Hi there Andretti,

I am not sure about the consequences of re Jailbreaking a device without restoring / removing the current jailbreak, BUT it is strongly advised against doing just that!

If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with your current jailbreak, rather do a fresh restore and re jailbreak your device.

When using Evasi0n you will get a prompt notifying you it is not necessary to re jailbreak this device.

The warnings are there for a reason! Expect corruption would be my guess...

I know I did not supply you with the insider answers that you are looking for. You are welcome to view the two links in the first paragraph on this page.

Kind regards

Dr Hoffman

PS: in reply to your last comment. (The brick wall is there for a reason. Don't test the strength of it.). If the developers of Evasi0n put it in place they know something you don't want to experience I would guess!!!
