    Due to the fact that I need 8.2 for the watch...I think I'm going to unjailbreak now...before I get too attached to my tweaks.

    I don't have many and only two that really matter

    Springtomize (for the five icon dock)
    Lock-info (my second favourite tweak of all time, behind BiteSMS)

    The longer you have something, the harder it is to lose it.

    So....8.2 here I come....maybe

    I know the feeling, got rid of my jailbreak the day 8.2 came out.

    They will update the jailbreak eventually for 8.2 :)

    I'm sure they will...only a matter of time...but once you've had something you're used to...it's tough to let it go

    Sadly there are tweaks we can never go back to, unless they are picked up again.

    I restored to 8.1.3 a week ago, losing my jailbreak temporarily (until a new jailbreak is out) but losing biteSMS for good.

    Being stock now, I am really missing Bite.

    I haven't had Bite ever since I went to iOS8, so I'm not concerned about losing something I haven't had for ages, but I will miss LockInfo

    What was your process for removing the JB? I'm currently 8.1.2 and need to upgrade to 8.2 also. I want to completely remove the JB including preference files but I don't want to start fresh, I want to restore from backup.

    what I've always done is a complete restore via itunes, set up as new phone and then restore from back up. This does sometimes does put a few JB stuff back (carrier name is one I think) but nothing major

    Backup to iCloud or iTunes first, and then click the restore button within iTunes.

    As long as you have a successful backup, everything will go back to the way it was, just minus the JB stuff.

    I did it kind of wish I would have waited for the watch but running the beta 8.3 now so I guess its all good.

    Many people will unjailbreak for the 8.2 update

    How's 8.3 working for ya and what device? I'm thinking about unjailbreaking my 6 Plus to try out 8.3 as I heard it runs more fluid than past releases.

    I'm on the 6 Plus and haven't noticed any issues with 8.3. I want to say it feels smoother but my device seems to run pretty good either way.
