I know that pressing this button on a jailbroken phone will put it in a boot loop but is there any other way to erase all the data on my iPhone 4S apart from doing it manually?
It's on 5.1.1 and unlocked using Gevey sim since it's on Sprint and I'm selling the phone so I need to delete all my data while preserving the jailbreak and unlock.

I don't know if the re restore will do this for ya. Never setup as new before using that its worth a shot thou.

DO NOT DO IT!! Once you hit that it'll wipe the phone and FORCE you to connect to itunes and update it to 6. whatever it is now.. Better to delete manually.. Yeah it sucks, but you won't loose the JB/unlock.. I was going to buy a 4 from a guy I work with and thats what he did.. It was on 5.3.3 IIRC, and he did the wipe on it, which forced him to connect to itunes after it wiped it and then updated it to the latest OS, loosing the JB, and there was no way of rolling it back out of it.. Obviously, I didn't buy it.. LOL

Hi Im am having the Same problem I have a iPhone 4S which was on iOS 6.1 with the evasion jailbreak. I pressed erase all content and settings and i left it for a while then turned it off and when I turned it back on it showed me the connect to iTunes screen so I did but iTunes is not letting me restore to iOS 6.1 or 6.1.2. Any help or ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks
