    If so, try to restart or reset your iPad and try to open Cydia again. As this jailbreak is so new, a LOT of people are trying to get to Cydia to get their favorite tweaks and such. The servers are overloaded and sometimes you may have to keep trying before your iPad can connect. Hang in there ... it will slow down!

    Hi all,

    I wish to share with you a conflict that I have discovered between two Cydia packages: Netatalk and afc2add.

    Afc2add allows the connection through the USB cable between a PC and the iPad. Under Linux you need to use "ifuse" and under Windows there is the nice free program named iPhoneBrowser.

    The advantage into connecting to you iPad through the USB cable and the AFC services gives you a transfer speed of about 6MB/s (about 2-3 times faster than using FTP).

    Unfortunately I installed the package Netatalk and I discovered that this package conflicts with the AFC service and the nice USB connection works no longer.

    So keep in mind this conflict and you will save a nasty headache!

    Cheers to all!

    2) Put your iPad into DFU Mode and then do a shift/restore to iOS 5.1.1 (follow the tips in this link: TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS)

    3) Restore the iPad from new, NOT from the backup you made in step 1b

    4) Jailbreak the iPad (make sure you wait until it's done)

    5) Open Cydia to install your packages (it will close after it's done)

    6) Connect your iPad to iTunes and "restore from backup" (this will not mess with the jail break or the iOS - it'll just put back all your settings, contacts, apps, etc.). But, be sure to select the backup YOU made, as sometimes, iTunes creates a backup during the restore process. When I did this step, I got everything back on the iPad ... and it looked just like it did before I started

    7) Go to Cydia and start re-downloading all your tweaks. Just remember that the servers are hammered and if you are tyring to restore using a backup package, it'll probably keep erroring out. Just have patience.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the step-by-step, that sounds like it will do it.

    One frustration I ran into when I first saw the Absinthe page is that it only provides two sets of directions:

    How To Use Absinthe 2.0 (if you're unjailbroken):


    and

    How To Untether 5.1.1 (if you're already jailbroken):



    But nothing for what to do if you're already jailbroken, but on a version older than 5.1.1, and want to make sure you don't lose all your stuff. It sounds like your method addresses this third scenario, right?

    Yep, this'll do it for you: If you are already jail broken on an older iOS, upgrade/restore to stock iOS 5.1.1 (using the DFU Mode/shift to restore process). Then, once on stock iOS 5.1.1, run Absinthe. Then, restore from backup to get your iTunes apps and settings back and finally, head to Cydia to get all your jail break tweaks back.

    TBH - they are getting better and better in developing these JBing tools. This one was the easiest one yet (of course, IMNSHO, ).

    Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    Hey everyone! I just wanted to warn every one about this "tweak" that installs Siri on your iPad...DON'T DO IT!!! I had to COMPLETELY RESTORE and JAILBREAK my iPad 2!!! I got stuck at the Apple logo & it would NOT reboot! Luckily I could get into DFU mode to restore! EVERYONE is having issues with this! The instructions were released by jailbreakhow.net which has been a reliable source for JB info. The instructions however were released by absinthejailbreak . org...I am JUST NOW getting my iPad all set up AGAIN after getting it JB'd the other day!!!! AVOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    100% Agreed! And specifically Greenpois0n (developers of Absinthe) has always been the easiest tools of all them.
    This one was the easiest one yet (of course, IMNSHO, ).
    Well, technically, it's IDENTICAL in ease to the 5.0.1 Absinthe 1.0 JB.. ;-)

    May I ask why my post was edited f4780y? I didn't post anything "pirated" It is a Cydia tweak? apologies if it was something wrong but I thought it important to warn people.
