    Default [1.1.4] factory settings (Virginizing) ?

    I have read through tons of posts and tutorials, and just cant seem to get my iPhone reset back to factory defaults, so that I can activate it with AT&T like you normally would.

    I have Jailbroken the phone with ZiPhone, which all worked just fine, but now I need to activate the account with AT&T, and it seems I need to "Virginize" the phone to do that?

    I bought it about a month ago, but had to wait for my current sprint account to come to an end, (ends 4-24-08)
    So now, I want to activate the iPhone.

    What can I do?
    Do I HAVE to virginize it in order to do the normal AT&T activation?
    If so, PLEASE help me out.

    Here are my specs:
    Version 1.1.4 (4A102)
    IMEI 01 143400 143696 1
    Modem Firmware 04.04.05_G

    well .... if you used ziphone then your bootloader must be 3.9 now instead of 4.6

    Search the forum for topic on bootneuter. Install bootneuter on the phone. change bootloader back to 4.6 and relock the baseband.

    After that, do a restore to 1.1.4 and you should pretty much have a phone similar to new out of box.

    uhm! look like he just jailbroken his phone (not unlock it). Because i think sprint doesn't use sim card...so hopefully his bootloader is not 3.9fb(cause by using ziphone). So, he just need to put his phone in recovery mode or DFU mode to get it back to factory setting. Hope this help

    Thanks ... I did not read OP first post carefully enough.
    tinhbantotvn is right, if you just jailbroke the phone and did not unlock it, a simple restore to 1.1.4 will be just fine.

    Yes, I think all I did was Jailbreak it with ZiPhone.
    But, the problem is, I need to get the phone back to complete out of the box state.

    I want to activate it with AT&T, just like you should when you buy an iPhone.
    And it seems, to do that, I need it to be back to the out of the box state,
    so that when I turn it on, it says "slide to activate"
    So I can make iTunes activate it with AT&T.

    Right now, I cant get ANYthing to work.
    I cant even get it to restore to anything older than 1.1.4 Which is whats on it now.
    I am not sure how to tell which bootloaded I have, how do I figure that out?
