Thread: Gotcha's to know before Jailbreaking?

    Question Gotcha's to know before Jailbreaking?
    I'm looking at finally Jail breaking my IPhone 3GS. Are there any gotchas that I should know about before hand that could potentially cause me problems, such as a bricked phone or a phone that wouldn't be updatable?

    For example, let's say I JB the phone, and iTunes wants to install new software. Will installing it hose my phone? Or will it simply mean I have to JB again?

    I see another poster here (http://modmyi.com/forums/general/687...jailbreak.html) talking about some ECID SHSH file - if said file goes missing could that cause problems for me?

    Also will it still sync normally using iTunes?

    Thanks

    Welcome to MMi. Never install a new update when it releases if you want to keep JB. Wait till a team releases a JB. Also take a look at this article Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik) and add the route to your Hosts file so your SHSH saved on Saurik's server in case you need to downgrade in the future. Installing a update from Apple will not break your phone but you will lose the JB. Everything syncs perfectly fine with iTunes.
