Unlock Jailbroken iPhone 5 on iOS 8 knowing the passcode.


iMore Question

Hello there.
Earlier this day I found my old iPhone 5 which I've been looking for, for a while now. I decided to charge it to unlock it and recover some valuable data I had on it, but when it finally booted I happened to have totally forgotten the old 4 digit password, I tried and tried till I block it "iPhone is disabled, connect to iTunes" is the message that now appears on the screen... After all this sad adventure I also happened to remember the passcode from nowhere...
My question is:
Is there a way to unlock it knowing the passcode and being the iPhone jailbroken?
Info: iPhone 5 16gb, iOS 8, Pangu Jailbreak with Cydia installed. I had zeppelin installed and I can see the Assasin's Creed icon on the top left corner which makes me think the iPhone isn't wiped yet.
Thank you all for your precious time and help.

I've never even thought of that happening, some ones erase your data...why are you using a jailbraak as some members won't support the issue if you do (though I haven't seen the rules so I don't know)

Did you get the data off the phone at least
