    It's impossible to downgrade a 4s due to there not being a bootrom exploit as in earlier versions of the iPhone

    I'm not sure If they will find a bootrom exploit in the 4s. After all it has been a year since the 4s was released and no exploit as been found upto yet. That's not to say 1 will never be found.
    As for an ios6 jailbreak it won't be released for a couple of months at the earliest IMO so all you can do for now is just enjoy using your iPhone 4s running stock ios6 and wait patiently for a publicly released jailbreak

    Apple's position is that jailbreaking your phone voids the warranty, but all you have to do to obtain warranty service is to remove the jailbreak before taking it in for service.
