How to Jailbreak iPhone 4S ? This is the first question that logically asked after you get the newly iPhone 4S in you hands. Apple announced iPhone 4S for the first time on its famous "Let's Talk iPhone" event in October. So it's important to explain the situation of iPhone 4S jailbreak in details for our readers so that everyone can take his proper decision.
Can I jailbreak iPhone 4S with the current jailbreak tool ?
To answer this question you have to know that we separated iDevices in to two categories based on its processor's chip. The first category included (iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G and iPad 1) which have a less than A5 processor. The second category included (iPhone 4S and iPad 2).
The first category can be jailbroken easily up to iOS 5 with the current jailbreak tool such as Redsn0w and Sn0wbreeze. In the second category, you have to know that the only exploit found to jailbreak iPad 2 was a userland exploit which took more than 1 year to develop by Comex to build JailbreakMe 3.0, but unfortunately, Apple came simply and patched it on iOS 4.3.4 firmware update after 10 days only. And you have to know that iPhone 4S coming with iOS 5.
But we still have good news for you, as the hackers have on their hands more than 5 bootrom exploits to jailbreak A5-devices , the iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
