Hey guys
I was thinking of jailbreaking my iPhone 4S and was wondering what is the best jailbreak software I should use?

Latetst Absinthe under windows. For some reason Mac version never worked for me.

As a first timer I'd advice using Absinthe because it's pretty much: connect your iPhone, hit jailbreak, wait a bit and done.

Although sometimes I seem to have errors with it, so just restore and try again if you get an error.

Remember, to back EVERYTHING up: music, videos, pictures, notes... Good luck :)

You can use the latest redsn0w or absinthe. I've used both and both work perfectly fine. It's the exact same thing for both.

Edit: when I say the exact same I'm referring to the A5 devices. Using Redsn0w with the A4 devices can use the absinthe "restore" method or the more traditional ramdisk limera1n exploit.
