    I just realized that the people that are purchasing the Apple Watch are gonna have to upgrade to 8.2 which means losing their jailbreak:(

    When are the following lottery numbers going to hit? 12-11-10-09-08

    Nobody can answer that question because it's a silly one. LOL

    When the jailbreak for iOS 8.2 comes, I bet there will be a posting in the MacRumors Jailbreaks and iOS Hacks forum. ;-)

    ----------

    I'm not interested in Apple Watch in the least, but I thought about that as well.

    Bummer for those who want the Apple Watch and want to JB, but like every version in history, a jailbreak will come, sooner or later.

    The one thing that could be fun with Apple Watch is the potential that exists if you jailbreak it. I can think of some fun uses for it.

    No kidding, right?

    This is why jailbreaking should be made more difficult, haha

    The chinese devs seemed pretty confident about future jailbreaks. But it's only been 24 hours. Gotta give them some time.

    So would be safe for me to stay on 8.2 beta for now?

    There was never a jailbreak for 8.1.3 was there? I'm staying on 8.1.3 in hopes that a jailbreak will be available for it first.

    Usually they aim for the highest available iOS version, sometimes it is backward compatible with lower versions, but not always.

    Staying on 8.1.3 doesn't hurt as long as you upgrade to 8.2 when a 8.2.x is about to be released.

    I'm currently jail broken on 8.1.2, and if I upgrade to 8.2, does it "undo" the JB and go back to stock? Has anyone tried this?

    I'm actually hoping it does so I can go back to stock lol (JB is great don't get me wrong; I'd just like to go back for various reasons).

    Countless users over the years have upgraded and removed their jailbreak. I just did it a week or so ago in moving to 8.1.3.

    This is why an update and restore is always advised before seeking Apple service - because it removes the jailbreak.

    Even if you restore and upgrade to a version that IS jailbreakable, doing so still removes the jailbreak. You'd have to re-jailbreak if you wanted to be jailbroken again.

    So…yes, 'someone' has tried it and it will 'undo' the jailbreak.

    Thanks. So update to undo JB but then I'm not clear on the next part. When you say restore, do you mean wipe the phone and then restore from backup or restore as new?

    Then, if that IS what you mean, next question is, does restoring as new mean I lose my info (ie. text history, contacts, etc?).

    Thanks!

    as far as I know if you do an iCloud backup it does not include things like cache of your jailbreak tweaks etc (someone correct me if I am wrong) so you can wipe your phone and then restore your iPhone from an iCloud backup and it's completely free of any jb stuff. if you restore from a backup on your Mac however it does remove the jb itself but it leaves traces like preferences behind, u just can't have access to them anymore cuz the jb is gone

    the Apple watch is not worth losing my JB over. Nothing is.

    Totally worth it to me. All I do on jailbreak now is play emulators.

    LOL... well you're in the minority.

    ----------

    A new iPhone with new features might be worth it, but otherwise, I agree. LOL

    I use my jailbreak to get rid of the highly unappreciated (by me) colors of iOS 7/8 - as well as tweak my system the way I like it. Stock doesn't cut it for me.

    Not an iOS 7/8 fan.
