I'm not sure if I should or not , I'm not an apple fan but my son has been wanting an apple tablet forever so I bought him one for Christmas , he is 6 years old . I am an android person , so I not what the pros and cons of rooting are , as for apple , I know what 1 of the pros would be as far as jail breaking goes , but I do have a few questions as I am not familiar with apple . 1. Can I back reset it for when a new IOS comes out , I will be able to update it ? Like with android , just reload the stock rom , update , then re-root. 2. How do I stop the shit that is loaded onto the mini , from appearing on my wifes phone ? 3. If I jail break the tablet , will it affect my wifes account with apple ?
