    went through the whole process, got the absinthe icon, but servers are being hammered so I can't finish it off. went smoothly so far though.

    man this update was frustrating. i usually listen to my podcasts on my way to work, and i don't finish some of them but if i try listening to it the next day at the same spot, it won't happen. most of the time it restarts to 0:00. this never happened on ios4.

    also, my music doesn't sync up properly, i'll add an album and a few restarts of itunes/iphone will finally show up in my iphone

    Why don't you just set a location reminder for when you arrive at your house?

    So I clicked 'jailbreak' on the software and it's barely moved since I clicked it. Been here for 15-20 minutes and I see no improvement where the loading bar is.

    Is it supposed to be this slow?

    Could you please elaborate? I have no idea what you mean. I downloaded Absinthe from a third party source and opened the software. It detected my phone and I clicked 'jailbreak'. But taking forever right in the start and nothing happening on my phone, as in I am texting on it and all at the same time and the loading bar hasn't moved.

    once the bar is complete on your laptop, open up your iphone (slide to unlock)

    it'll tell you to open te absinthe app, DON'T do that. just leave it there.

    open settings, go to vpn, and turn to "on" you may get "communication error" a lot. don't worry, just keep turning it to on. eventually your phone will "crash" again don't worry, your phone will reboot and voila, cydia will be on one of your homescreens

    I think you have to keep the ipod app "open" for it to remember. If you close it, it resets back to the beginning.

    But that's the thing. The bar won't finish on my laptop. How long roughly does it take? Maybe I am not being patient enough, but it hasn't been moving and I stopped the program and tried it again. Should I just leave it then and wait?

    PS: I am still able to use my phone to text and all while the bar is going on my laptop. Is that normal?

    Thanks!

    just quit it and start again. it'll say something like"you tried to attempt this jailbreak and something went wrong" blah blah, it will fix it, then just run it again.

    then just do what i said in my previous post.

    and i wouldn't touch your phone at all during the process while it's connected to your laptop running absinthe.

    Yea it's been doing that for a while. Now it's closing Absinthe unexpectedly. That error keeps popping up. But then a message showed a pass code will cause in a failure, so I just removed the password and trying it again. Is the bar thing on the computer supposed to take a long time?

    it shouldn't...the computer process for me literally took 30 seconds. it was doing the vpn on/off process for hours that took forever.

    Yea I dont know what's wrong it just doesn't seem to be working. It gets stuck on 'this may take a while..please wait' and the bar doesn't move. And eventually the program just shuts on it's own giving me an error. Don't know what the hell to do.
