    iPhone4S iOS 5.0.1(9A405) Firmware 1.0.13

    This is my first apple device. I know little about Jailbreaks. Ultimately I want to Unlock the phone.
    I'm confused with iDBs blog posts a lil.
    I can't use this Absinthe JB at the moment if I want to unlock right?
    Can I downgrade to 5.0 with iFaith?
    And if I JB the device, there's no turning back? Will I be able to unlock in future still?
    Any comments and advises are appriciated, thanks.

    I'm a Windows user and have no access to Mac OS. Guess I can't use this new JB anyway. Who releases JB software for Windows?

    Absinthe for Windows was released today.

    What do I do?

    you cannot downgrade to 5.0. apple is only signing 5.0.1 right now

    and there is no unlock for 5.x . might never be. the slim chance we are hearing now is if your a 5.0...then maybe one day.

    jailbreaking your device now won't harm anything.
