I received an iPhone 4S as a gift, branded by Orange UK. It runs iOS 6 (6.0.1(10A523)).

I didn't unlock it yet; I'm using it without a SIM and I'm enjoying the apps, but I want to jailbreak it.

What should I do know? I want to use it locked, but is there a jailbreak?


As of January 2013, there is no jailbreak for iOS 6. The reason is that iOS 6 introduced new security mechanisms and fixed the exploits that made the jailbreak possible on iOS 5.

You will have to wait.

  • +1 for some good information and links, but you're missing a bit so long as you don't restrict your answer to 4S-only. There are no public untethered jailbreaks for any devices on iOS 6 for now. However, the A4 devices are tethered (have to jailbreak again on each boot) for life, and the iPhone 3GS old bootrom is untethered (a "normal" jailbreak) for life. – Andrew Larsson Jan 10 '13 at 16:34
