  1. hi, i'm having a problem. When doing the jailbreak I get stuccoed when it says "waiting process to complete" and then my iPad 1,1 restores itself and no jailbreak was done. I tried using Absinthe on a MacBook Air and on an iMac.
    Do you know what I am doing wrong or what can be the solution?

  2. ive made every step, i did the jailbreak and it run ok, i install mywi 5, installation ok, it connects everything, but on the tethering bar, appears download 0 upload 0, and on the windows connections appears like connected to the iphone but with no internet connection, even if i still having connection on the iphone, i mean 3g connection, what should i do? is there anyway to go back to 5.0.1?

  3. I did everything but when the windows opens to press the jailbreak button I cannot press it period. What is the problem?
