    Anyone new to jailbreaking, this thread will be of vital importance to you, as im tired of seeing people still using tethered methods and horrendous homebrew tools

    You have two legitimate options in terms of your jailbreak:
    Redsn0w, by the dev team (Recommended, fully automated)
    Redtool, by Chris Stroud (Slightly more manual, but with a simple to use interface)

    I do not mention the tool Quickfreedom, as it is no longer supported by its creator and has been reported to cause major issues when jailbreaking.

    Those are the two best tools right now, with redsn0w above redTool because of how simple it is to use, and you don't have to install LibUSB.
    But redTool has a ton of features that redsn0w/QuickPwn doesn't have and will never have.
