    I have a regular stock Verizon iPhone 4S I want to make it quicker and more responsive, Will jail breaking it do this for me. Also are all jailbreaks the same or are there different types ?? (Sort of like ROMs on android).

    The jailbreak it's self doesn't change the phone. Jailbreak is like root to android. And the tweaks, themes and Cydia apps you install as a whole are like a rom.

    There are some things that you can do to speed up the 4S. The 4S is pretty fast already and has no lag issues like the 4 does. You can speed up the animations, remove lots of unneeded files and remove launch daemons.

    It's also possible to get things done faster with certain tweaks by increasing the functionality of the OS.

    If you're asking stuff like that then you're not ready to JB.
    What ios version is your 4S on?

    You can't jailbreak a 4S running 6.1.3

    Different ways? There's only one way and been that way for a while to jailbreak iOS 6 (on the 4S/5) and that's using evasi0n

    ----------

    It's all over the Internet. The popular tweaks will be popping left and right

    There's always idownloadblog.com
    They make reviews of lots of the more popular tweaks

    6.0-6.1.2 can be jailbroken on the 4S, but the thing is that you can't downgrade, so you're stuck with 6.1.3.

    In other words you cannot jb your iphone and you cannot go down to an earlier firmware version in order to JB.
    All you can do is wait for the next ios 7 JB to be released.
