    Default erase all data option... question about how long it takes...
    hello, i have a small issue, i have an iphone 4 fact unlocked that i boguht from apple a few days ago... anyways i was messing around trying to enable facetime and i screwed up the mms settings anyways, i tried to do a restore on itunes and kept getting a 3194 error, so i decided to go into the iphone phone settings and do the erase all data from there...

    long story short how long does the erase take? its been going on for about about 1 1/2 hours now, and the progress bar hasn't moved a pixel.
    thanks

    You'll need to restore manually in iTunes. Do you know if you have your 4.3.3 shsh's saved?

    well im totally passed that restore part, i took a risk and went into the phone gen options and did the erase all... now its erasing... but it's past a 2 hrs now... and the progress bar didnt move yet, just wondering how long this takes.

    i dont mind not having a jailbreak, the only jb apps i used was probably just bitesms, i can def wait out til the next jailbreak even if restore lets me goto 4.3.4

    When using the erase all in settings it completely puts the phone in a bootloop meaning you have to restore the phone with iTunes.

    After downloading ifaith. Dump 4.3.3 shsh blobs
    Make a signed ipsw
    Put phone in pwned dfu
    Restore using the ipsw u made.

    Wil give error 1013 most prolly
    Download fix recovery from tinyumbrella blog.
    Run it.
    Activate the phone.
    Jailbreak or not is upto u.
