Hello! My daughter has an 8GB iPhone 4 with firmware 5.1. She's been acting strange lately, and as a concerned parent, I'd like to jailbreak her phone in an attempt to keep an eye on her. Is there any way I can do an untethered jailbreak of 5.1 or at the very least downgrade the firmware? No, I do not have any of the SHSH files, as I was unaware she upgraded until it was too late. Please, I'll do anything to protect my daughter. She can't know that I'm doing this, so a tethered jailbreak won't work.
I'm pretty sure we shouldn't be giving out advice on how to jailbreak someones phone without their consent. It may well be out of concern for your daughter, but nonetheless its fairly unethical.
Besides, not sure how jailbreaking is going to help. If you just need to track the location of the phone there are a number of ways to do this, jailbreaking isnt nessacary.
I'd be surprised if she puts her phone down long enough for you to do this, anyway;-)
