    A question: I have a 3 year old iPhone 4 and it is broke as in a hardware failure. The carrier is Verizon Wireless and they will swap out the iPhone 4, but it will most likely be the latest iOS version, the question is since I previously had a jailbreak on the iPhone in the past, will I be able to jailbreak the new iPhone 4?

    Of course. If it's 7.0 to 7.0.6, use Evasi0n. Anything higher (including latest 7.1.2) can be JB with Pangu.

    I believe iPhone 4 is jailbreakable on any iOS version. The question is just whether it will be tether or untether. Right now you can use pangu and untether. Before there was geeksnow that was a tethered iOS 7.1 jailbreak

    Does that also apply for the 4S? Or just the original 4?

    just the 4, 4S and above are essentially all the same when it comes to jailbreaking

    What are the chances that the 4S could be untethered jailbreaked?

    if the 4S becomes publicly untethered jailbreak, usually all the other devices will be as well

    and iphone 4s on any firmware. 5.0-7.1.2 are jail breakable, so any 4s will work.
