The 4S is only jailbreakable on 5.0.1 and 5.1.1. If this phone qualifies for a restore to either, you can do that following the instructions on blog.iphone-dev.org but if not, you may simply have to wait for the latest jailbreak.

I don't know if she updated without hte computer, since honestly i'm surprised she updated at all =/ so there's definitely no way for me to jailbreak it without knowing?

If the iOS is 5.1.1 then yes, it can be jailbroken. Look up Absynthe or RedSn0w JB, plug in the phone, follow the prompts and you're all set.

If it's iOS6, you're screwed and don't look for a JB any time soon. Two of the hackers have said on Twitter multiple they're not working on it right now and that it'd be "a while" before iOS6 could be jailbroken.

Planetbeing has already stated that he has his iPhone 5 currently jail broken. He is waiting at least until 6.1 is released though to released the jailbreak to save some needed bugs.

.... and then we'll see iOS 6.1.1 not too long after the release of 6.1 just to fight against you rebels!
