Absinthe 2.0 Jailbreak Waiting For Process To Complete Error Fix

Absinthe 2.0 Jailbreak Waiting For Process To Complete Error Fix

Chronic Dev-Team has just released the new jailbreak tool for iOS 5.1.1. Absinthe untethered jailbreak for all devices. The jailbreak woks on all devices including iPad3, iPad2, iPhone4S and the remaining earlier devices. The jailbreak tool is now available and can be downloaded from the download page here

Seems like some users are having trouble when jailbreaking their devices. The error that some users are facing is "Waiting For Process To Complete" A quick turn around for this error would be to perform a clean restore on your device from iTunes. Once you perform a clean restore, you can try jailbreaking your device again using Absinthe 2.0 and it should work without any errors.

If you are already on Tethered jailbreak using Redsn0w, don't run Absinthe. Simply launch Cydia and search for Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 untether and install it and your device will get untethered jailbreak.

Update 1 : User @dawerji83 was able to successfully jailbreak his iPhone4S after performing a clean restore via iTunes. If you are facing the same error 'waiting for process to complete', simply restore your device from iTunes and then retry jailbreaking and it will work.

Steps To Fix Waiting For Process To Complete Error

Step 1 : Put your iPhone into DFU mode
Instructions For Getting Into DFU Mode
  • Switch off your iPhone
  • Hold the power button for 3 seconds
  • Now, without releasing the power button also press and hold the home button for 10 seconds.
  • Without releasing the home button, release the power button but continue holding the home
Step 2 : Launch iTunes and iTunes should alert you that an iPhone has been detected in recovery mode.

Step 3 : Click on restore if you don't have iOS 5.1.1 firmware downloaded in your pc. If you have already downloaded iOS 5.1.1 then hold down (shift key) for windows and (alt key) for mac and click on the restore button.

Step 4 : Show the path where you have downloaded the iOS 5.1.1 firmware and then click on restore.

Step 5 : Wait for iTunes to restore your device.

Step 6 : Once your device is successfully restored, launch Absinthe and click on jailbreak.

That's it!

Update 2 : Those who are still unable to fix the issue can try the command line tutorial here

Update 3 : Chronic Dev-Team has pushed an immediate update to fix minor bugs and errors. Download Absinthe 2.0.1 to fix all errors

Update 4 : Absinthe 2.0.4 Released To Support iPad2,4 Jailbreak

Do a clean restore from iTunes and Activate the device in iTunes (as opposed to on the device itself). Then run Absinthe and that does the trick for me at least.

iPhone 4 GSM on Windows 7 after a clean update to 5.1.1 from 5.0.1:
Absinthe Log:
* Beginning Jailbreak, this may take a while.
* Sending initial jailbreaking data, this may also take a while.
* Sending final jailbreaking data, your iPhone4 should appear to be in restoring mode. This may also take a while.
* Waiting for reboot. Not done yet - don't unplug your iPhone4
* Waiting for process to complete...
[This step freezes for some time (the Springboard is already loaded and the phone can be used normally, NO restore mode and NO Cydia).]
* Hmm... something seems to have go wrong... trying to recover
* Recover completed. If you want to retry jailbreaking, unplug your device and plug it back again.

After hours of trying, it worked for me to do a restore with iTunes, activate it through itunes (don't even unlock the phone at the device) and then run absinthe immediately following the itunes activation (with itunes still open, in fact).

One other note -- if you see the restore bar on the phone go across it is likely working. I hadn't seen that the umpteen other times I tried it (before doing the iTunes restore/activation)

guys for those having this problem, restore as a new iphone, BUT DO NOT SYNC whit itunes!, so close itunes once the restore is done. That worked for me, good luck!
