    Got iphone 4, on Mac Os 5.1.1 Jailbreak seems to be taking ages, an hour now and, only quarter progress….anyone guess why?

    Ugh, this jailbreak did a job on my 3gs. It installed all fine, then after I opened Cydia for first time and it restarted after finishing, Cydia along with all stock apps disappeared. Including settings, contacts, messages, etc. (they do not show up searching either so they were uninstalled somehow).. When I click on text messages I happen to receive I get errors about appleSMS or something, when I answer calls it answers but it locks on the slide screen. I was able to get cydia back via redsn0w jailbreak on top of it, but still I do not have any of those apps so my phone is basically useless. Any ideas what I can do to recover these apps?

  • BigDumpr

    Had to connect to different to usb port to perform the jailbreak but otherwise was simple and successful.

    3GS, iOS 5.1.1(9B206), WinXP

    Performed backup thru iTunes. Didn’t bother performing the factory restore. Logged in to Administrator account. Ran Absinthe from the desktop. 3GS wasn’t recognized so I connected to defferent usb port. Performed successful jailbreak. Loving it. Cheers!!

    I had my iPhone 4s (iOS 5.1.1) jailbroken, then I called at&t to get it unlocked. I got it unlocked, but lost my jailbreak…can I jailbreak it again and would it stay unlocked? How could I do both?—Thanks for the help

  • evan

    whenever i do it it says “device not detected” but it is because my Computer detects it and it charges. i recently restored my device due to errors could the restore have any effect?

    lol imagine how pissed apple was when they found out that jailbreaking was legal!

    Hello, I’m new to jailbreaking honestly. But now I’m learning thanks to this site. Now, I have a question. I have an iphone 3GS at ios 4.1 and I want to upgarde it to ios 5.1.1 and my Cydia says it is compatible with my SHSH to upgrade to ios5.1.1. After I preserve my baseband, should I still jailbreak it when I already have a jailbreaking tool in my iphone with compatible SHSH?
