The jailbreak process contains a backup/ restore within iTunes to install software which is totally new.. So it is better not to touch your iPad (as adviced) while Absinthe is working..<br>
After completing the process Absitne icon will be added to your springboard, open it.. Your device will be restarted and then YAY Cydia is there..<br>
something that I faced was database error after opening Absinth on my iPad.. I found this procedure to work it out..<br>
I have multiple VPN accounts on my iPad, if you have so, then go to Settings there should be a new configuration named jailbreak added..<br>
select it as default, then open Absinthe.. There should be no problem then..<br>
