But however, many jailbreakers still found some issues including photos in camera roll being disappeared to nowhere. Once jailbroken, users will see their camera roll is empty with no photos there. How to fix it?

PlanetBeing has just tweeted a simple fix how to restore all photos missing from jailbroken iPhone 4S / iPad 2 Camera Roll.

Camera Roll will be empty if the jailbreak is incomplete. Rerun the app once to fix, and then another time to complete the jailbreak.

Once done, re-run Absinthe A5 again to complete the jailbreak. Or shortly, you’ll need to rerun the app twice. Once to fix empty camera roll error and the other to complete jailbreak procedure successfully. That’s it.

When you read this article I’m sure you already have Absinthe downloaded and your iPhone 4S / iPad 2 is already jailbroken untethered. If not, simply go here to download Absinthe A5 and go here to jailbreak your iPhone 4S / iPad 2 untethered using Absinthe.

    Nice idea, but I get “ERROR: Device already jailbroken! Detected stash” when I try to run Absinthe a second time.

    The problem is I have no camera roll photos and haven’t been successful with the jailbreak itself. It errors every single time I try to install it. Any ideas on how to get my photos back after having unsuccessful installs?

    CAMERAROLL FIX, this is what I did, downloading swapcameraroll from cydia may not be necessary.
    I downloaded the cydia app “swapcameraroll” from modmyi source, it will install an icon on your homescreen, I clicked on it several times but it did not fix the issue right away. I then did a hard reset, Held the power button and home button until the phone restarted, DO NOT SLIDE TO POWER OFF, after that my phone started back up and my pictures and videos were all back in my cameraroll.

    Good luck

    I’m wondering if it isn’t absinthe, but rather a tweak or app installed via Cydia. I didn’t notice my pics were all missing until after I had installed and uninstalled Winterboard and Dreamboard. Trying to avoid a restore to factory because it takes so damn long.

    I yesterday jailbroke my iPhone 4S and then transferred about 100 of pictures via iTunes.
    I then shot like 50 pictures same evening and then shut off my iPhone 4S befor bedtime.
    However, when I turned on my iPhone this morning, my three camera rolls dissapeared
    and I now have one single Camera Roll that only contains 20 pictures from before I jailbroke my iPhone….
    Please help me. Can I restore my pictures from yesterday evening? Hope it is possible through for example iExplorer?
    Thanks in advance
