    Hi I just registered to this forum and have a couple of questions in regards to jailbreaking.

    I am running ios version 9.1(13B143). I actually didn't know that there was a newly released jailbreak for this version it was pretty random for me to check since I always wanted to jailbreak my phone just to play brave heart since I saw a friend play it a while back but never got around to jailbreaking.

    Anyways...

    I was watching this video...



    And I got stuck at the part where he said you had to sign out of your iCloud account (if you had/have one)
    Which unfortunately I do.

    But when I press on the sign out button it says on my phone that it will delete and erase everything in my iCloud - which I prefer not to do, which would mean that I wouldn't be able to continue with the jailbreak right?

    Is there any other way of jailbreaking 9.1 without having to do something to iCloud? Because I need to have everything I have there saved on my phone - has important things there.

    Thanks,

    K

    Make a backup of your phone, restore contents after jailbreaking.

    Are there ways of jailbreaking even though you have notes from iCloud drive saved, and still being there after you jailbreak? If so how do you revert back to that retroactive status?

    I don't know about the 9.1 jailbreak, but unless things have changed what they mean is sign out of Find My iPhone.

    As to the backup @mikecwest mentioned you can do this two ways. Backup to iCloud, or backup to iTunes. Then logout of iCloud (or Find My iPhone).

    Jailbreak. When done, restore from your iCloud or iTunes backup. All your data that was present before will be there again.

    I'm pretty sure when it says that it will erase everything from iCloud it just means it erases it from the phone, not from the cloud. So yes, your notes would get removed from the phone when you sign out on the phone, but then after you jailbresk, you can sign in again and it will sync with the cloud and restore your notes to the phone

    What does this mean?

    How do I know if my iphone is is 32 bit or 64 bit, or is it because I downloaded itunes x32 instead of x64?

    Thanks.

    It means if you have a 32-bit device on 9.1, even though the new jailbreak is for 9.1 you cannot jailbreak.

    The 9.1 jailbreak is currently for 64-bit devices only.

    That's the 5s and above. The iPhone 5, which according to your screen cap seems to be your device, is 32-bit.

    Has nothing to do with the computer, just the device itself.

    I see, so this whole time I thought I had an iphone 5s, but I really had an iphone 5.

    so the 5 is only 32 bit then right?

    meaning I can jailbreak?

    The 5 is only 32bit and that means you cannot jailbreak.

    No. You cannot jailbreak 32-bit devices on iOS 9.1.

    It's very easy to tell if you have a 5 or a 5s. If your home button has Touch ID you have a 5s. If it does not, you have a 5.
