    And will jailbreaking my iPhone make my iPhone slower or something? Jailbreaking has little to Non effect on the speed of the iphone, but acually there are some tools that can make it faster but be careful not to install to many Mobile substrate things.

    Beware: If you jailbreak it, to unjailbreak it you have to restore it, and itunes will give an error message 1015. You have to use a program called irecovery to be able to get your phone to turn back on.

    iTunes only gives you a 1015 error when trying to downgrade the firmware. Just doing a simple restore is no problem. Jailbreak away. Use spirit
