    I know that if they keep it up to date that is some bit of a way since the JBs take a little bit to come out but is there a way to make it not be able at all?

    The reason I want to do this is I am giving my sister an iPad and her husband is mildly computer literate and likes to screw things up. Happened with her nook tablet, he rooted it and bricked it. Bricked 2 of her phones, etc, etc. Anyways, I want to make it so he cant jailbreak it and screw it up. She wouldnt even know how to take advantage of any of the jailbreak stuff anyways so it wont help her.

    Is there a way to make this happen?

    Make him give you a deposit before giving it to your sister.

    Dont worry about it, if the ipad for some reasons gets "bricked" just plug in the pc/mac and restore with itunes.

    Exactly.
    No matter how bad he screws it up he can always plug it to iTunes and restore it.

    the issue with that is my sister is not the most computer literate, so she wouldnt be able to do that.

    ----------



    you can think whatever you want, but when the device will not operate and will not restore, that is fair enough to call it a brick.

    ----------

    That is the issue, he wont do that. He will just keep trying tweaks and things to fix whatever he goofed up. he is generally an idiot that thinks he knows how to work with electronics.

    The answer is to wait for 6.1.3 and update it

    No, otherwise Apple would have already done so.

    How about you jailbreak it yourself and use something like SBSettings to hide Cydia?


    He won't be able to jailbreak it again and he (possibly) won't be able to figure out where Cydia went.

    Both the jailbreaking process itself and restoration are fairly idiot-proof.

    Put a password on it. You cannot jailbreak the phone without a password.

    Sounds like you love your brother in law:D
    Best bet would be to either not give it to her at all or just let it go and don't worry about it. If he screws it up its up to her, she married him and has to deal with him. I'd avoid him if you don't want to deal with his bs.

    So not tell the person he's giving it to as a gift what the password is? Yeah...makes sense. :/

    Just wait a few weeks for 6.1.3 to drop and then give it to her.

    You should consider telling your sister that she needs to have a talk with her husband. Because the only thing he is doing is not only causing frustration by messing with her devices, but he is also doing financial damage. These are $200-500 devices that cannot be replaced every few months.

    What happens the day he messes up the next phone and then she can't afford to buy another one or pay a termination fee to move to pre-paid/etc? That's a lot of money to be blowing down the drain just because he's bored.

    Don't give her the iPad. It'a like giving a toy to a kid who lets the dog run off with it to the backyard. You're wasting your money on someone who's not going to even bother to take care of their belongings. If she was really that concerned, she could just hide her stuff away out of his reach.
