try this one, http://www.rapidunlockers.com/ I have unlocked my phone on very very fast (about 6 hours total) and cheap, now i can update to any version without having to worry that my phone will be locked ever again. Only 9.99 for phone unlocks!

Hi, it seems to me it does not work AFTER the iOS 5.1 release:-(. I am not able to restore iPad 2 running on 5.0.1. with iTunes and that is (probably) why the Absinthe does not finish (VPN does not start even after manual switch from Settings). any ideas? THX Tom

I was able to get the Absinthe icon installed until toggling the VPN but does not reboot after a minute so no Cydia installed as of now. :(

Jailbreak works on my iPad 2, but the problem is: I cannot open my contacts! Pushing the icon makes the application start for like tenth of a second, then it crashes. Restarting the device did not help. Any idea?

I've tried Rinstalled BigBoss Icon Set from Cydia twice, and all icons are correct now. :-) DON't know if this solved the problem or not, but now it seems fine. ;-)
