    I used to root android devices but this is my new iPhone 6 plus. I upgraded to the iOS 9 beta. I want to know if I jailbreak, will I still be able to receive OTAs without problems, and I am using Verizon 128 gigabyte version of iPhone 6 plus. I don't know if my boot loader has to be unlock or not to jailbreak. Is it possible to unlock the Verizon iPhone 6 plus boot loader? I know Verizon locked down boot loaders on android phones. What file manager for rooted iPhones will you recommend for the iPhone? I want a good file manager that is in active development and not abandon ware. I using Microsoft Windows to do jail break because I don't have a Apple computer yet.

    You'll have to downgrade to iOS 8.4, the current software. As far as I know there's no jailbreak for iOS 9 beta so far.

    Beta versions of iOS have built in expiry dates, which makes developing and releasing jailbreaks for them quite limited in usefulness. Beta jailbreaks are more of use in preparation for jailbreaking the public release version.

    The jailbreaking process in itself cannot damage your iPhone. You may cause problems if you install tweaks and apps from other than reputable repos.

    Jailbreak disables or prevents OTA iOS updates from downloading in the background which is a good thing. If you follow instructions to the letter you will have a successful jailbreak with no issues.
