    I'm trying to jailbreak my 4s using redsn0w but I keep getting an error "jailbreak failed, service won't start (3986)". I'm using 0.9.12b2 if that helps. Any ideas?

    Regards
    George

    Or just try Absinthe 2.0.4

    Firmware must be 5.1.1

    Both jailbreak 5.1.1
    If Redsn0w won't work, try Absinthe

    You may already know this, but the main difference between Redsn0w and Absinthe is the ability of the former to retain the modem firmware version for future unlocking for example. Absinthe is the easiest method though. Almost foolproof.
