    Default iphone is disabled- connect to itunes - I can't beleive there is NO answer anywhere!
    I got my daughter an iPhone 3g about 2 weeks ago. Already she has managed to mess it up. From what I read either she, or one of her friends, entered the wrong passcode to many times. She says she did it, and kept trying the passcode she knew it was, but it wouldn't work. Here are the details:
    It is an Iphone 3g with 3.1.3 jailbroken with Spirit. I jailbroke it myself, and changed the root password myself, and thus I know it. The wifi settings for my house are already stored in it, and it DOES connect to my home wifi (Sometimes). When I get it to connect I am able to ssh into the phone and do as I please with the filesystem. The problem is, that the ONLY so-called solution I have found is to delete a files in private/var/keychains and just deleting that file doesn't work.
    Ideally (and it will be quite hard to convince me that with full root access, I can't do it) I need to re-enable it, and delete the passcode. One more thing of note, iClarified password policy has been installed on the device. It is a policy that allows longer alpha numeric passcodes.

    So, how do I do this?

    Yea restore is the easiest to do. No real way to retrive the passcode that I know of.

    The best I can say is "iPhone browser" will do for you. You can find it free on the web... but itís only good for replacing, renaming, and adding - cant really change permission and all that. But there is a solution for that to, in cydia "ifile" app, very good! Its a paid app but worth it!
