    iPad 2 (first gen). Updated to 5.1.1 today.

    I’ve tried Settings> General> Reset> Erase All Content and Settings
    I’ve tried numerous restores, including a fresh restore after downloading a fresh ipsw. I’ve been jailbreaking for 3 years and have never had this problem.

    I’m still stuck on [B]”Waiting for reboot – not done yet, don’t unplug your device yet!”[/B].

    It’s been that way for HOURS.

    I downloaded absinthe for my 3GS and somehow my email, text program, contacts, telephone, and many other programs disappeared!

    Any reason that would happen?
    And how the heck do I get it back??

    I’ve tried Restore in iTunes, but it says my Settings are incorrect, or need to be sure they’re correct.

    Downloaded Absinthe nothing went wrong, until was finished. Cydia wouldnt open, everytime i pressed it would just blink. I turned off my Iphone hoping it would resolve the issue but it did not. Many of my apps have been deleted. Settings,Music,Itunes,App Store. Turned it off again and now phone will not boot. Just stuck on the Apple logo. Any regards to fixn this please help!!
