Hello !

I just bought 4S with v5.1.1, it is already jailbroken, but there is no Cydia and Absinthe isn't allowing me to jailbreak it again saying that it is already jailbroken and can't be done again.

Is there any way to JB ?

Check if you have 5.1.1 shsh using redsn0w 9.15b3/extras/shsh/query. Hope that didn't get to 5.1.1 using OTA update so you can use redsn0w 9.15b3/extras/even more/restore to rerestore to 5.1.1 and jailbreak.
