Ok, I've owned a iPhone since the iPhone 4 launch and of course then upgraded to the 4S on launch. Now I know the basics about Jailbraking, I think, which is that you get to customise your phone and possibly get any app for free ? I'm thinking about doing this but of course before I jump into it I'm hoping that someone can guide me though how to do it. *Now I think there is no jailbreak for iOS 5.1 and 4S yet so if this is true then any word on when it will be available ?* My questions if anyone can answer 1. What would you say are the basics steps before Jailbraking ? I assume you back up all data in iTunes ? Do all your settings get saved e.g when I jailbreak, will my high scores and saved progress still be on the iPhone apps afterwords ? Will all my other data be saved ? My contacts ? My notes ? My Calender ? Will I still have access to iTunes via the apps ? Will I still be able to update apps (heard someone mention this was not possible with jail broken apps ?) 2. When updating firmware, how do you back up all the files ? Do you still use iTunes ? 3. Can you plug a jail broken iPhone into iTunes ? 4. Once you update youre iPhone firmware, do you have to manually re-download all the apps after re-Jailbraking ? And do you then lose all your saved files and information ? I think that's all the questions for now. Would appriciate any help.
