    If you change your hosts file back to apple servers the normal itunes restore will work. I've downloaded the 5.1.1 update twice today and it took less than 5 minutes. (To change hosts you can just run Tiny Umbrella and uncheck the "Set hosts to Cydia on exit" box in the advanced settings.)

    I upgraded my iPad 2 to 5.1.1 in anticipation of the jailbreak, now I try to jailbreak this morning and it doesn't work, let me explain doesn't work...
    1) Reset everything
    2) Ran absinthe as administrator
    3) Absinthe recognizes my device (iPad 2 Wfi/3G 64GB model A1396)
    4) Absinthe runs its course, iPad says it has done everything, but at the end of it all I have no Cydia or anything else that may look like it's jailbroken

    Many are reporting exact issue with iPad 2 today. You'll have to wait for an Absinthe update when the Devs are done their conference. Thus happened last time with one particular iDevice on Absinthe. Some are saying a full restore thru iTunes before Jailbreaking solved it for them - and others say that didn't help either.

    I believe if you bought the iPad 2 after the iPad 3 came out it is the new iPad 2 and it would of came default with iOS 5.1

    install Linpack from the app store (free) and as soon as you run it, you'll see your version listed on the screen.

    I heard a rumor that there is an update to the jailbreak, to fix the empty sources folders in cydia? Anyone else heard that? Not that it really pertains to me at this point cuz I can't even get the darn jailbreak to fully download, still getting the lockdown error
