So, don’t be alarmed and please do not touch the device, the process can be quite time consuming.
Step 4: Once the restore is completed, unlock your iPhone / iPad and look for the ‘Absinthe’ icon which you can find on device’s Springboard. Connect your device with WiFi. Tapping the icon will launch the GreenPois0n website, and then your device will reboot. After the reboot is completed, You will notice that Absinthe icon will now have replaced with Cydia icon.
NOTE: If you are receiving an ‘Error establishing connection’ message at this step, exit to your Springboard and be patient.

Alternatively, as a quick fix you can head over to the SETTINGS > GENERAL > NETWORK > VPN entry and then toggle VPN to ‘on’. This will cause an error message to be generated, which will reboot your device when dismissed. You can then launch the Absinthe icon again.
Step 5: Now your device is booted into a jailbroken state. You can now launch Cydia and follow through the process of setting up your favorite tweaks. Have Fun!
