Thanks to f4780y for excellent tutorials, etc, and the 5.0.1 JB team for developing this hard won jailbreak...
Hoping someone can help me with a problem completing the final step... I can get through the Absinthe JB process as far as tapping the Absinthe homescreen icon and seeing the greenpoison screen displayed. Then it just sits there... forever. I checked the VPN, and it was set to OFF. So I turned it ON. I get an iPad popup error message displayed saying “VPN Connection A configuration error occurred.” When I OK the message, the popup goes away but the VPN remains off. I’ve tried rebooting the iPad, turning on Airplane Mode and manually switching on wifi. But to no avail. I think I must be missing something simple… but I cant spot it or find help amongst the forum or other general googling.
I’m getting very close to resetting the iPad back to factory 5.0.1, JBing it and then resetting up all my apps, etc again, but I’d prefer not to if I can help it.
Any advice much appreciated. Thanks.
