Fix Errors With Absinthe iPhone 4S, iPad 2 Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak [Common Mistakes Explained]

Today has been a very hectic, but enjoyable day for the Jailbreaking community! This is because the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak has been released to the public in the form of Absinthe. While it is great that iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users can finally Jailbreak their A5 iOS device Untethered, like most new Jailbreaking solutions, there are always errors that come along with initial releases of Jailbreaking tools. As such, a lot of people have not been able to Jailbreak their iPhone 4S or iPad 2 due to errors, server overloads and numerous other reasons.

If you have been experiencing errors Jailbreaking your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 Untethered with Absinthe then this may be due to some common mistakes that Planetbeing has recently tweeted about. You see, if you currently have a passcode set on your iPhone 4S/iPad 2 or even have a VPN currently setup, at this time it will cause errors when Jailbreaking your A5 iOS device.

Thus, if you made one of these common mistakes mentioned by Planetbeing simply take action and disable your passcode/vpn setup and try Jailbreaking your A5 iOS device again with Absinthe. If all else fails Planetbeing mentions that you should restart your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 and the Jailbreaking process again (restoring your iOS device would not hurt either).

Let us know if this advice has helped you Jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 Untethered with Absinthe in the comments section below…

    I’m trying to jb my iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 using the second version of absinthe.  Both the first and second version are stalling out on the “beginning jailbreak, this may take a while….”  the progress bar goes up about 10% then stops.  Not sure why this keeps happening.  Suggestions?

  • たつたつ

    Check wether you have some vpn settings or not. If you have, delete it and enable vpn for “jailbreak’. After that, respring will start and get a cydia.

  • Nick

    just wanted to say me too.
    i have waited an hour, restarted the phone and reinstalled absinthe and have now been waiting 30 mins. the program wont go behind other windows either. like safari is partially covered by absinthe and wont go in front of it…

  • jackie

    mine too, and i tried rebooting my iPad 2, it still won’t work. but my iPhone 4s worked perfectly, it’s just my ipad2…why!?!?!

  • Samarthbhandari

  • KashNY

    i cannot open Absinthe on my mac. When i try, a message pops up saying the program has unexpectedly quit, and if i try to relaunch, it does not work either. I’ve tried both 1.2.1 and 1.2.2, neither work. I am on a Macbook Version 10.5.8. I would very much appreciate some help on this matter. Thank You.

  • Marco Sandtoes11

    for all of you having problems with no reboot after vpn error, try this:

    download the updated version of absinthe
    restore your ipad so that it completely takes away the jailbreak that you just tried.
    jailbreak your ipad again using the new version of absinthe.
    run the app. you will not need to go to the vpn setting anymore. 

    worked for me.
    hope this helps

  • mike

    has anyone found a solution to this? I’ve been pretty patient but it never gets past the “this may take a while” beginning 10% or so

  • AtiZo

    Well, with that attitude no wonder you don’t have a better job so you can afford one. :)

  • nick

    My 4S never shows the “restore in progress” and absinthe is stuck on the initial “begininning jailbreak” for a long time… anyone else facing this?

  • Lnd30499

    After I erase all settings and contents, I still get this error on my Iphone 4s FATAL: Assertion Failed AMDeviceValidatePairing ==095

    help please my absinthe keeps saiying its has stop working just when its about to start ;/ its on windows

  • Guest

    got mine to get past the 10%, all you have to do is close the Absinthe program, and restart it, it will say something about jailbreak failed, and repairing.

    then Absinthe will ask you to disconnect and reconnect the usb, and try jailbreaking again, the jailbreak should go past the 10% this time

  • Guest

    use Absinethe V0.2 Windows GUI jailbreak tool

  • Guest

    Close Absinthe even though its stuck at 10%, wait a couple of seconds and then re-open Absinthe. it will detect that your last jailbreak attempt failed and try to repair it.

    Then Absinthe will ask you to unplug and replug the USB, it should go past the 10%, it happened to me and thats how I got the jailbreak to work

    Hope this helps..

I have to unplug the iPad to unfreeze it. Then when I plug it again Absinthe says something like “it seems  you tried to jailbreak it before and had some problems…we will try to fix it”. Then it fizexs and ask me to unplug and plug it again…and then it can restart all the jailbreak process…but I did it 5 times with no good results so far. Any idea???

    My theory is that if you updated to 5.0.1 over the cloud, then you have to restore your phone and download the 5.0.1 on to your itunes

  • Ronnsynth

    Okay, so I successfully jailbroke my iphone 4S iOS 5.0.1 with absinthe. It was working fine until I noticed that I can’t transfer songs into my iphone from itunes on my sync’d computer.

    does it have something to do with the fact that I jb’d the device from a different computer?

  • Dazza

    I was the same also could not connect to App store
    Had to do full restore lost some apps n stuff but needed the space lol

    Help we jail broke one iPhone 4s but are stuck trying to jail brake the other. I reset the phone back to factory setting turned off the passcode backed up my data.

  • Kussface

    i have tried 4 different computers trying to jailbreak my 4s but none of them works. the absinthe stops working. i dont have password nor vpn setup… anyone having this issue whom already resolved it? i need help plz 

  • dyords

    well i had the same problems with my iPad 2 when it stalled at around 10%. i just updated my IOS to 5.0.1 and iTunes restored it from backup. reading through all the blogs, one suggested to restore to factory setting. when i did it, it finally worked. 

    1. make sure to backup your device first
    2. restore to factory settings
    3. no passcode

    good luck.

  • doriangray

    This is how I fixed it after numerous “stuck @ 10%” failures:
    1. Downloaded fresh copy of Absinthe
    2. It asked to run repair for failed jb
    3. Asked to disconnect the phone and reconnect, instead I X-ed Absinthe and ran it again
    4. JailBreak worked.
    5. Coincidence? Maybe, but it worked!

  • Guest

    Easy Fix –> Go to properties [Windows 7],then compatibility ,Check Run this program in compability mode to Windows XP Service Pack 3. then Set Run as Administrator. then ok . have a try ;D

  • LDD


    Everything works fine up until the point that I have to tap the ‘Jailbreak’ icon. There is no such icon anywhere on any home screen. I can see the Absinthe icon no problem but no Jailbreak. I even checked all my folders. any ideas?

    Apps would not load after using Absinthe.. I tried to restore using iTunes.. and now I’m stuck in recovery mode.. it says “Iphone could not be restored” Unknown Error (21).. anyone have a solution.. or do I have to take this to Apple Store bah!?

  • Scooter25

    I keep getting the same response when trying to jailbreak my 4S.  It says the jailbreak process failed, then absinthe does the recovery and asks me to unplug my device and plug back in and restart the jailbreak process.  Once I plug it back in, I get the jailbreak failed message again.  Don’t know what to do????

  • Kevin Meighen-Berger

    Not working for me. 
    Whenever I open the Absinthe app on my iPad 2 I have to push the “Jailbreak” button. (Did not have to do so on my iPhone 4s). It then tells me that it “Cannot open Absinthe” and “The URL can’t be shown”. If I go to Settings manually and try to enable VPN for Jailbreak it fails as well, saying “A configuration error occurred”. It does NOT reboot by itself, and even if I do so, the best I got was the loading bar going to about 40% (with the apple logo and stuff), then stopping and opening my non-jailbroken iPad. Frustrated as I was since my iphone worked perfectly, I decided to restore my iPad to factory settings and try again, still didn’t work, and I can’t get rid of Absinthe. Any help? If nothing else, how can I get rid of Absinthe?

  • Applyutm

    hi, I jailbroke my ipad2, my ios version was 5.0.1 and did it with absinthe, after while i tried to factory restore it. I tried to go on DFU mode, but i got an error number 21, and now i just have a usb and itune picture on my screen. I did pushed sleep/awake and home button together but i still have this problem, my ipad 2 only shows itune and usb picture. please help me guys. tq

  • Omikay

    For the error restore. If it seems to get stuck at one point. I have to use blackrain to jumpstart the iPhone to get iTunes to complete the restore.

    My problem with this absinthe is that I launch the program on my Mac and I can’t hit the jailbreak button absinthe won’t recognize my devices.

  • Wolfapi

    Please try absinthe, after install the latestd iTines 10.5.3.
    and read the absinthe instructions regarding password and vpn.

  • James

    totally useless on ipad 2 ggggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • Tariq Madani®

    Simple! D/L Ubuntu and try it. It’s FREE and SMOOTH ;)

  • Bear Treu

    Actually, you should install a linux distro.  The OS is better than windows, and the absinthe runs like butter.

  • Bear Treu

    Why would you buy a mac when you could save hundreds on a faster prettier linux distro?

  • Mizi

    I encountered this problem minutes ago, I sorta fixed it. 
    what i did was ;
    1. Did a restore on iTunes. (don’t do a backup just yet)
    2. Run Absinthe.

    When it finished rebooting your device after the Absinthe did a restore, you’d be placed on a lock screen, i notices it sleeps if you don’t do anything, i decided to play with the ‘slide to unlock’ but don’t slide to unlock it just slide half way until the Absinthe finishes sending payload data. click on Absinthe, i did not tap the jailbreak button and i waited a minute, it reboots and cydia is installed.

    mine is iPad 2 GSM running on iOS 5.0.1

  • heartiness

    I do have the same exactly problem but with iphone4s. Nothing is happening and it doesnt matter how long i wait or install and reinstall everything its always the same story and Mizi’s suggestion didnt help as well. What can I say – crap.

  • Samkp1904

    Hello All,… PEN.S here.. LOL 

    If Absinthe is not detecting your device and you are sure you have the 4S with the correct version. 

    Go to services in Windows, restart or start the ” Apple mobile device” service and tada.. 

    Hope this help!

  • Yynotme

  • cherrygrocery

    At first, it didn’t work for me too. What I did was:

    1. Remove passcode!
    2. Deleted Absinthe icon from iPhone screen
    3. Unplugged phone from Windows PC
    4. Launched Absinthe in PC
    5. Plugged in iPhone
    6. Did the jailbreak steps again

    Then it worked. Phone booted on its own & Cydia app was there already.

    Hope this helps. :)

  • Feel_me2ky

     I had the same problem until i figured out what i did wrong. Restore (*not update) your ipad. However, do not restore from backup after your ipad is reloaded, rather set up as a new ipad and run Absinthe. all you will be required to do is open the Absinthe app after its loaded and it won’t ask you to set up your VPN or click jailbreak.

  • Pingback: Problem With Pendrive()

  • MesopotamiaN

     i faced the same problem and what you need to do is to

    1 –  delete the absinthe software completely and re-extract it again on your desktop (thats in case you downloaded it as ZIP or RAR file on windows)..because when you extract it you will find a new folder that contains some files which causes this problem.

    2- or you can try it on another PC and thats is the best way and it should be a Fast PC.

    but im facing new problem , asking me to run a VPN instead of closing it and i tried to remove it and restart and reinstall it but it still the same…

    I have jailbroken my IPhone 4S.  After pressing Cydia icon, most of my icons have disappeared.  Now I can’t even access “Settings.”  Music is gone, etc.  What’s up?

Nothing. Tried having iPhone off when performing jb. Nothing works!!! Please help!!! If you have an idea please email me @

    I used the reboot option from SB Settings and afterwards my untethered jailbreak with Absinthe looked as if a tethered jailbroken device was rebooted. I can’t restore it at all because I don’t have that option on Absinthe, only “Jailbreak.” Please help!

    it should go eventually but idk exactly wats happening. With mine it says that for about 5 minutes then it says loading basic jb files, then it just either fails or tells me it cant connect to the lockdown.

    I have IOS 7.1 running on Ipad 2 and i turned my passcode set off and my passcode off and it still says ERROR:Device has a passcode set! If a pascode is set the jailbreak procedure will most likey fail. Unplug device, Go to settings and DISABLE THE PASSCODE, then plug it back in
