How to Jailbreak iPhone 4s

What is Jailbreak

iPhone 4s might seem to be an all-in-one phone by not only allowing you to stay in contact with your friends and family but by also providing you with all the latest attractions a gadget can possibly offer. But despite this, there are still many restrictions in the latest iPhone and this is where the jailbreak comes in. Whether it is an iPad or an iPhone, if you want to use it to the fullest, you need to get it jail broken. Basically jail break allow you to manage your iPhone’s home screen, customize the menu and icon style, install all those applications which are not free on App store and even those which are not even available at the Apple App store. Moreover, jail break also allows you to install various handy tools, mobile themes and paid application software and games for free. Therefore jailbreak can help iPhone users to get rid of all the limitations and restrictions imposed by the Apple operating system.

All about tethered and untethered version of Jailbreak

The most important thing which needs to be kept in mind at the time of jailbreak is the firmware and the baseband of your iPhone 4s. There are two types of jailbreak, the tethered and the untethered. When a new firmware is released, the jailbreak available is the tethered version. There are a few limitations and drawbacks of the tethered version of jailbreak. The most common complaint about the tethered jailbreak is that the iPhone 4s does not restart or power on if it is not connected to the computer. So if your battery dies out or you accidently switch off your iPhone 4s, you would not be able to switch it back on without connecting it to a computer and then following the specific procedure to switch it back on.   Whereas untethered jailbreak does not have this issue.
