i've jailbreak my iphone 4s Sprint with Absinthe and then Gevey to unlock and use it with my carrier....everything seems to be working fine except the Vibrate does not work. Can some suggest if there is a tweak or if it is a hardware issue??

Everything works fine except VIBRATE does not work after jailbreak What do you think? should I restore the phone?

I went through the steps for my 3gs and ueaptdd 06.15.00, Cydia installed fine but I lost my stock apps. No safari, apps store, etc. All I have is Videos, Weateher, Reminderd, Newstand, Settings, Youtube,Stocks, Utils, and Cydia. Any ideas what went wrong and if anything I can do from here! Thanks

lol this case doesn't add much bulk at all to be honest. if you're looikng to comment on a case thats ugly and adds bulk check out pretty much any OtterBox case video. Those cases are HUGE. and yes, i've heard of invisible shields (i even have a video for it) but they don't protect against falls/drops, just scratches

Worked for my unlocked 4S 64gb, although some icons have been turning completely white, randomly, maybe changes from one icon to another after installing or updating an app. White icons could be settings button now, later mail or itunes or music or combination of some, and up to 3 icons at once, all in the iphone's first screen. Still, phone is working normally though. Just weird.

Just open up cydia and iwipe cache! Install it and confirm! Then icon will appear on the screen, everytime your icon turns white, tap the iwipe cache icon or reinstall and your icon will be fix!

Just open up cydia and search iwipe cache and install that!

Absinthe stopped near the end at the "waiting for reboot", but the iphone seems to be working already. but having reception problems. keeps jumping to "no service" and back to one or two signal bars. would re-jailbreaking fix the problem?

Your iPhone has to be activated to jailbreak using absinthe. Does anyone know a way around this issue?

i had the same issue with absinthe but i tried with snowbreeze instead and in there it gives you the option of activating. here's a link: hope this helped!

Snowbreeze does not support 4s. Anyone found a solution for 4s yet.

Hasta ahora he JB'd un 3GS y un 4S. En ambos casos, que una copia de seguridad luego se actualiza a 5.1.1 a continuación, aplicar la absenta a JB. Con el 3GS no me borrar todas las configuraciones y los datos tal como se aconseja primero y el JB tomó aproximadamente 13 horas para completar la totalidad y no se reinicie al final (un reinicio manual hizo el truco). El 4S se despejó primero y el JB tomó unos 5 minutos mac entonces yo me devolvió la unidad de negocio y todo estaba bien, con una excepción. La App Store ahora me dice que tiene 45 actualizaciones de espera! No hay pérdida de aplicaciones! Espero que esto ayude. So far I have JB'd a 3GS and a 4S. In both cases I backed up then updated to 5.1.1 then applied absinthe to JB. With the 3GS I did not clear all settings and data first as advised and the JB took approximately 13 hours to complete fully and failed to reboot at the end (a manual reboot did the trick). The 4S was cleared first and the JB took about 5 minutes mac then I restored my BU and all was OK with one exception. The App Store now tells me I have 45 updates waiting! No loss of Apps! I hope this helps.

Hazle un update via itunes o wi-fi y luego dale un jb. No perderas nada.
Luis - May 30, 2012 at 2:08am
Miento, en mi caso no perdi nada ya que mi 4s no estaba jb de principio. Es muy probable que te lo deje como nuevo y si perderas todo. Haz un backup primero. Luego actualiza, jb y restaura.

JB'd my 3GS last night. It took 12 hours but was successful apart from having to manually reboot at the end. Everything worked OK but before doing the restore I loaded Apsync and Installous from Haculous repository and SB Settings from Big Boss (who can manage without these?). This is a must if you have any Apptrakr apps otherwise you may loose them from iTunes.

add this to cydia install 5.1.1 fixer then install ultrasn0w... That will fix the unlock for 5.1.1... As for iMessage and mms and FaceTime and all those issues do NOT hacktivate ur phone just do that custom preserve throught redsnow and when prompted for iTunes put in AT
