    Default 4s 5.1 jailbreak question
    My wife connected my 4s and upgraded from 5.0 to 5.1. I was jailbroken and now I am not.
    I have not found any reputable free jailbreaks for 5.1/4s. Do the paid ones work? I am willing to spend the 20 bucks... I want my jailbreak back!!

    Thank you for any help.

    I'm in the same boat. My jailbroken 4s was stuck in an endless reboot loop after I tried to update a Cydia package. I had to restore the iOS using iTunes, and this meant upgrading to iOS 5.1. So I am screwed until either a jailbreak is released or a way to downgrade the 4s is developed. Both are in the works, but there is no telling when either will be released. Hopefully it will be weeks and not months.

    according to iH8sn0W, the current 5.1 jailbreak that only the "Gods" have contains copyrighted code that cannot be released to the public, at least the one that iH8sn0W has

    I dont know bout the others..

    but he also states releasing it now is not beneficial as Apple will patch it up pretty quickly...

    but lets hope the others will work on a release for it soon

    Do a search. Idk the details yet but ih8sn0w has found a way to downgrade a5 and a5x devices. Like I said I don't know all the details but I know there are articles out there that state he has a working downgrade capability for new devices.

    Ah! Ok. Yeah I wasn't sure and wanted to know myself. That guy is a whiz at find downgrading capabilities. I hope he releases it soon. Well actually it might be best if he waits until the i5 is released so Apple doesn't screw that up for us. I think it'll be a bit harder to fix in an updated firmware than the release of iOS 6, which is RUMORED to be coming with the new iPhone release. I guess we will see.

    One of the main reasons he hasn't released the downgrade capability is because he knows if he releases it too early then Apple will just patch it up in a new update.

    I don't know what's up with people upgrading and losing jailbreak... I jail broke w/ absinthe and somehow ran the OTA and am still Broken. People dispute this claim and it makes me laugh...I have zero problem making a video of the untethered reboot.
