I was all ready to jailbreak for the first time and was reading an iPhone tech site that walks you through it. It seemed easy enough until I started reading the responses and there were many who claimed that they had trouble and it wouldn't wotk, etc. Then I started reading posts about making sure you keep Blobs or something like that and then someone mentioned keeping the baseband and I began to get cold feet about doing it. How is it that people with an iPhone 4s all running 5.1.1 can get different results. I can understand this with Android since there are many makes, models and variations but it seems that it shouldn't happen with the iPhone. The other thing that was mentioned was that if you updated to 5.1.1. OTA that jailbreaking might not always work right and that you should update the OS via iTines. Any help on these issues would be appreciated. Also, does anyone have a preference of redsnow or absinthe?
