Jailbreak iPhone 4s with latest firmware

My top button stuck and cannot fix it.  The actual button broke inside.  

I'm tired of using disability functions, and like to program side buttons as sleep button.  I heard only jailbreak would do that.  After a quick research I see that 4s with latest firmware 6.1.3 hasn't been jailbroken as of yet.  True?

Is there an app or other way I can do it without jailbreaking?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure where you are located.  If in the UK, I know that the cost of an out of warranty button fix is £119.  This is direct from an Apple retail store.  They actually take in the broken handset, and supply you a refurbished one.  The new one is warranted for 90 days.

Not the answer to your question, but bit of info should you wish to get it fixed.

  I'm in US. Apple replaces your phone for $200.  I'm not paying for that.

  Love your handle! What does determine jailbroken or not.  People tried that and unsuccessful?  Why never will be?  Why do you think iOS7 will be?

Replacing the button is not that easy.  I opened up the broken iPhone and just to take off that piece I had to undo the phone motherboard and all components. That small button looked like a crab with tiny small wires connecting to different modules.
My phone is insured for such things, it would be better if you had too.

You might have to get a new phone.
