Thread: Un-jailbreak Questions

  1. #1
    Default Un-jailbreak Questions
    I have the 3GS. Jailbroke with Spirit.

    Thursday (I hope) the wife and I will be waiting in line for the iPhone4.

    She is getting my 3GS and I will be switching to the 4. This means she has to come in with a clean install on the 3GS.

    How do I un-jailbreak my 3GS to its original state without losing all my data? I don't believe I have a backup beyond the jailbreak.

    Thanks.

    Sync with iTunes(which also backs up your information), then restore to latest firmware, then restore from backup.

    Latest firmware being iOS4 or should I not update iTunes and use the above steps.

    I backed it up, hit restore and got the following message:

    "Device isn't eligible for requested build"


    EDIT. I am running 3.1.3.

    I'm the exact same boat as you. Got a 3GS with Spirit, which will be inherited by the missus when I buy the iPhone4.

    It appears Apple has stopped signing older firmware, so it's impossible to restore. Ive heard reports similar to yours on different venues.

    The best course of action right now, i believe, is to try and update to iOS4. Let us know how it works.

    Somewhere on the forums I read that is NOT a good idea to do. Trying other options right now.

    Were they jailbroken with Spirit, though...?

    That is also my situation, however my wife is inheriting my 3GS which is jail broken with spirit, I do not want to remove the jailbreak or upgrade to 4.0, but I want to restore from the backup of her old iPhone, will I lose the jailbreak?
