Troubleshooting Absinthe 2.0!
If the server is down and you get an Error establishing a database connection message then tap the Settings icon on your springboard and turn on VPN.
You will get a configuration error; however, after about a minute your device will reboot with Cydia on the Springboard!
First of all be patient and trust that it is working, particularly on the last stage! If you have lots of data on your device it WILL take a long time at each stage. DO NOT disconnect the iPhone from your PC until you see Cydia on your springboard (unless things have gone wrong of course).
If you get to the end and launching “Absinthe” does nothing, open Settings and turn ON the VPN setting which has been added to your device. Make sure you don’t disconnect the iPhone yet! It should reboot and Cydia will then be visible.
If this does not work, disconnect and start again. Absinthe will let you know it needs to recover the process. Let it do this. Then disconnect again and run the jailbreak again! But if your iPhone has lots of data on it, consider doing a clean restore as laid out in the preparation section this time!
If Absinthe crashes on OSX, first make sure you are running the jailbreak as an Administrator of the system. It seems as though folks have also had success by enabling the root user on OSX. To enable root, try the following:
- Open “System Preferences” and choose “Users & Groups”
- Click the padlock and authenticate to unlock the settings
- Choose “Login Options”
- Click “Join” (or “Edit”)
- Click “Open Directory Utility”
- Click the padlock and authenticate to unlock the settings (if required)
- From the “Edit” menu, choose “Enable Root User”
- Provide a password for the root user.
If Absinthe crashes on Windows, again, make sure you are running as an Administrator account.
Windows7 and Vista users should set the compatibility properties for the Absinthe executable by right clicking on the EXE file, choosing “properties”, switching to the Compatibility tab, and selecting “Windows XP (Service Pack 2)” and “Run this program as an administrator”.
The following screen shows what the properties look like for Windows7 users:
