Thread: Will You Be Keeping Your Jailbreak or Updating to iOS 8.2 to Use the Apple Watch? [POLL]

  1. #1
    Default Will You Be Keeping Your Jailbreak or Updaing to iOS 8.2 to Use the Apple Watch? [POLL]


    Apple released iOS 8.2 to the public yesterday immediately following the 'Spring Forward' special event where the Apple Watch's pricing and availability was revealed officially. iOS 8.2 is a required component for those that want to purchase and use the Apple Watch, and as it's well known, iOS 8.2 is not jailbreakable at this point in time.

    Because the iOS 8.2 update is a required component to use the Apple Watch, many will be forced to update to iOS 8.2 if they purchase one of Apple's new wearable wrist devices. This unfortunately comes with the negative side effect of losing your jailbreak, if you have one, or the ability to jailbreak until a new jailbreak tool is released to the public.

    Many who are loyal to the jailbreak community will also choose to sit tight on iOS 8.1.2, or another jailbreakable firmware, until an iOS 8.2 jailbreak does surface; we are interested in just how many of you are going to camp it out with your jailbreak and how many of you are going to jump ship to the iOS 8.2 update to use the new Apple Watch when it's available.

    We've included a poll in the forum version of this post at this link where you can leave your vote. (You must be looking at the desktop version of the Web site to see the poll.) We look forward to seeing how the numbers lean!

    I don't see the need of a jailbreak since 8.0 for me since most tweak that I used are now a part of iOS 8.

    Plus I already updated to 8.2 cause Apple Watch>jailbreak imo

    The Apple watch is not available until the 24 April - that over a month away. There may well be a jailbreak for IOS 8.2 before that date. I think this article is a little premature!

    Nah. Jailbreak >>>>>>> apple watch. Just invest in a good dumb watch. I personally look at my phone for the time and emails etc. I only wear a watch on special occasions

    That's your opinion for me the apple watch is more worth it. Plus like I said I don't really need a jailbreak anymore.

    We want to know what everyone's opinions are right now on whether or not yesterday's Apple Event was powerful enough to sway people to update. So there's no such thing as premature .

    But if a jailbreak comes out for iOS 8.2, that would be awesome!

    I just hope Pangu or some reliable developer can find an exploit for another jailbreak, I read somewhere that Apple patched a lot of the vulnerabilities that made jailbreaking possible.

    Yes they did, and with yesterday's public release, they patched even more.

    8.2 + Jailbreak + Apple Watch = JOY! But if there is no jailbreak for 8.2 there is no joy. Jailbreak>watch.

    Was forced to update after testing out the Upscale tweak which ruined my phone...

    I don't get why ppl complain about the apple watch, if you don't like it don't buy it simple. I will be buying one, not just too look at the time but feel when I get notified or a call since I always miss them

    I have been on 8.2 for a couple weeks now. A jailbreak really isn't that important anymore like it was back in the days of say ios 4/5/6. iOS 7 added in so many things that people jailbroke for that it almost made it obsolete at the time. Same with ios 8 taking in even more. So I'm sticking with 8.2 because by the time the apple watch will be out I'm sure there will be a jailbreak for 8.2

    Exactly my thoughts I don't need a jailbreak anymore! iOS 8 to me is perfect all the tweaks I used to need are in ios 8!

    Not updating. I won't care about an apple watch until it's worth it - probably 3+ generations down the road. Certainly not before when they can make one that's solar powered.

    Besides that I'll be getting an Apple watch, my phone has started getting really hot lately. I'd rather not lose my tweaks, but sometimes it'll even get too got to hold.
