    Default [Question] How to restore to factory settings without WI-FI?

    My iphone is unlocked/jailbroken and needs service because the WIFI is dead. I don't currently have a contract so i need to virginize and sign up then call apple.

    Which firmware are you at right now, which unlock method?

    2.02 winpwn
    I understand that I can usb2iphone and install the program. However I'm unsure where to put it, where to get it, how to set permissions, and how to get it to start/show up on springboard (I just have to use it once to virginize)

    Assuming i figure that out, what settings should bootneuter have to be in 'virgin' mode.

    One more thing, can anyone walk me through how to officially activate the iphone on a gophone plan?

    EDIT: HOLY SHIT I PUT THE IPHONE IN THE FREEZER AND THE WIFI WORKED FOR LIKE 2 MINUTES SO I HAVE SSH AND BOOTNEUTER NOW!!!!!

    Now the question is, what settings should my bootneuter be in, how do i know what week, ect.
    And like i just said, anybody able to walk me through steps to activating as a gophone?

    I actually searched quite a bit, but for some reason i was using words like applecare, return, virginize. Thanks!

    Despite the thread you showed me, it didn't really answer what i wanted to know. I have a week 31 phone that i got when apple replaced my last one, would it have the 3.9 bootloader that it originally shipped with or have been updated with a 4.6?

    And the 999999999, that still works right? and after I get it repaired i can cancel the service within 14 days for a refund?

    Anyone?

    When I went into bootneuter and turned off neuter and unlock (leaving all positions in off and bl in 4.6) I got the -... symbol and it wouldnt go away.

    Do refurbished phones from week 31 have 4.6 bootloader normally?

    Does the 999999999 trick still work?

    Can I cancel the account and get all the fees refunded(by how soon)?

    so you flashed ur phone with bootneuter while setting fakeblank, neuter, and unlock to off? if that's ur case then just do a DFU restore in itunes and u should be fine.

    In order to restore iPhone to factory settings, you can try the following steps, hope it can help you indeed after you install iPhone Data Recovery on your computer.
    1. Connect the phone to your computer with a USB cable. Use a port on the computer, not a hub.
    2. Click on the name of the phone in iTunes.
    3. Click the "Restore iPhone" button
    4. When the restore finishes and you are given a choice to restore from backup or restore as New, choose Restore as New.
    After restoring you can manually add back your apps and music. All other content will be lost, unless you synced your contacts, calendar, notes and photos with apps on your computer or with iCloud.
