    Once you sync to your brother's laptop to get his music, you will have to continue to sync to his computer or you'll lose his music. It will overwrite any music/apps you currently have on there (but they don't belong to you anyway). Syncing won't lose your jailbreak though. Just make sure you do NOT upgrade the firmware or you will lose the jailbreak and unlock.
