    I'm tying to jailbreak my wife's iPhone 4S on software 5.1.1 using the absinthe jailbreak from green poison but every time I click to jail break it closes on me. Now we both use different username accounts on my mac would I be better off just using my user account on my Mac and then just re sync it with her user account? Thanks in advanced.

    P.S. Here is a pic of what pops up after it crashes.

    I had the same problem with my admin account. I login into another admin account and it works. Not sure why though.
