Hello, i got the Ipad 3 jailbroken with Absinthe. Two Days ago noticed that FaceTime and Message icons disappeared. They are not listed in settings and when I search with spotlight nothing's found. Any suggestions as I cannot do a restore cause apple stoped signing 5.1.1 and don't have blobs saved as I bought it 10 days ago?

After going through the complete jdibrake procedure as instructed Cydia has appeared on my iPad 2 wifi but when you press Cydia nothing happens? I repeated the process
aditya86 - August 9, 2012 at 9:57am
it's succesfully done jailbreaking with ipad 1, but when i try to install ipa, it always said "invalid ipa" using both ifunbox and installous. The cydia always unable to load (couldn't connect to the server). Any solution?

I have an iPad 3 (GSM)...although Cydia appears and works fine using absinthe-win-2.0.4...i am unable to install Installous 5...i keep getting error has mismatch. Has anyone else had this or knows how to resolve this?
konquistador - September 26, 2012 at 6:34pm
Hi, i am getting the same error while downloading installous 5, its says Hash Error Mismatch. Did you find a solution yet?

Tested with absinthe 2.0.4 on iPad 2,2 running IOS 5.1.1 ended every time with Hmm something went wron, trying to recover. I found the solution here: If you force the iPad into DFU mode, do a Shift+Restore in itunes, and load IOS 5.1.1 from nothing then it works

First, backup your device with iTunes. Then on the iPad, go to settings, reset, erase all data and settings Try jailbreak again I had an equivalent issue with my 12 out of 13,8 gb iPad wifi (very long first step ! Then error during the second) After resetting, JB in less than a minute, flawless. Then you restore from backup.

you´re the man!!! It just work fine!!! thz...!!!
Atom - June 21, 2012 at 3:39am
I found on my iPad 1 the same error and it worked after I did a "Reset Network Settings".
Leo - May 26, 2012 at 3:31pm
Worked flawlessly with my iPad 3 (WiFi). - Downloaded the 5.1.1 firmware for iPad 3 WiFi - Restored with iTunes (Shift + Click on Restore) - Executed Absinthe 2.0.1 - Jailbreaked successfully
Kunal - May 26, 2012 at 1:56pm
Does not work for my iPad 2 (GSM), when I press jailbreak after launching absintheit stops responding after a while on the pc. Tried it 3-4 times with the same message. Any help?

Oolyctus - May 26, 2012 at 5:47pm

Jailbreak ongoing on iPad 2,1 iOS 5.1.1 First try after backup - error on step 5,2 Second try after cleaning precedent jailbreak files - error on step 5,2 Third try after erasing data and config on iPad - SUCCESS starting Cydia (while starting iTunes then force closing it BIGFAIL) ending with only four apps, youtube, video, todo, ... but not settings ! Restoring iPad Do not be too eager, be patient !
Oolyctus - May 26, 2012 at 10:15am
Well, after a few other mistakes, not being patient enough, I've got a full functionning iPad 2,1 running iOS 5.1.1 jailbroken. Thx to the whole Jailbreak scene ! Please do not crack apps !

iPad 3 global..."Recovery completed. If you want to retry jailbreaking, unplug your device and plug it back in." I have tried different compatibility modes on my win 7 platform, ran as admin, and still get the same message. Anyone else getting this?
Karim - May 25, 2012 at 4:15pm

Same for me. Ipad 2, tried for several times but no luck. After i tried to restore again (not update), it work like a charm. Thanks to everyone...
Ricardo - May 25, 2012 at 4:08pm
Worked fine for me, in an iPad 3 WiFi. For some reason the "Music" app icon turned into a white square, though...
shojus - May 25, 2012 at 10:26pm
On all of my iPad jailbreaks I have seen multiple icons change to a blank icon...? It's just part of the jailbreak and if you respring you might see that it fixes that icon but then a different icon may go blank...? Not sure what the cause is but it does not affect the ipad in any way... Hope this helps ya?
Nemanja - May 25, 2012 at 3:21pm
Ipad3 global, After the restart it says something went wrong and try again. and I noticed that you need to learn something to boot to the apple does it for me
Jeremy - May 25, 2012 at 3:07pm

Staffsant - May 25, 2012 at 2:56pm

DanSto - May 25, 2012 at 2:17pm
... doesnt work for me.... cydia doesnt show up on spring board after jb (i have reset the entire ipad 3). It just says that I can try the jb agin, and that something went wrong. Too bad - i waited almostt since 3 months for now
Karim - May 25, 2012 at 3:14pm
You're not alone :( me too
shojus - May 25, 2012 at 10:31pm
I just went out and bought a Brand New iPad 3 w/ Verizon LTE (64gb) and it worked flawlessly! You might wanna do another restore to 5.1.1 and let absinthe do the rest... Just be patient and you will get your iPad jailbroken! :) Good Luck!
