Gretings!
Attempted to JB my neighbor's 4S running 5.1.1.
Tried Absinthe and got something like "device not supported", so tried latest redsn0w and got "service wouldn't start (3985)" error.
Tried both methods with phone as is and wiped.
Any thoughts?

How about a different computer? That's also one easy way to fix the issue. I have an iPhone 4, and have had no issues thankfully.

OK, didn't think of everything... :D

I'll try it on his.
Just odd that 3 family phones worked and friends did not.
