06-13-2013, 04:36 PM #1Does "Reset All Settings" break jb?
iPhone 5, 6.1.2 jb
I've got some heating problems and the headphone jack suddenly does not work. Was working yesterday just fine, suddenly today, it doesn't. Did all the tricks, swabbed out the jack port with a Q-Tip, canned air, powered off and restarted, put the earbud jack in and out several times, etc. Nothing works. Now I read to try Reset All Settings. If I do that, will it break the jb?
Also, since this is a hardware issue, and still under the 1 year warranty, what are your experiences that an Apple Store will fix it? I remember last year (or two?) I took in my jb iPod Touch 3G, it was obvious it was jbroken, it was for a hardware issue, and no problem, they replaced it for free.
I've read online that some people with this issue of the headphone jack not working, they insist on doing a restore at the Apple Store. From what I've read, if I want to keep my jb, I don't want them to do that, right?
At any rate, "Reset All Settings" on a jb, up or down?

Do not do the reset, it will corrupt your firmware.

OK, thanks to the both of you for saving my jb phone! Will seek other remedies, I guess.
So, I'm assuming that I also do not allow Apple Store to restore my phone?

I don't know, 2k1, after reading some of the comments and some of the problems a few are having, I'm a little leery of this.

"Reset all settings" basically says it all.
It resets "all" settings. Which means it might even update.
In that case, it will break your JB.
