How To: Fix “Error Establishing A Database Connection” When Using Absinthe Jailbreak Tool
Absinthe is the jailbreak tool for untethered jailbreaking the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 on iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1. It was only released a few moments ago, and already people are having trouble with installing it. It is currently only available for Mac OS X, but users who have been trying to install Absinthe app have been getting an ‘Error Establishing A Database Connection’ error. This is probably because of too many people using the tool at the moment.
@Planetbeing has just tweeted a solution. To get rid of the error, just go into Settings>General>Network and Turn on VPN on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2. This will give you an error and your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 should reboot. Once the iPhone 4S or iPad 2 has rebooted, launch the Absinthe app again, and it should work this time and reboot again. After the reboot, your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 should be jailbroken and the Absinthe app will be replaced by the Cydia app.
That’s it! Enjoy your jailbroken iPhone 4S and iPad 2!
