I thought it’d be hard but it turns out to be super-easy. In the last hour I’ve jailbroken my iOS 5.1 iPhone 4S by upgrading to iOS 5.1.1 and then running the Absinthe 2.0.4 jailbreak (via here). It seems that iOS 5.1 doesn’t have an untethered jailbreak (only a tethered one – you have to boot with your phone tethered to maintain the jailbreak). This opens the door to playing with the jailbroken app store Cydia.
I see that my Galaxy S now has an Ice Cream Sandwich open source OS too. More toys 🙂
