Thread: Standard restore doesn't remove Cydia?

  1. #1
    Default Standard restore doesn't remove Cydia?
    Could someone please explain to me why I've still got Cydia and Terminal.app after I just went through the standard restore process? I thought when I just click on the Restore button in iTunes, no option key, that I'd be all set. Apparently not.

    I've been noticing my signal dropping to zero randomly since I jailbroke my first-gen iPhone on 2.0. Since there are no compelling reasons for me to stay jailbroken right now, I wanted to give it a fresh/clean restore. Well, it feels anything but clean when Cydia, Terminal, and god knows what else just won't allow itself to be deleted.

    Once jailbroken, always jailbroken? What gives?

    Do a DFU Restore and you will be back to factory.

    You may want to actually DO these things before suggesting them.
    You were wrong. Now I've wasted further time and effort, and I'm no closer.

    Anyone else?

    The answer: apparently iTunes 7.7 "remembers" which ipsw file you last used to restore, so even though I didn't specifically choose my custom ipsw, it used it anyway. I option-clicked Restore, chose the OEM ipsw file, and I no longer have Cydia. Thanks for playing.
