Quick question regarding Jail Broken iPhones


Recommended Posts

It shouldn't screw up the phone, you'll just lose the jail break until the team that develops the JB software catches up and releases a new JB. For example I kept my 4S on 5.1.1 until the untethered JB version for iOS 6 was released. I then did the standard update to stock iOS 6 on iTunes with no issues at all (actually to iOS 6.1.2). I then Jailbroke the the phone and not having any issues now.


One other thing, you can always revert back to the stock iOS just by performing a full restore on iTunes. I've had to do that a couple of times when I needed to take the phone into the Apple Store - technically if you JB the phone you void your warranty, but if you revert back to the stock iOS before taking it in you'll be fine.

DON'T UPGRADE OTA. It won't work and you'll just have to do it on a computer after to fix it (though new Evasion upgrades disables the OTA function to protect you). It will break your phone until you do a restore at iTunes. Then of course you cannot return to 6.1.2 and therefore cannot jailbreak again.


Old thread but the conclusion of this one is unacceptable to any newbies viewing this.

    • I wish carriers did spectrum swaps as often as they did in the past. Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile could easily swap and fix this issue. AT&T can take the entire PCS A-block giving them a contiguous 15MHz as opposed to the split 10+5 they currently have, Verizon could take both the D and B block and keep the contiguous 20MHz they have now, and T-Mobile could take over the E,F, and C block which would give them a contiguous 30MHz with the G-block. I wouldn't be surprised if Verizon is the only holdout in this because this swap would benefit AT&T and T-Mobile but would leave them in a net neutral position as their 20MHz of PCS is already contiguous.
    • They have the intention, as the equipment they're deploying supports n26. The transaction has not yet happened, T-Mobile is still in control and using the spectrum on some Sprint keep sites.
    • Did they declare their intention to buy band 26 from T-Mobile. I know that they have the option to buy it but do they have the money or the intention to buy it? Are they leasing it right now?
    • Just cycled through here and there's a Sprint Keep Site within range with 25+26+41. 25 is still 10x10, while 41 is the same 10 MHz at the top of the band that I saw at the airport on Friday night. Speeds aren't great, but signal isn't bad, so my guess is that they turned up the power on the site vs. where it was before (B26 is -101 RSRP and I know the site nearest me is gone). Will be downtown for fireworks tonight, so will see how networks perform. I have mmW-enabled VZW and AT&T SIMs to play with.
    • I believe they have made a few attempts, but I don't think there has been a large scale effort so far.
