It is not clear if this same method will help with an iPhone 4S iOS 6 jailbreak.

The iPhone jailbreak community has already released an iOS 6 jailbreak for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS, though it is a tethered jailbreak.

A tethered jailbreak requires users to plug in to a computer any time the iPhone restarts, or lose functionality. An untethered jailbreak is much more desirable, allowing users to use the iPhone without restrictions on restarting.

There are many reasons to jailbreak the iPhone 5, but the ability to run software not found in the official Apple App Store is one of the biggest. These iPhone jailbreak apps let users take greater control over the iPhone an customize the appearance of the software in many ways.

    The problem? Planned obsolescence / engineered fragility. Our phones allow us to be far more productive, until they inevitably break. Use a STOUT case to absorb those impact energies. When it does break: http://www.fixmyiphone.com/iphone_51 1yr warranty
