Thread: How does JBing affect apps?

  1. #1
    Cool How does JBing affect apps?
    Alright I have never jailbroken before so I have two questions;

    1. When I install the upcomming jailbreak, will it install a whole new firmware deleting all content I have right now? (Apps etc..)
    2. Is there any point of buying apps without JB? Meaning if there are ways to get apps for free should I just wait for the JB?

    Thing is I just came across this app and not sure if I need to wait for the JB to come out because it is a paid app. I just want to get this so bad . I really don't mind paying so what would you recommend?

    1. It patches the firmware, all your existing content should be fine.
    2. There are free and paid apps in Cydia. As far as getting free App Store apps that you normally have to pay for, that's against the forum rules to discuss and is illegal as well.
    Especially for a cheap $2 app, just buy it.
    If I somehow helped you, press thanks

    1) Yes it will take all your apps etc of it, but you back it up and it will restore it to the same it was, just adding the new features,
    2)Thank you Anniex423, I recommend waiting for the jb for obvious reasons. :P

    I think you should edit this post

    Were you not reading either the post above yours or the forum rules? Condoning piracy is not recommended here.

    I'd say wait until the jailbreak comes out. Somebody may have made a similar app that is free in cydia. If not, you can still buy the app from the app store after jailbreaking!

    I've heard people use that cracked app place to sample apps. I still think that is dishonest and I believe people should be rewarded for their creativity.

    Wait just one question, if I buy it I can redownload anytime for free correct? (If I accidentally delete it or something)
