Is this tutorial compatible with the iPad1 ???

Yes, works fine for me (iPad1 64Gb 3G). It take about a hour to complete the procedure...

I did it, but cydia isn't working correctly, it crashes when I tap on it. I tried restoring the iPad but I am getting an error: "This device isn't elegibe for the requested build", I tried modifying the hosts list, but still not working… I don't know how to solve… I've read, that I can Re-restore to 5.1.1 on Dev-Team Blog (http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/31869383801/blob-o-riffic) but I don't know how. I need help please, thanks!

Hi, Beside using my Iphone as a HotSpot with MyWi to connect my computer I don't have an Internet conncetion. So when I will be Jailbreaking I won't have internet. Is there any way to JB my Iphone 4 Ios 5.1.1 using Absynthe 2.0.2? Thanks

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.

Not working for me, either on my iPad 3 CDMA. Tried with Absinthe 2.0, 2.01, 2.02 on MacBook Pro. Reset all content and settings. Upgraded Lion and iTunes to the latest versions. Tried from guest account on the computer. Over and over again. Consistently hangs on "waiting to reboot." Pretty frustrating because I've donated to the hackers who make these jailbreaks possible...

Note: finally got it to work by doing it on a Windows computer. Everything else was the same.

After trying more than 10 different ways and reformatting macbook(yes re-installing Lion) I realized there was a sync issue with iTunes 10.6.1. I went back to iTunes 10.5.3 and it worked on the first try. A lot of people are having all sorts of sync issues with iTunes 10.6.1. Just thought you should know. If your iTunes library has been updated to 10.6.1 you can't just downgrade to 10.5.3. That's why I needed to do clean install and obtain everything from backup. Enjoy!

Done on my IPad 3. No issues whatsoever. Just donated thru paypal "PLEASE DONATE GUYS". This is the only way we can thank them for having our devices jailbroken... :)

my iPad 3 completed the jailbreak with the tool, but as soon as you open up cydia, it flashes the "system files configuration" and reboots itself. i can't get into cydia. restoring my iPad now, because i can't run this tool again once cydia is installed
