Thread: Best way to "format" the iPhone?

    Default Best way to "format" the iPhone?
    I was wondering if someone could give me some advice.

    I'm looking for the best method of wiping my iPhone completely clean. I want to remove EVERYTHING from it and reinstall the OS.

    Something similar to formatting a hard drive. I want the original file structure back.

    Thanks for the reply, will the restore even go in and remove all the odd files I have installed from my previous jailbreaks?

    For example:

    I was on jailbreak 2.2 and used an app to change my carrier name from AT&T to something else. Will a restore to 3.0 fix that as well as remove all the downloaded content that came from the jailbreak apps?

    Thanks again!
