Thread: Retain jailbreak after restore / email app not working

    Default Retain jailbreak after restore / email app not working
    Hello All,

    I have the following setup:

    iPhone 4
    Firmware 4.3.3 jailbroken with jailbreakme.com
    Not unlocked (I don't need to be unlocked)

    I am having a lot of trouble with the following:

    Email (Apple Mail app) is not working. When I try and remove and re-add my previously working Gmail account I get an immediate "imap.gmail.com" not responding error. It is as if the phone isn't even trying to reach out to the imap server. I have tried multiple fixes that I have found online for this with no luck. I have also tried adding my work email back in (using Exchange). That email account appears to add BUT I cannot get or send mail from it.

    This issue started with me seeing emails in the email app that were dated 12/31/00 with no content and no way to delete.

    If there is a fix for the email without restoring, please let me know. Otherwise I was planning on restoring the phone and re-jailbreaking. I have all of my jailbroken app data saved with PKGBackup. I would love to restore back to 4.2.1 if possible, but staying at 4.3.3 is an option too.

    My iPhone is synced to iTunes on a Mac.

    Thanks for the help.

    Justin

    Have you tried another email account? My gmail does that once in a while as well for no reason, but returns to normal after a little while.

    Thank you for the response. Here is some follow-up

    -When I try adding my gmail account I get the immediate imap issue (its like the phone isn't even trying). If I just cancel out of the account and attempt to go to mail I get a "No Password" error. When I go into my account (Setting-->Mail-->Gmail) there is no password saved. I attempt to add my password, back to imap error.

    -When adding my Yahoo! account I get a similar issue. I can't connect to Yahoo! mail either.

    -When I add my work Exchange account it appears to add properly but when I go into the mail app there is no mail. It attempts to sync, but still get no information.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thanks...

    I think it might just need a restore (just what I would do if it were mine) because all the different accounts don't seem to work/work right. At least with a restore it would tell you if it is the device or something else, bc usually a restore will resolve any issue.

    I honestly don't know what's wrong though ... have you tried both on wifi and on 3G?
