Thread: Un-Jailbreaking iPhone

  1. #1
    Default Un-Jailbreaking iPhone
    I have an iPhone 3GS and have recently jailbroken it with purplerain.
    I would like to remove the jailbreak, for now, but I'm curious if anything is going to happen if I do a backup with iTunes in order to back up the many apps I've gotten from the App Store after jailbreaking the phone before I remove the jailbreak.

    A backup in itunes merely backs up settings and contacts. Apps bought in the AppStore are registered to your account and are also kept in the iTunes Music folder. Cydia apps can be backed up with pkgbackup.

    So if I restore things back to the way they were before the jailbreak it'll redownload all my apps that I've purchased post-jailbreak?

    Yes, the apps you purchased from the AppStore, regardless of whether they were pre or post jailbreak, will be restored to your phone (provided you specified which apps to sync with your phone)

    make sure you sync your phone just before you restore and select the sync applications option as well... this should copy over all bought/stolen apps to itunes.
    but after restore if you don't jailbreak you won't be able to resync the stolen apps.
