11-29-2012, 06:56 AM #1Manually Applying Cydia Tweaks In Order To Un-Jailbreak
I have a tethered jailbroken iphone 4 with ios 6 and have been making small mods via cydia and ifunbox. Is there a way to permanently apply cydia tweaks or themes to the phone so that I can unjailbreak it and just have it boot normally? I am capable of going into the file system and doing it that way if necessary. I have been unable to find how to do this via forum screening and google searching. If anyone knows how to manually apply these tweaks and keep them in please let me know. Thanks

It's not possible. For the tweaks to work, the iphone has to be jailbroken to utilize mobile substrate (which runs tweaks use to run)
For file system mods (images, strings, etc), the iphone has to be jailbroken to allow access to the file system. if you un-jailbreak without restoring, then it will stay how you left it. If you want to change anything again you will have to re-jailbreak.

ok great so it is then possible to un-jailbreak without restoring? if so how do you go about doing that? i'd like to do exactly as you said, make file system mods then unjailbreak so it stays permanent. thanks so much for the input!

What a twist of words. To unjailbreak you need to restore, no other way around.

Wanting to unjailbreak desperately!
Thanks for the reply, but I warn you: though I'm fairly technical, I fail to understand some of this stuff: 1. What's a DFU restore? 2. Does setup as new kill/disappear all legitimate helps/apps. For instance there's a help app (aside from it's mention of iPhone 5 (I have a 4s), it's very valuable in understanding most of the rest). You also had some text below the quote shown here which I didn't understand at all. Please be gentle, kind, OK?

To put the device into DFU, simply turn the phone off, hold power button for 3 seconds then hold home simultaneously with it until the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding on to home for about 15-20 seconds. The device will be set into DFU, iTunes will recognize that, and you may restore.
