    can someone please direct me to a thread or a source that can properly educate me on how to jail break? a simple step by step. i don't want to mess things up. yes i did use the search function but it yields hundreds of results and i dont know who or which one to listen to. im hoping that my attempt at posting this thread will help give a collective and final word to help others in my position as well.

    As of right now, unfortunately, there is no jailbreak for the iPhone 4s or iPad 2. Hopefully one will be released soon. I'm sure you'll hear it on these forums when it is.

    Hello Videonewbie and welcome to the Macrumors forum. The iPhone 4s is not able to be jailbroken as of yet. But it may be done soon.

    I would advise you read the sticky posts for these forums to familiarize yourself with the jailbreaking world and specifically the lingo that is used.

    Word of advise you can severely damage your phone if you don't know what your doing so please be cautious.

    If you intend to try to unlock your phone in the future (for use on other carriers) then it is advised you stay on iOS 5.0 if not upgrade to 5.0.1.

    At this point since this is supposed to be and I quote "the most amazing jailbreak yet" those who need unlock will be able to get it from 5.0.1.

    Well, I don't know about that, but pod2g did say that all users should update to 5.0.1.

    Please describe how 'you can severely damage your phone' doing a jailbreak.

    Since there's a jailbreak for 5.01 and 5.0 and 5.01 have the same baseband, there's no reason to stay on 5.0.

    Not true as stated by Musclenerd on 1/14/12 in reply to:

    @ridoy_2010 iPhone4S users should follow same guidelines as previous iPhones: stay on lowest baseband possible (so for 4S, stay at 5.0)

    5.0 is not the baseband.

    Understood. And you are not Musclenerd. I would take his advise before yours.

    Clearly, you don't understand. Explain your previous statement that jailbreaking can severely damage a phone.

    Baseband on 5.0 is 1.0.11 and on 5.0.1 is 1.0.13, so that tells me they aren't the same. I only assumed that 5.0.1 BB would be unlockable as well, based on an article from iPhoneblogr.com. May oral not be credible. Idk.

    5.0 is baseband 1.0.11
    5.0.1 (build 9A405) baseband 1.0.13
    5.0.1 (build 9A406) baseband 1.0.14

    So how are they the same? Also to explain my statement jailbreaking is dangerous if you don't know what you are doing when jailbreaking it.

    Repeating the same incorrect information doesn't make it correct. How is it dangerous and how can you 'severely damage' a phone?

    Are you referring to the baseband? Because I believe I am correct. You however haven't admitted that you are incorrect.

    If you are referring to the jailbreaking then I am speaking to the OP as they are navigating in uncharted water. The process of jailbreaking may be frightful to someone for the first time and if you don't know what you are doing...

    100% wrong, which is why la79 has not replied because he was equally wrong.

    Musclenerd advised those wanting to unlock not to upgrade to 5.0.1 or above and stay at 5.0. he said this a while back and has not changed that. he also stated that he will stay at 5.0 for now even though he helped with the jailbreak. you can check his tweeter and see what he said for yourselves. if you want to unlock I'd listen to Musclenerd since Musclenerd works mainly on unlocks and not the jailbreaks. Also you can't brick a iphone! 99.999 ) ;) also Newbies in general aren't the nest to take advice from there are exceptions of course but proceed with caution.

    An iPhone can be 'bricked'. However, that does not mean you will not be able to restore it.

    Just because it may be temporary does not mean 'can't'.

    Not trying to flame ^up there, but it's not bricked if you can restore it.

    Bricked = dead device, i.e., it's good for nothing. 'Temporarily bricked' is as ridiculous a term as 'temporarily dead'. Dead and bricked are binary attributes, not multi-value.

    Maybe he made it back then and didn't come on here that often or just not the iPhone Hacks section.

    Major thread fail. Either help the OP out or don't reply to the thread. Battle of nerd egos doesn't help anyone. Just let it go and move on.
