    For the last time...

    The iPhone 4 can ALWAYS be jailbroken because of a HARDWARE Exploit (tethered jailbreak).

    Any iDevice above an A4 Chip requires a SOFTWARE Exploit.

    Stop thinking we can get a tethered jailbreak on A5 & A6 chips unless a HARDWARE Exploit is found.

    Do your homework and understand the difference...

    A4 has a tethered jailbreak. Not the A5

    I'm sure they post pics to get everyone to adopt the new iOS so everyone updates and they can extort more money out of saurik, not that I feel bad for him and his monopolist outdated Cydia.

    Only reason I jailbreak now is for BiteSMS, SBSettings, and Activator. And then those other little gems you find every now and then. But the vast majority of apps on Cydia are useless, along with Theming which slows down the phone to a stand still. I love iOS 6 (even though it was kind of a disappointment feature wise), does everything it needs to and made my phone A LOT more faster. So point of my post is I can wait for a jailbreak, heck waited two months back when the iPhone 4 first came out.

    I can wait almost a year for an untethered jailbreak for 6.0... By then some kinks will be ironed out and many of the most used mods on Cydia will be compatible... I waited 5 months for a jailbreak for 3.1.3 and went crazy cause I needed to be Jailbroken to use my phone on t-mobile... I learned after that never to update until a jailbreak is available and even if it is to wait a little longer do things can be updated to work with the newer firmware...

    On the bright side, there are many packages on Cydia that already have been updated with support for 6.0... Hang in there y'all...

    Yes there is a jb but it does NOT install Cydia. You'll have to SSH everything into your phone but there's not enough compatible tweaks released to even consider going through all that trouble. Unless of course you have the capability to update every tweak you want. A theme wouldn't be to hard, but still not worth it, for me at least.

    and it makes sense, even if there was a jailbreak, to wait until Apple releases IOS 6.1

    Patience. Patience. Patience. Give these talented people time. It amazes me how so many people feel genuinely entitled to a jailbreak (now now now hurry hurry hurry!). Every iOS to date has been jailbroken so be patient and it will be here when it's ready and stable.

    Back up everything and restore it back after. What is it you don't want to lose? You do have to do a clean instal of 5.11 there is no 'downgrade' without a restore.

    Two problems there. You cant restore a backup from a more recent firmware to an older one. And a 4S cannot currently be downgraded back to 5.1.1.

    But, apart from that...

    OK, it's late here. Goodnight.
