hi,you didn't say which iPhone you have,I'm assuming its 4s as you mentioned warranty,you will need to specify which phone you have though.

Thanks soo much,

1) update your iPhone to 5.1.1 via iTunes or OTA.
2) you need to jailbreak with Absinthe 2.0.4 from here: greenpois0n.com
4) after jailbreaking you should install Mobile Substrate, respring, then install WinterBoard. Themes are pretty easy to find, just go to the "Sections" tab within Cydia and you'll see the category.
5) you will still have your warranty as long as you don't tell Apple tha you jailbroke. Before taking to Apple Store, restores SETUP AS NEW, and your good and they will never know. If you restore from a backup, they can be able to tell if you jailbroke.


There are 2 types of themes.
WinterBaord
DreamBoard.

DreamBoard is really heavy and I don't really recommend it...but that's up to you.

WinterBoard is far more stable...and to activate themes you have to open the app, tap Themes, select the themes, go back, and respring, or just press the home button and the themes will be activated.

Good luck.

You should restore and setup as new device before jailbreaking. Don't "Erase All Content and Setting".

After restore, setup phone til you get to the SpringBoard(home screen). One you can see your SprinBoard, don't do anything...just jailbreak with Absinthe.

Then restore your backup from iTunes if you wish.

No.
Anything toggled on in Settings> iCloud will be restored to your device always, even if you don't restore from backup (which I always recommend). Messages will be deleted if you don't restore from backup tho...along with call logs.

Backup in iTunes:

Plug in iPhone, open iTunes.
Right click on device name in left pane.
Click "backup iPhone"

SpringBoard is your home screen where all your app icons are.

Once you first open Cydia..will load, then your device will respring. Respringing is restarting SpringBoard without rebooting the phone.

Once Cydia resprings your device after you first open it, open it again and wait for it to completely load. It will take a little bit of time the first time. Just wait. You'll know when it's done.

After it fully loads, tap on the Search tab and search for Mobile Substrate. Install it.

Once it's done installing tap the Restart SpringBoard button and it will respring.

I agree 100%... But I have had no problems with Absinthe...

When I restore my phone very soon, I am not sure if I'll use redsn0w Absinthe, or CLI.

I may use Absinthe since it gave me such a nice stable jailbreak...redsn0w I already know works great most likely (even tho I haven't used it) because I have alway used redsn0w

Okay...I'm either going Absinthe or CLI...

Okay....I'm going CLI....and I'm gonna try to figure out what extra options the CLI has.

Huh...that was quick.
