My iPhone is jailbroken, and it got cracked and it didn't work anymore so 2 months later I picked up my iPhone and I forgot the password. It is 6 digit and I'm not sure how to remove the password, I heard you could remove a password if its jailbroken, luckily it is, here's some details
iPhone 6 128gb Gold
iOS9.0.1 Pangu Jailbroken (I think its 9.0.1)
Please help me, there is 5,000+ photos on there and I would die to loose it all. And no, I can't restore after backup since I ****ed up the backup, and I can't backup anymore. Any ideas on how to remove password without loosing data on a jailbroken iDevice? Thank you so much. I'll even pay a hundred bucks just to get back in. I know my iCloud on there and I can confirm its mine, so you don't think its stolen.

Take it to Apple with proof of purchase and your ID. They may be able to help you. They may not.

Or remember the passcode.
Really think they will help someone with a jailbroken iPhone? It breaks the warranty

It used to.

Not any more.

Also, defeating a security measure is not a warranty issue.
Alright thank you, I'll try that tomorrow morning, any ideas besides that? SSH? Brute force a jailbroken one? Ideas?

Other than a DFU mode restore which would do exactly what you don't want, plus additionally prompt you for your Apple ID credentials, no.

There have been a few bugs discovered over time that have allowed some limited access to a device but I am not aware of the details of how to do that. Regardless, it's not a proper accessing of the device and therefore is somewhat limited.

But other than bugs, there is no specific way I know of to defeat a security measure.

PS. Be prepared for Apple to tell you no. Not because of your jailbreak, but just because this seems to be a hit or miss thing. You may have to ask for higher level assistance.

Can a repair shop or something do something that could remove password

Since a little before October 2015.

Apple now has to prove that a jailbreak caused the issue you are bringing the device in for.
that's exactly how it is with new cars & aftermarket parts so it makes complete sense. as in if you bring your car in for a non working ac they can't blame an aftermarket exhaust as the problem. there's actually a law on it.

Try, "AbCd1234" (without the quotation marks). It's my personal passcode and perhaps by some stroke of luck, you shared the same code as me.
