[How To] Fix “Error Establishing A Database Connection” During Absinthe Jailbreak

Update 1: Version 0.1.2-2 of Absinthe has been released to direct the web clip to Greepois0n.com and help your jailbreak. Download it here.

Chronic-Dev Team has finally released the GreenPois0n Absinthe v0.1.2.-1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 running iOS 5.0/5.0.1 firmwares. Even though the jailbreak tool is pretty simple to use but it appears that some people are getting an “Error Establishing a Database Connection” message when they launch Absinthe app during the jailbreak process. Luckily, theres an easy fix for that.

Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1:

Turn off any pass codes on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 devices before running the jailbreak tool on your Mac or PC.

Step 2:

When you get the above mentioned error while attempting to run Absinthe, go to:

Settings > General > VPN > Turn ON.

** You must remove every other VPN configuration you might have on your device except “jailbreak” before turning the switch to ON. This is important!

Step 3:

You will get an error. Simply wait for about 3–5 seconds and your device will reboot automatically (if it doesn’t, hold down power and home buttons for a few seconds for a manual reboot).

Step 4:

On reboot, the Absinthe app will have turned into a Cydia icon.
