    Default Evasi0n and apple software update::: does it not check when jailbroken?
    hi all!

    can someone please confirm for me if when you check for a software update on your iphone that it just spins without checking and if this is because im on the jailbreak. just wondering if this is a failsafe so as not to accidently update.

    when i check for updates it just continues to spin. where as on my ipad not jailbroken the update shows up right away,


    PLEASE CONFIRM... THANKS!

    That's correct. As part of the evasi0n JB the update feature has been disabled...to avoid losing your jailbreak. Should be fine via iTunes...

    You will never want to update via your iDevice as per checking software update or otherwise known as "OTA" ( over the air) the jailbreak Devs have said this can cause issues and updating via restore in iTunes is the preferred method.

    Thus why Software Update has been disabled
