    No. That's something wrong with a springboard tweak you have installed and nothing to do with the jailbreak.
    And please post questions in the main section. This is a tutorial, and not even the one you used...

    KK, the Cable stayed on and attached and the process was active for over 10hrs (per my last response). I tried iPad resetting / restoring, and I tried iTunes resetting / restoring. Now I will wait to see if anyone else have any answers.

    I tried in XP, then W7, then vista and nothing. at the end I decided to wipe clean my ipad back to factory settings and to connect to itunes with a brand new name (no backup restore) like if it was new from the shop.
    THAT DID THE TRICK!! the whole process took only 5 minutes end to end (I suppose because there were no data in the ipad)

    good luck to everyone.
    Thanks man.. You help a lot . I tried like 5 or 6 times but it keeps on "absinthe.exe has stopped working". Tried on 3 different laptops, but no use.. So, i did like what you wrote. Restore with no backup and it completed about 20 minutes. But now I'm kind of having problems with my iPad keep on restarting by itself, and I have to click "exit save mode" every time it happens.. Still trying to solve it..

    Question How Long is "A While" (Nervous)

    I am trying my first Jailbreak on iPad 2 64GB 3G. Have about 27GB free on the ipad when I did a backup earlier. Using absinthe 0.3 downloaded tonight. It has been on "Beginning Jailbreak" for over 1 hour. My question is how long is a while when it says this may take a while? When do I decide there is a problem? Getting late and I have to get up in the morning and I NEED my iPad. HA! why did I start this tonight? Because I am a truck driver and had internet tonight is why.

    Hoping for a quick answer so I will know if I need to restore my iPad before bed. Any help?

    This is straight from the first post of this thread:

This jailbreak utilises a vulnerability in the Backup and Restore process. Therefore in order to complete the jailbreak Absinthe will perform a backup and restore of your iPad's data. This raises a couple of important issues...

    If you are feeling up to it, the best way to proceed is to backup your iPad (on iCloud or iTunes), use iTunes to restore a fresh install of 5.0.1 (make sure you read the fist part of this preparation to know whether you can do this or not!) and then jailbreak. Once the JB is done in a few minutes you can then restore your device backup and all your apps and settings will be put back as they should be!
    Seeing that you have 27GB left on your 64GB iPad the best thing to do would be to backup your iPad

    Restore to stock 5.0.1 (make sure apple is still signing 5.0.1)

    Then jailbreak using Absinthe and finally restore from your backup

    I did come to that conclusion. I checked task manager and there were no CPU cycles being used by Absinthe so I closed then restored from IOS 5.1 and Jailbroke it in minutes. Hooray!! It is restoring now all my apps etc.

    Now if someone can tell me where the directory is in Windows 7 that Absinthe stuck 10 Gigs on my hard drive I will be grateful. Lol
