    Hello. Just looking for a bit of advice. I've never jailbroken an iPhone before, but I'm debating it. Recently got an iP6 and have just got a bit bored of not being able to change themes etc.

    So, is it easy? Is it safe? Is it worthwhile? I've read it can have knock oneffects like making battery life worse?

    Easy? Yep Safe? Yea. You are the safest if you buy tweaks and don't risk the pirated ones. Battery life can depend on the tweaks you have, some might drain battery due to bugs possibly causing memory loss and some tweaks might just be power hungry. It totally depends on the apps you have. Themes can run done your battery if you have a lot of things in use on winterboard (theming tweak). I think you'll be fine. Just make sure when you do that you restore first if your last update was over the air as opposed to through iTunes on your computer.

    Is it easy to restore it? That was one of my thoughts on doing it. Can Apple tell you'd done it?

    Yes it's just a typical restore by hooking up to iTunes.

    No Apple can't tell as the restore removes all visible traces of the jail break.
