Updating a jailbreak iphone
Well, when it comes to updating to a major version of i OS, it’s always recommended to factory wipe your i Phone to prevent any updating woes.A lot of users tend to update to a major version of i OS without wiping their devices first, and this usually invites various problem, like updating freezes, boot loops, etc.However, at least we know that an i OS 9 jailbreak is being worked on as we speak, so that’s certainly good news, but the biggest question is when it will be releasing, and that’s something we probably won’t know until it just randomly releases one day, which is usually the case for new jailbreaks.In other words, don’t be surprised to suddenly see an i OS 9 jailbreak randomly appear on your doorstep one day.Or will I retain them and just lose the jail break ?The backup will contain many preference files for various Cydia tweaks, but they're fine to leave since the actual tweaks won't be there (it's not jailbroken any more).
Luckily, the process to update to i OS 9 from a jailbroken i Phone isn’t any different than how you would update otherwise.
In any case, if you’ve officially decided that you’re updating to i OS 9 and are willing to lose your i OS 8 jailbreak, here’s how to update to i OS 9 from the i OS 8 jailbreak the right way.
Before you start the whole process of updating to i OS 9, it’s important that you back up your i Phone first and foremost so that if anything goes wrong, you won’t lose all of your apps and settings.
