Share your experience with Absinthe in the comments section below…


  • Camera roll will be empty if the jailbreak is incomplete. Rerun the app once to fix, and then another time to complete jb.
  • If the Absinthe webclip shows “Error establishing a database connection”, please go to Settings, turn on VPN and wait instead.
  • The VPN connection will give an error. This is normal. A reboot should happen a few moments after the error.
  • Just reboot and redo the jailbreak if you have problems.
  • When jailbreaking: Do not have a passcode set. Do not have your own VPN setup (Absinthe needs to setup its own).
  • If Absinthe crashes, reboot your DEVICE and try again.
  • Toggle VPN only AFTER Absinthe says it’s done, or it will not work. VPN SHOULD error and then reboot soon. If it does not, rerun Absinthe!
