    Default Restore back to original state prior to returning of iphone for exchange

    My iphone 4 come with 4.1 which has been jailbroken with limera1n.

    Recently the home button developed some problem and I intend to return the phone for exchange since it is still within 1 year warranty period.

    What should I do to restore the iphone back to original state before jailbreak?

    Thank you!

    Do you have a SHSH saved for 4.1?
    Do you rely on unlock?

    I do not rely on unlock.

    When I open Cydia, I read SHSH:iOS 4.2.1 on top. Can I consider my SHSH saved? (I did not do any other backup before jailbreaking with limera1n).

    Thank you.

    What exactly is the home button problem?
    Are you using the Cydia package Activator?

    Cydia reports that you DON'T have a 4.1 SHSH - it's most likely correct. The most accurate way to verify this is via TinyUmbrella. The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella

    Your only way to remove the limera1n jailbreak is to restore to 4.2.1. Any iPhone you get as a replacement will come with iOS 4.2.1 also. You are limited to a tethered (or semi-tethered) jailbreak with iOS 4.2.1 (if you choose to jailbreak again)

    The home button did not response in 20% of the time.

    The local practice here is likely to go for one to one exchange. Therefore, I need to make sure that the staff from the service center do not detect any traces of jailbreaking, regardless of what current version of iOS running on it.

    If they conclude that the phone has been jailbroken previously, they will not entertain the request even though there is no relationship in between jailbreaking process and functionality of the home button.

    Can I assume that if I choose ‘restore’ in iTune, it will upgrade the phone to iOS to 4.2.1 and all the jailbreaking traces will be erased (firmware, baseband, data and etc)?

    You did not answer my question about the Cydia package "Activator". I've seen another report about home button missing clicks that was determined by an Apple Guru to not be a hardware problem.

    Does it require a harder press to register a click on the home button?

    The reason I ask, is that there is no way back to 4.1 for you if you restore to 4.2.1 and take your device in for a swap - especially if they determine it's a software issue.

    If you are 100% sure it's a hardware problem:

    Point #1 - if you need to keep any of the data from your current phone (and put it back onto the replacement) then be sure to make a backup of the phone in iTunes before you do the restore. I always make a "backup" of the backup, via Finder/explorer as iTunes often stupidly replaces your backup with an empty backup if you set your iPhone up as new after the restore.

    Point #2 - check your hosts file. If there are any entries that refer to gs.apple.com (it's safe to ignore entries with a # before the gs.apple.com) then you MUST remove these entries before you restore - otherwise your restore will fail.

    Once you manage to restore to 4.2.1 - set the phone up as new. There will be no trace of jailbreak.
