You just reinstall them after you jailbreak.

I might give it one more go. I jailbroke before but really didn't find any "must have" apps on Cydia.

Keep us all posted on any glitches or problems. I will wait a week or two just be on the safe side and then try it one more time. The great thing about jailbreaking and un-jailbreaking is that it is so damned easy to do.

One caution, though I doubt few here will be affected by this; do not install Absinthe while booted to Mac OS X 10.8. Absinthe will not launch. I rebooted to 10.7.4, Absinthe loaded and I "opened" my iPad 1. Cydia pops up after the device restarted. I took a look at what is available under Cydia, and most likely will restore the locked version of 5.1.1.

iPhone 4. PC windows 7. Jailbreak went just fine. The only issues I seem to encounter is not being able to download stuff in Cydia on first attempts but I believe that is more to do with everybody updating their phones.

I'm a happy guy now

Why isn't there a Jailbreak for the iPhone 4S iOS 5.1 ? Why does the iPod or iPad have to be updated, although all I want to do is unlock my phone. I have a iPhone 4S with Verizon.

I have a Verizon iPhone I am just about trying to get this phone unlocked to T-mobile. I think this particular was locked by Verizon because the previous owner lost it.
