Can’t Get the Absinthe Jailbreak to Work? Turn On VPN

If you are getting an “error establishing a database connection” message when trying to jailbreak your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 with the recently released Absinthe, iOS hacker Yiduo Wang (@planetbeing) has a solution for you.

In your device’s settings, navigate to Settings > Network > VPN > ON. Although you will achieve an error by doing this, your device will quickly reboot and the jailbreak process should be fully functional. You might still have to open the Absinthe web clip to resume the jailbreak.
