    I was curious if anyone jail-broke their iPhone 4S yet?

    The day the windows version was available! :)
    There is a jailbreak area of the forums that you can look into, not from the app though. You need to access the full site.

    Buggy? So far so great for me. Been one of the more stable JB's (at least for me).
    I have found a few things that aren't working / playing nice with iOS 5 though.

    I say it's probably 50/50 that it installs correctly the first time from what I've seen & then there still may be problems getting absinthe to launch or cydia locking up. If it doesn't do it right the first time you end up having to do a lot of unnecessary crap to attempt it again.

    Mines work great, no bugs as far as I can tell. I love jailbreaking my Apple products!

    Jailbreak took 7 minutes and went through the first time. Everything is working fine for me.

    * Sorry, bad info on my part. It is not available from Redsnow.

    I'm not sure if there is an ETA. Here's what I'm going by:

    "Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we’ll also incorporate it into the redsn0w GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too). In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native Apple iTunes libraries — this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there." - Dev Team Blog

    I swear I read that today while researching a jailbreak for my iPhone 4?

    If I'm wrong, sorry for the bad info!*

    * I was wrong, it isn't Redsnow.

    I got it. Did a backup & wiped everything. Set up as new & jailbreak went smooth. Restore took forever though. Now I got a lot to learn.

    I haven't had any issues except for losing my Movies and Music. One quick sync with iTunes and I was set. I think it;s one of the most stable Jailbreaks I have done.

    Having a difficult time here. Takes me to the screen 'Beginning jailbreak, this may take a while....'
    but nothing happens even after 30 minutes, it does not progress. I wasn't going to JB but I want to try the Siri Extension Assistant.

    ughhh...what a pain. The spinning indicator in the status bar at the top stops spinning and disappears, and the whole thing just stops working. I'm using Windows and Absinthe v. 03

    Back your phone up with iTunes, erase all contents & settings, set it up as new then do the jailbreak. After you do the jailbreak restore from backup & you're good.

    JW, make sure your passcode is off. The jailbreak doesn't work if it's on. You could also try it on your MacBook. If that doesn't work, follow the directions VOLS just posted.
