Updating jailbroken phone
Therefore, we would be backing up the phone to a computer using i Tunes.
To get started, simply plug your i Phone to the computer and launch i Tunes.
The phone will reboot and complete the flashing process in recovery.
After the phone reboots, it will give be as good as new.
However, that’s completely up to you how you want to proceed.
Apple’s official document regarding jailbreaking and its ill effects nowhere states that a device requires an update prior to repair.
The file download size will be bigger when compared to the usual updates that are released though.
That’s why we strongly, almost emphatically, recommend that you do not do so. Should you be unable to use your i Phone due to an unauthorized software modification, its repair will not be covered under the warranty.“ While this text isn't included in the current i Phone warranty in the UK, we generally think Apple Store employees take a dim view of fixing jailbroken phones.
Note: Please turn off the pass-code lock and Find my i Phone from the settings before you proceed with restore.
The phone will automatically download the new flashable software from the online source and you will be able to see the progress in i Tunes.
After the initial setup like language and Wi-Fi network to connect to, it will ask you if you would like to set it up as a new phone or restore a backup.
Tap the option and connect the phone to the computer.
