niihimself May 25, 2012, 6:38 pm

can i unlock with untrasn0w after jailbreak?

jose May 26, 2012, 1:22 am

probably you will have to upgrade with a custom ipsw in order not to upgrade baseband and lose possibility to unlock, be careful!

maybe you should wait for the how-to detailed explaination to be sure.

JRock_98 May 25, 2012, 11:04 pm

ERROR: Could not connect to lockdownd. aborting.

This doesn’t work on windows 7 for iPhone 4S

tatossi_2812 May 25, 2012, 11:20 pm

crash on win7 ip4 also.:(

JRock_98 May 25, 2012, 11:38 pm

FIXED!!! Solution:

1-Backup your iPhone using iTunes (“YourName” iPhone)
2-Perform a Clean Restore of 5.1.1 using Itunes.
a:Since you performed a full backup restore everything to factory setting wiping everything from the phone.
b:When the restore is complete itunes will ask you if you want to restore from backup. RESTORE AS NEW IPHONE (“TEST” Iphone) This will prevent you getting errors from Absinthe.

3-Close Itunes and open the Absinthe file which will extract the files into a separate folder. (Matrix looking window will appear…wait until its done) Once complete it will auto close.

4-Search for the Absinthe folder-win-2.0 folder

5-Run Absinthe.exe as ADMIN (NOTE: make sure the compatibility is set to Windows XP service pack 3 – check in the properties menu)

6-make sure your still plugged in and press the Jailbreak button.

7-Once complete, close the application and open itunes again to restore from your initial back up.
a: TO be clear, once itunes recognizes your TEST iphone from the left panel, RIGHT CLICK and press RESTORE FROM BACKUP.
b: A window will appear with a drop down and select your good backup (“YourName” Iphone). All your stuff should be back and enjoy your Jailbroken iphone.

hey do u know why when i run absinthe 2.0.1 a black screen cums up like DOS and just run some programs

tatossi_2812 May 26, 2012, 11:20 am

it’s the program extracting data. you will see a new folder created. the jailbreak tool is in that folder

humptybump May 28, 2012, 4:00 am

Jrock ROCKS!

Thanks for the “fix”. I was stuck but running Absinthe on a clean iOS and then restoring my original backup worked perfectly (and fast)!

donald_varghese June 10, 2012, 5:18 pm

hello bro
what is meant by ” clean restore”
is it like this – itune ( shift + restore) with 5.1.1 firmware……?????

Regarding your step 5, Absinthe 2.0.4 from Greenpoison had options for all windows versions except windows XP on the properties tab. What do I do now? I’m trying to unlock my iPhone 4 with fresh upgrade to ios 5.1.1

tatossi_2812 May 25, 2012, 11:52 pm

mckinneycm May 26, 2012, 1:56 am

For Windows 7, run it in XP compatibility mode.

Your iOS version MUST be 5.1.1.

Restart May 28, 2012, 4:45 am

Try restarting your computer first, sometimes it won’t recognise your phone, also if your on windows 7, make sure your running it with xp compatibility.

Tunechi4S June 2, 2012, 5:44 pm

I have a 4S with iOS 5.1.1 and also installed the newest Absinthe Software on my Windows 7 computer. I have tried everything I can think of, clearing my phone out and resetting it, running computer in Safe Mode, Unistalling and reinstalling Absinthe 3 times and for the life of me Absinthe will not even notcie my phone what so ever!!!! Its killing me! Someone please help!

Abc123sloved June 2, 2012, 7:03 pm

(sloved) If anyone was having any problem with the app not picking up your iPhone .
All you have to do is DOWLOAD the latest ITUNES exe for your computer aka PC. And let it pick up iyout iphone in iTunes then .
Make sure you have service pack 2 or higher and that ypu RUN the jailbreak software In ADMIN !!!!
AND your problem will be fixed that’s how I got my iPhone too pick up on Absinthe !!
If you have any other problems please make sure your compatible to jailbreak your device !!

I can’t absinthe-win-2.0.4 jailbreak iphone 4s. Please help me?

yuvp July 7, 2012, 4:19 pm

problem: “error: could not connect to lockdownd. aborting.”
solution: You need to restore iPhone/iPad while in DFU mode and set as new iPhone/iPad

Step One
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone/iPad to your computer.

Step Two
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

Step Three
After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

The iPhone screen will remain black.

Now that the device is in DFU mode just restore it in iTunes, set as new iPhone/iPad and jailbreak
