    Hello,

    Am running under warranty and still have jailbroken 8.1.2 using TiaG on one condition that my warranty wont get void if i restore to my last backup using itunes on my computer. Please correct me if am wrong. Also, i would like to ask is there a way to backup my data eversince i have jailbroken my iphone 5S just like how we do using itunes ? Now that i have jailbroken, can i purchase apps from app store too ?

    You're fine. Just continue to backup your device as usual using iTunes. The jailbreak has no effect on your ability to use the App Store.

    I should add that in some cases a device restored from a backup of a jailbroken device will have artifacts of that jailbreak. However, restoring the device to factory settings (without applying such a backup) will make it presentable to Apple should any warranty needs arise.

    You have to sign in through Facebook or Google when you make purchases in Cydia. Purchased downloads can be reinstalled on new phones when you log in through that account. However, some don't ever get updated, so they aren't necessarily good forever unless you stay on the old firmware. Some developers charge for new versions of their software. Others can be reinstalled for free for years.

    I've had service performed twice at Apple store while jailbroken in the recent past. They were hardware issues, so was not likely going to be told my jailbreak caused my problems

    Was it under warranty ? And what hardware issues did you face after jailbreak ?

    Yes, warranty repairs, performed by Apple Genuis staff @ Apple Store while iPhone was jailbroken.
    Both were screen issues

    How would jailbreak create problems with your screen ?
    So, u went to the service centre by restoring your last backup before jailbreaking OR you have done factory restore ?

    The jailbreak didn't cause any problems with his phones. He had cracked screens. His point was that the jailbreaking didn't void the AppleCare+ warranty and he even took it in jailbroken for the repair work. I still recommend restoring to factory settings before taking it in just to be safe. Taking it in jailbroken doesn't work for everyone. Some people get turned away until they restore. You can apply your backup when you get home.

    Log out of iCloud, do a hard reset and then log back in and enable it.

    TaiG is for 8.x and won't work with his firmware. He can jailbreak with Pangu for 7.x. There is also Pangu for 8.x. Make sure he downloads the correct version.

    Pangu for 7.x:

    Hanging/locking up: Please post a list of your installed packages. You may have some that are incompatible.
    SwipeSelection: Remove SwipeSelection, do a hard reset and then reinstall it.
