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. ;-)
