    Hi everyone

    I'm new to the jail break world. Used evasi0n to jailbreak my iPhone 5 and loving it so far. My question is
    • do I continue backing up my iPhone through iTunes?
    • will restoring from any backup get rid of the jailbreak?
    • does restoring from a backup made after jail breaking have any effect on the phone?

    Thanks a lot :)

    1. Yes, you can continue backing up exactly the same way you were before.

    2. Any sort of restore (whether setting up as new or restoring from a backup) will undo the jailbreak.

    3. In my experience, I haven't had any issues restoring from a backup made after jailbreaking.
