    So I have Absinthe 2.0.1 and I've come to believe it failed to jailbreak my device.

    Using ipad 1 on iOS 5.1.1. It says it completed the jailbreak but I don't see the Cydia anywhere at all.

    Have you done a search for Cydia in Spotlight? Sometimes, you can't see the icon on the springboard, but a search will find it. Good luck.

    I think he's having an issue a lot of us had. I spent 2hrs and 4 different computers with 3 different OS's and found it required a iTunes factory iPad reset. I wonder if it has a problem with the 5.1.1 update being done OTA rather than through iTunes. I don't know but it finally worked for me.
