Untethered Jailbreak iPhone 4S iOS 6.1.2

You can look back through this blog at the variety of Jailbreaks I have done, iPod, iPhone 3GS a few times...

Each time, the technology of the Jailbreak improves, and seems to get easier.

Well this time was ridiculously easy!

(now I didn't have to unlock the phone...Sprint already did that for I didn't have to worry about radio etc).

I will drop a couple of links here.. the instructions I found with a link to the Evasi0n downloads.

The video on that first link shows how easy it is.

I removed the passcode lock on my phone, did an iTunes unencrypted backup, ran the Evasi0n software and followed the instructions.

One weird part is about 3/4 of the way through the install, the installer tells you to tap the Jailbreak icon on your phone once.

...I didn't read that carefully enough, and was attempting to click on the ghosted Jailbreak button on the installer...till I re-read that big deal.

After a few minutes it was done and all my settings were unchanged!

Unfortunately there are (as of this posting) there are no untethered Jailbreaks for the 4S at any higher iOS if you have upgraded above are not going to have a good time.

Now the reason I wanted to jailbreak this phone was to install a tethering app...
