    Worked on my iPad 4. Took several several tries, and some goofing around with it… But was a success in the end.
    My 4S however, keeps either giving me a 0A error in Pangu, or a “restore failed” on the phone screen…

    I did not do an OTA but an iTunes 9.0.2 update. Deleted any leftover profiles. iCloud and Apple ID is off/signed out… I’m running out of ideas…

    I’m a 6+ user. I’d like to know what are the risks of jail breaking an iPhone? And is it reversible? And above all, is it worthy?

      Basically you gain root access to your iPhone. It will be more vulnerable in theory, if someone really wants to do something bad on your phone. That’s the only trade off for more functionality that Apple does not allow you to access. It is reversible, you can unjailbreak by restoring or semi-restoring the phone. Definitely worth it as you can just have tons of cool stuff running on your phone such as theming.
