Quick question...I need to unjailbreak my son's phone 5..when I hit restore it says it want's to download an update and I have to click to "Agree to the terms" which I do but at the top of itunes it says it will take 2+ hours! Will it restore the phone once the update is done? I'm nervous to do this!!! Any input is very very appreciated.

Depending on your internet connection speed it could take that long... and it will restore after the download.

Unless you choose to restore as new, it should, but do an iTunes backup to be on the safe side. You will lose your jailbreak. Also, it should not take that long to restore the device unless Apple's servers are overloaded or your Internet connection is slow or bogged down.

The time Apple shows you is usually over inflated. Let us know if you need anything. No one likes to see a stressed out Mom :)
