I have an iphone 4s 6.1.2 jailbroken using evasi0n(older version).

Is it ok to jailbreak it again without upgrading to 6.1.3 but using the latest version of evasi0n? Please advise of any cons in doing so because I don't want to brick my phone.

How about using another tool? Please suggest if it is possible.

Thank you.

NOTE: Speakerphone works perfectly but no sound when playing music.

Sorry but you misunderstood me. I want to run a jailbreak on it again on 6.1.2.

It is already jailbroken on 6.1.2.

Is it ok to run a jailbreak twice on the same 6.1.2? Any cons???

At the alternatives section.
evasion updates itself through cydia.

if you can boot your jailbroken phone with no problems and have a cydia icon somewhere on your springboard what more do you want to accomplish with this re-jailbreak?

I have rejailbroken three times. I haven't had any problems. You should also run ilex rat to clean up the device.

What makes you think rejailbreaking will solve your 'no sound' issue?

I am thinking of a few possibilities:
1. The older version of evasi0n had some bug in it that affected the sound and am hoping that the latest version will fix it.

2. Jailbreaking deletes everything and the phone starts fresh again. So I am hoping that this could be a possibility of fixing the sound problem.

NOTE: Before I started everything on my first note above, I uninstalled all the apps that I have installed but it did not help at all.

How about running a different jailbreaking tool on top of the evasi0n? Will this brick the 4s?

1) no bugs that would cause any sound problem

2) jailbreaking again does not mean fresh phone, everything stays the same.

Did you try to put it in saf-mode and see if the sound problem persists.
If it does it is most probably a hardware problem if it does not have any problem in safe-mode try ILEX RAT to get rid of all unnecessary jailbreak tweaks.

To go in safe-mode turn it off and while holding volume-up press power.
Keep holding volume-up during the boot process.

I just did and the problem persist. But as I mentioned before, the speakerphone works perfectly but anything else fails to use the speakers. There are times that I will be able to hear the speakers between 1-15 seconds and this is usually after a reboot, then the sound will suddenly go away.

Should I try ILEX RAT?

Please advise.

After ILEX RAT, the sound of my music lasted about 6 minutes then it was gone again.

I think I will try semi restore. Please let me know if there is any very bad CONS on this one.

Thanks again.

I believe this is a hardware issue in the phone thinking its docked, has happened to both my mum's and dad's iphones, some say cleaning out the dock connector thoroughly has fixed the issue but it hasnt fixed my parents, what i've done to theirs is add http://exile90software.com/cydia/ install icleaner pro, open it up and go to the 2nd tab along the bottom and I believe it's the accessory deamon, turn this off and click apply. hopefully this solves your problem however it may be of no use as it renders accessories other than chargers unusable which isn't a problem for my parents.

It's pointless to rejailbreak it. If there was a bug in the first evasi0n software, you will just have to update it in Cydia and it should be fixed.

Bring it to Apple and see what they say.

I tried ILEX RAT and Semi Restore but it didn't work at all.

iCleaner Pro did not sound that good becauase of this "however it may be of no use as it renders accessories other than chargers unusable which isn't a problem for my parents." but it did work like magic and everything works now hahaha... and the good thing is that the accessories still work(headset and blutooth).

Thank you sooooo much dude.

glad to know it worked for you, I believe it's quite a common issue. And yes headset and bluetooth should still work as you said, I think it just disables accessories that use the dock (stereos, radios etc.) which isn't an issue for the parents and as both of their phones are out of warranty it's not worth them paying for a replacement :)

That's awesome dude. FYI, when it says accessories, it means accessories connected via the dock, not the headphone jack. Enjoy your fixed device!
