I solve the problem of "The attached device is not activated. You need to activate it before it can be use with Absinthe". by using Redsn0w 0.9.10b8, Absinthe 2.0 and Rocky Racoon 5.1.1. I have Iphone 3GS , 6.15.00 . 1/ download fireware 5.1.1 (9B206) 2/ use itune to update your iphone to this firm ware 3/ jailbreak with Redsnow (So it will help to solve the error message of activation ) 4/ Run Absinthe 2.0 to make a jailbreak 5/ Install Rocky Racoon 5.1.1. 6/ Install Ultrasnow fix 5.1.1 7/ Install Ultrasnow Done, I got my iphone Update to 5.1.1 with untethered jailbreak

same here on ipad 3, can anyone help?
jaywigley - May 25, 2012 at 2:14pm
Me too--three attempts and three failures. 4S already at 5.1.1 before trying.

Hi, I have the same issue. The iPhone 4s just has issues but the iPad 2 worked after initial issues. I also erased all content on the phone still have the same issues.
Tom - May 25, 2012 at 2:49pm
Same here. No go iPhone 4 VZW 5.1.1
Jaywigley - May 25, 2012 at 4:39pm
I was able to make it work after three failures by restoring the 5.1.1 factory fresh via iTunes, then doing the JB. It looked very different on the iPhone screen and worked perfectly after restoring the software via iTunes.

Absinthe 2.0 will not work on 10.8, it only works on 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7

I have the tethered JB with redsn0w, can I do this JB without to restore my iphone 4 first?
Paul - May 25, 2012 at 2:03pm
Restore first.
jdmcelica - May 25, 2012 at 5:35pm

My iPad 3 didn't do anything on "Waiting for reboot" so I rebooted it, now I get Error Lockdown -5 :(
simon - May 25, 2012 at 2:39pm
same hier
Freak - May 25, 2012 at 4:54pm
Absinth gets stuck at "waiting for reboot, don't unplug you device yet" The iPad reboots, but nothing happens afterwards (I do not get "restore in progress" on my iPad screen as I saw in a youtube video) iPad 3 iOS 5.1.1
Freak - May 25, 2012 at 10:00pm
Yessss got it! Tried multiple times on a Mac (iPad 3 on 5.1.1) but no sign of 'restore in progress' halfway. Tried it again on a Windows 7 pc and it worked like a charm! (<90seconds). I recommend you to give that a try if you're having the same problems! Gonna get me some tweaks now bubye..
Freak - May 25, 2012 at 10:01pm
did a restore first by the way (completely empty device) good luck y'all
S - May 25, 2012 at 1:23pm
Do I need to upgrade to 5.1.1 first or can I just initiate and it'll upgrade for me as well?
Brian - May 25, 2012 at 1:29pm
Upgrade first.
