Re: Can I backup a jailbroken iPhone to iTunes?
Hi All, brand new to this jail break thing and this site. Great forum from the small list I have time to read from so far and answered a few of my burning questions. I don't know anyone with a jailbroken device so Google has been it for me for building education and trust with Cydia.
As you know 7.1.2 came out yesterday, I would like to take the plunge and loose my Cydia Virginity to Pangu 1.1
So just a couple questions:
1/ Anyone see any issues with using Pangu, is she safe, can I trust her with my health? I heard about pirate software being installed but believe this is no longer an issue.
2/ Does an update invoke a restore (loose jailbrake)? ie 7.1.1 to 7.1.2
3/ So when we have to restore a phone we loose all the jailbrake apps, does that mean that anything stored is lost forever or is there a Cydia backup function? (with exception of apps that store data in "backup'able areas" as mentioned on this thread)
4/ Last question relating to batt consumption for apps. I was told by apple support I have a corrupted app which is sucking the life force out of my batt. Apples answer was to start from scratch which really Pxxx me off. Anyway my ph dies very quickly and I am always closing apps down, have removed gps location ability from all but a few necessary and deleted all apps which I don't really use with no success.
I went back to factory and used it for a few days and the damn thing lasts for ever I was so amazed and overjoyed, I ran torch, and played YouTube, left on a few gps apps, FB and every time it went to 1% before switching off and took quite a long time. So I agree there is a bad app or two.
My question is, can anyone recommend an app on Cydia that monitors the batt usage for individual apps? There maybe one on Apple store but I have not been able to find it.
Thanks in advance for any responses.
