Hi guys, I own an iPhone 4S and I'm a big fan of jailbreaking and jailbreak tweaks. I just wanted to start this thread for any other fans of jailbreaking.
As of the newest iOS 6.1.3, I do not believe there is a reliable jailbreaking tool out there, but for iOS 6.1.2 and lower, there are various tools that can be used.
iDownloadBlog has a great overview for how to jailbreak an iDevice (I personally have experience with GreenPois0n for iOS 4.2.1 with an iPod Touch 2G MC version and Evasi0n for iOS 6.1.0 to 6.1.2 for iPhone 4S).
Don't forget to back-up your current SHSH blob so you can roll-back to it if you upgrade the firmware in the future (it's too late to back-up iOS 6.2.2 and below though)!
Also, just for safety's sake, back-up your data with iTunes' backup feature just in case things go wrong and you need to get your iDevice back to normal.
*I am not responsible for any damages done to any iDevices. Jailbreaking itself voids your Apple warranty. Please jailbreak at your own risk*
My essential jailbreak app of choice would be Activator. Even if you don't use any other jailbreaking tweak, I think Activator is single-handedly one of the most useful tweaks out there for audiophiles who use the default Music application often.
With Activator, I have the following configured:
- Hold up-volume button: skip to next track
- Hold down-volume button: rewind to start of track/previous track
- Press up/down-volume buttons at the same time: start/pause music
^ With these hotkeys set, it makes in-pocket music controls a breeze to use without having to turn the screen on, and alleviates the problem of having a lack of physical media buttons.
I also have a few YouTube videos explaining how to jailbreak your iOS 6.1.2 device and some of the Cydia tweaks I have installed (don't mind my bad videos, hahaha).
My current iDevice setup (I'll probably take a better photo at a later time):
(setup is iPhone 4S -> FiiO L3 Line-Out Dock -> JDS Labs C5 -> V-MODA Crossfade M-100)
Some tweaks I like (bold ones are the ones I like the most): *also note that these are all free tweaks; you can't get any cheaper than free :) *
