    Cannot get phone to complete the jailbreak. Always stops at the waiting for process to complete.... I tried restoring it 2 times and also once while putting it in DFU mode, and still no luck. I wish I would have held off on donating until it actually worked for me....


    Edit: ended up getting to work in 3rd computer I tried

    when you restore your iPhone do you put your back up of your phone on it? Try doing it when your on the "set up your iPhone" menu. Also make sure you have the new version 2.01

    I've did my 4s this morning with the same problems. What actually worked for me was restoring with iTunes and not touching the phone but letting iTunes finish activating. So my phone was still on the multi language screen when i ran Absinthe and all went smooth. Later this afternoon did my gf's the same way without a hitch.

    use the latest version of Absinthe 2.0.1

    when you restore make sure you have the clean version of 5.1.1

    it should work like charm

    Try a different machine. Also restore it or erase all data before each try.

    Was hoping this would have worked for me but no dice.

    Waiting for reboot and error -5 can't connect to lockdown on 2.0.1. Guess I'll wait for 2.0.2.

    having problems too I'm guessing it's a temporary problem that will be fixed shortly just be patient. everybody rushes in the 1st day and it always causes problems.

    Try:
    A) Changing to the administrator account on Windows.

    B) On iPhone: Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Content and Settings. Then re-download a fresh version of Absinthe 2.0.1 (Official site or iClarified) and run it again and I think it should work.

    C) Change USB port

    The solution (for my clearly screwed up computer) was creating a new partition, installing Lion, updating it and then Absinthe worked.

    What in the heck is missing in my file system on the other partition is beyond me.
