    No jailbreak has been released for iOS 5 on the iPhone 4S. When a jailbreak is released, however, there should be no restrictions on your use. Jailbroken phones retain all of their functionality and may be synced with iTunes without any issues. I don't know where you got the idea that that couldn't. All that is changed is that you have access to the file system and can install non-App Store apps.

    I restart my phone maybe once or twice a month, so this is an absolute non-factor for me.

    I was simply replying to the poster that said there is "no jailbreak" for iOS5. Thanks for pointing out the obvious though.

    Well...OP is talking about the IP4s, which is using a A5 processor, no JB for that hardware yet, iP4 running iOS5 on the A4 processor can be JB using the Bootroom exploit which it will always be there.

    I don't want to de-rail the thread, but I have a question if anyone has a moment and cares to answer. How often do you power off your iPhone intentionally or unintentionally?

    Here's where I ask. I'm fairly new to jailbreaking; first jailbreak was about six months ago. I've owned and used iPhones since June 29, 2007 - the day of the first release. As the battery life has gotten better, and as the OS has gotten more stable, and as the likelihood that my iPhone will be charging on one device or another here and there throughout the day, I will go for days and days - if not two or three weeks - at a time without my iPhone going off. Is that uncommon?

    I guess what I'm getting at is the seemingly universal hesitation to go with a tethered jailbreak, such as for iOS 5. I really don't foresee the need to do a tethered boot to be such an issue since my phone is off so very infrequently. Am I alone in this regard? Should I be turning on my iPhone more? Am I looking at this the right way?

    I'm interested in anyone's thoughts. Thanks.

    This isn't exactly what you asked, but the only problem I've had since jb'ing my 4 is Skype doesn't work. It says it doesn't work with modified phones.

    As H1 said, it is only a warning, Skype works 100% fine. :)

    Yep A5 still remains to be seen if it can be jailbroken or will it be through software now.

    That is correct.
    Unless the IPA is from your itunes account and legit. Not a pirated one.
