    Hi guys!

    I am thinking about jailbreak my iPhone.
    If I do so and maybe in some months a iOS 8.2 will be released and I want to update. Have I to delete/wipe everything or can I make u backup and update without jailbreak?
    Would it be possible to update without data loss when a jailbreak is out for a newer iOS version? Or do jailbreakers stuck on a iOS version?

    You can just update through iTunes but it is not recommended. Your other space will be populated with all your jailbreak data and it is much better to start from a clean restore (no backups unless you have a pre-jail broken one). You "can" do it, it's just advised against. And obviously updating will make you lose your jailbreak.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Do a backup.
    Then plug in to itunes and hit restore.
    It will bring it up the latest stock ios version. Then you can restore from backup and put all your stuff back.
