Thanks Europa, I kept wondering why it kept failing after 3 times. I'm glad I came on here and saw your post. (y)
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! It worked, thanks again for the tip, Europa. All seems smooth so far. (y)(y)
Cool! Glad to help. :)
i didn't do the erase thing................i just upgrade to 5.1.1......and now doing the JB, but it is taking AWHILE
It will take a while if your phone isn't empty to start with.

Fast and easy, as usual (in my experience) with Absinthe. Start to finish was about 10mins for me, I had updated to 5.1.1 last night but didn't do the erase. Back in businesss!

Computer issues here. Trying to do a clean restore to 5.1.1 and now I'm getting an iTunes error 14. Trying to trouble shoot it now. Hope it works!
Disable your antivirus, reboot, use a different USB cable (if you have one) and a different USB port (direct connection - no hub).

Restoring in iTunes and then running Absinthe again should fix this error:
Error detecting device lockdown error -5

Looks like the Cydia servers are getting pretty slammed right now. :cautious:

I guess I was lucky to get my iPad j/b in the first try. Although, I did do the restore content and settings the other day to see if it would fix the battery issue after I updated to 5.1.1.

I'm seeing lots of 500 internal server errors when trying to install Cydia apps - just retrying the install several times over has worked for 2 so far. Anyone else seeing these? I'm guessing these may just be due to servers being slammed today.

Yes, I saw this as well. It worked fine the second time I installed an app.

Yep, me too. Persistence pays off, but also adds to the load on the servers. So I've moved on to installing other packages, and when I come back around to the problem package it seems to work.

That's great! Do you know of any website with confirmed Cydia apps for 5.1 and 5.1.1?
