How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hey guys! I am planning to jailbreak my iphone. Considering it my first time, i was completely unaware that it is not recommended to update over-the-air. AND CRAP, i just did that afew days ago. What will happen if i jailbreak it even though its OTA updated to ios 6.1, what are the negative effects, or there is none.

If the side effects are not too bad i'll probably just jailbreak. Please help me, thanks .

  1. connect device to latest iTunes
  2. click backup
  3. click restore
  4. click restore from backup
  5. done

Can't be too hard to follow.

I heard the side effects is that i cant downgrade. But why the hell will we need to downgrade? AND. uhm after i restored its still 6.1 right? Whats the point of restoring ._. or will it change to an itune updated version?

It will still be 6.1. Full iTunes restore may give you a chance to rerestore to 6.1 in case you mess up (which you will most likely do) and jailbreak again even if apple release a newer firmware which blocks the exploit used for the current jailbreak.
