Title speaks for itself. So many people are reporting errors with absinthe. Should I wait till they correct any bugs before jail breaking my iPad 2 or iP4S or just go for it now. And Will somebody that has JB 5.0.1 already state how they JB successfully.

Edit: jailbroken

Those that have no issues have no reason to post complaints, questions, or problems. If you want to jailbreak, then do it. The worst thing that can happen is you have to restore your device and try again.

Do it now. Way more people are not having problems. I had zero issues personally. Even if it doesn't work just restore.

How will you know if you'll have an issue until you try it.

I have little issues here and there. Random crashes. Seems like its almost always Safari that does it and it just crashes to the home screen. Its not enough to make me get rid of it since the benefits outweigh the problems. Occasionally on a respring from SBsettings it will hang and get stuck and you have to do a hard reset. Pretty much its the same issues with all my devices Ipad2, Ip4s, Ip4(wife) and kiddo's iPod Touch.

Done my ipad2 the day absinthe came out and have zero issues.

I suggest you synce and backup your device then go for it. As stated worse case is you need to restore. But ill be surprised if you have any issues.
