Thread: iPhone 4S Restore

    Default iPhone 4S Restore
    Hello!

    I'm new to these forums and I have a question. My iPhone 4S is running iOS 5.1.1 jailbroken using RedSn0w, but the phone has a dead pixel on the screen. I will be going to the local apple store to return it and get a new one. My problem is I know you have to restore the iPhone using iTunes to 6.0.1 so it will become unjailbroken. When I get my new phone, is there a way I can restore the new iPhone to my current jailbreak and firmware? Will restoring to 6.0.1 on a different computer then with the new phone restoring using my current computer with the backup that has 5.1.1 work? or will I have to hope I am lucky and the phone is at 5.1.1 out of the box? Thank you in advance for your replies !

    If you going to the store and they gonna replace it. It will probably be on 6.0 and you will just have to wait for a jailbreak like the rest of us
