    Default [1.1.2 OTB] Syncing Jailbroken iPhone with new computer

    Hello

    My stupid laptop (a PC I have to add) died on me. Harddrive is dead. I have a 1.1.2 OOTB which I jaibroke on that laptop.

    Good news is that this is an excuse for me to finally get an iMac.

    So if I sync my jailbroken iphone to a new computer with the latest iTunes, will it try to restore, or meddle with my Jailbroken iPhone ? I don't think so, but I just want to make sure before I sync it to a new computer.

    A forum search revealed no postings of a similar nature.

    thanks !

    It will ask you to confirm whether you want to clear all iPod content in your iPhone. If yes, it sync with the new computer, if no, it refuses to sync.

    Thanks. I'm aware of the iPhone music content, but what about the virgin iTunes attempting to recognize my iPhone as 'jaibroken' or running different software ?
    Does anyone know ?

    I think wether the phone is jail broken or not will have no effect on the syncing process of the new iMac. I am not sure so its best to get second opinion on this one.

    Syncing your iphone with a new mac will not make a difference to a jailbroken phone. It will not try to restore. It'll simply create (after you set up as new iphone) a new library for you

    Hope that helps

    One last question:

    Last night I tried syncing my IPOD that I had set-up on my now-dead PC to my Mac. My Mac refused my iPOD, stating that it would need to restore and reformat my iPOD because it was windows-based.

    So my question is: If I installed my iPHONE on my now-dead PC, isn't it Windows based and wouldn't it refuse a MAC sync or restore it ?

    Theoretically it should. I just don't want to plug in my iPhone until I'm certain that it won't brick it.

    Thanks for your help thus far.
