    I have got iPhone 4s on iOS 5.0.1 untethered, I was so excited when the new absinthe came out for 5.1.1. The question is how to jailbreak my iPhone to the latest update as I’m finding difficulties, when updating this message appears : error device already jailbroken detected stash.

    Could someone tell me what to do to get the latest jailbreak.

    Thank you

    Has anyone else noticed photobooth is just a white icon on iPad 2 32gb wifi?

    Jailbreak works oke, but apps won’t install on my iPad2. Only the ones I’ve got from the iTunes store. So what did the jaibreake do?

    Everything worked great on my ipad 2. I was even able to restore all my jail broken apps from iTunes

    Just “respring” your device when this happens. It’s pretty common. Cheers.

    You need to update to the latest stock firmware in iTunes, THEN jailbreak. It sounds as if you were running a jailbreak on your device (possibly tethered) and tried to jailbreak over the top of it.

    It sounds like you are installing cracked ipa files….if so you need to install Appsync for 5.1X through the hackul0us repo, but piracy is kinda lame.
