    Ok so this is going to sound stupid but I'm looking to jailbreak my iPhone 4S it's on 6.1. I have never jailbroke my phone before and have no idea how to do so any advice would be greatly accepted. Please don't flame me I just need help.

    Thanks in advance

    advice 1: wait until 6.1.1 is compatible. no point in jailbreaking now you'll have to redo everything when you update the firmware.

    advice 2: head to evasi0n.com, download the software (on your Mac or PC) and follow the instructions :D

    what kind of advice that?!

    OP, listen to the second reply.
    anyways, u don't really need a tutorial. the steps are well explained during the jailbreak. all u have to do is go to evasi0n.com on your computer, download the version according to your computer OS. then open the file, and follow instructions.

    good luck.

    EDIT: just realized now that 6.1.1 has been released. sorry.

    so you might wanna wait a few days to know if it is compatible with the jailbreak, or just jailbreak you current firmware.

    Nothing will be lost because you will have carried out a back up before jail-breaking.

    6.1.1 is compatible with the jailbreak, and evasi0n has been updated to JB the 4S on 6.1.1.
