Hallo. I got this "the attached device id not activated you need to activate is before it can be used with absinthe" any idies how to jb without activation?
I'm using the Mac version of Absinthe 2.0 I get to where my phone reboot says "Waiting to complete" then I get an error "Hmm... Something went wrong" it going to do a recovery complete tells me to retry again... when I try it on a Windows 7 box im getting an 0xE8000012 error...any ideas anyone?
Edit: After Restoring my iPhone using Itunes, I was able to use Absinthe 2.0 to jailbreak my iPhone 4S... Restore using iTunes is the way to go!!
