Thread: Need to reset iPhone 3GS due to sale and maintain unlock & jailbreak - how to?

    Exclamation Need to reset iPhone 3GS due to sale and maintain unlock & jailbreak - how to?
    I want to make sure I don't screw this up. I just sold my 3GS on ebay to upgrade to a 4. It's on 4.0.2 and jailbroken using jailbreakme.com and unlocked from cydia. How can I wipe the iphone, resetting everything and either keep those things or reinstall them? I don't want it to autoupdate with iTunes and lose my unlock!

    Don't do a reset, it will put your iphone into apple logo freezing mode. Delete manually if you can.

    Any guides out there to deleting all personal information on an iPhone manually?

    No, delete it one by one, i know it is a pain to do that. If you do a reset on the phone, you will need to restore again but you will need 4.0.2 shsh blogs.

    I have 4.0.2 blobs saved. How do I use those to restore to a fresh wipe of 4.0.2?

    Run Notepad as Admin , open up hosts file and add this line :
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    save it and reboots your pc
    Now do the Shift + Restore to 4.0.2

    You can also just run the TSS Server from TinyUmbrella instead of editing the host file. I say this cuz it didn't work for me and I had to run the TSS server instead.

    I want to make it simple for him, using tss server : you have to save shsh, port 80 must be available, slightly more work

    Doesn't always work for some that's why I said. Well now there's 2 options in case one doesn't work or the other works easier.
