I stood outside that jail for hours drinking that horrible green stuff, yelling every magical command at this iPad thingy that I could think of, and my brother is STILL in jail! Magic my ass...

This is all very frustrating... I promised him that I had finally found a way to get him out. Now, not only did I NOT get my brother out of jail, not only did I smash my new iPad when it turned into a green death-fairy about 3/4 through the bottle, but I've also grown a taste for hard-drugs in liquid form!

I wish I had listened to Apple and never bothered with this whole Jailbreak thing in the first place... *sad face*

Well lets try to solve your problem before you leave tomorrow.

Try storing the iPad to factory settings by downloading iOS 5.1.1 and installing it.

If that works, retry the jailbreak.


Question, which version of Absinthe were you using to perform the JB? 2.0? 2.0.1? Or the new 2.0.2??? I've had great luck with 2.0.1

Make sure you have the newest absinthe 2.0.1 it was released soon after the initial release. I was having the same problems until 2.0.1 and then it was all good.
