    I'm on 2.0.2 un-JB and i'm thinking of JBing. I want to know a few things.

    1) How safe is it? Are there serious risks with quickpwn.

    2) Is the process likely to go wrong and i'm going to have to restore?

    3) Anything else i should know?

    Cheers!

    Its pretty simple, if anything does go wrong though, you can easily restore. Just follow the instructions.

    Well, depends on how lucky you are. Hehe, just kidding...

    It's really easy to use, but you have to be quite accurate and calm to do the whole process.

    If you make a mistake, then it's reversible simply by a Restore. If that's not possible, then there still is a Forced Restore.

    But these things are not happening to people like you and me. There has to be some problem with the device itself for something like this to come up...

    There are no actual risks, except for missing some seconds while counting for the manual Forced Restore mode QuickPwn wants you to get your device into.

    Everything else is simply code executed in your device...

    Just put it in DFU and run QuickPwn. And I'm pretty sure if you screw up, you don't need to restore.

    Its pretty safe, but when your doing it make sure to follow the instructions exactly, and worst case, restore or force restore

    1) How safe is it? Are there serious risks with quickpwn. -Nope, as long as you do it right, there's no risks

    2) Is the process likely to go wrong and i'm going to have to restore? -Nope, as long as you do it right.

    3) Anything else i should know? -If I were you I just wait a couple weeks for 2.0.3, but that's just my opinion.

    Cheers! -Indeed.
