    So I've never jailbroken before but I want to jailbreak my iPhone 4S (5.0.1 9A406) whenever that is possible. Is there anything I should do now? Any tools to download on my mac? I read pod2g saying we shouldn't update to 5.0.2 whenever it's released so I'll hold off on that. Is there a good thread here or some other website that has good tutorials? I don't want to jailbreak to get apps for free like some people do. I want to be able to customize my phone and get themes and widgets and stuff like that. If I decide I want to restore my iPhone to factory settings after jailbreaking, is there any way for Apple to know I jailbroke? I'm worried about that and also that my iPhone will become slow and laggy but I hear it depends on what you download but since I don't know anything, how do I know what is ok to download and what will make my iPhone slow?

    The first sticky is how to restore your iPhone and I know how but will Apple know I jailbroke if I restore and take it into a store to have it replaced or something? And the second sticky doesn't cover iOS 5

    Apple will not know that your iPhone has been jailbroken if restored to factory settings.

    You can check out iclarified.com for tutorials and some more information when the A5 jb is released.
