Worked fine here - well, Absinthe wouldn't launch so I popped into the
package in Terminal and ran absinthe-10.6 from the command line. That
works fine, and told me what it was up to a lot more than the UI does.
I didn't bother with the initial reset, as it only said it'd be
quicker (but not quicker than clearing, jailbreaking, restoring I
bet!). Took about half an hour, including Absinthe backing up 10gig or
so and restoring it.
I did the iPad3 first, since it's less mission critical than the
phone. Cydia's nice and quick... Oh, no it's not. It's just responding
before it finishes downloading its catalogues. No use at all!
jailbreak with Absinthe again after the reset, but it just seemed to do
Mine really did nothing - Absinthe wouldn't even start - so I had to
workaround that. Turned out there's an Absinthe programme that calls
the 10.5 or 10.6+ code, and that was borked for me (for special
reasons!). If you get the GUI, then you shouldn't need to do it this
way - but it is usefully informative. Here's the recipe:
Mount the Absinthe DMG, open Terminal.
In Terminal, type (or copy'n'paste)
cd /Volumes/Absinthe\ 2.0.1/Absinthe.app/Contents/MacOS/
and hit enter, then
and hit enter.
That should fire up the GUI, and also gives you messages in the
terminal window. The GUI does stick for a looooong time near the
start, but the terminal window shows you what's happening. Except when
that sticks for a long time too, when it's doing the backup and
restore - but that should be pretty obvious from the messages
