Selling i4 With Jailbreak Question
Hey everyone. I've ordered the 4S so I've got my i4 sold. The guy wants me to leave the JB on it. I realize I'll need to go in and delete my email and password keeper app and banking app. Are there any security risks associated with leaving Cydia on my phone ?

I have sold iPhones on ebay in the past and I never sell them as jailbroken. The reason is that if I jailbreak it, I have changed the phone in some way. I can easily see a buyer holding me responsible for anything that they don't like about the way the jailbroken iPhone runs or if it is not stable or whatever. Jailbreaking a phone is something the end-user should do. Sell a phone factory-stock- completely wiped clean then anything done to it by the buyer after that is their issue.
You are making the right decision!

Now, if he has already sold the phone as jailbroken and then restores it and the buyer wanted a jailbroken phone then the seller is on the hook for that.
