    Do a restore with itunes, then unlock it again with ziphone, iplus, or whatever you like the best

    What format do you have in mind ?

    Ether you format / restore or you manually clean out the apps using openSSH or uninstall from installer

    Thats really the only three options you have

    I don't get what you're asking. Formatting on the phone works like you computer, it erases all the info on the drive.

    Which apps are you having problems, have you tried just deleting remnant files via SSH?

    O I see... you want to completely format the phone, leaving it with nothing and completely unusable?! lol

    There will always be files on the iphone, DUH. It's a mini computer, it can't possibly be deleted completely, leaving it bricked. You need to use itunes and do a restore, to leave the phone fresh and factory set. That was a really dumb question, BTW, a little searching on google, you would have found your answer very quickly.

    Don't allow iTunes to put data from a backup back. Register with iTunes as a new phone.
    iPhone 3GS / 3.1.2 JB (PwnageTool) / 04.26.08 carrier-locked, Carrier Logo Fixer / Cydia / 1000 posts on Hackint0sh

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).
