    Default (1.1.3[1.0.2 OTB]) a restore may not be as clean as you think..

    Hi,
    I had the impression that a restore would wipe out all the mess done in the past. I found out it is not necessarily the case.
    While I was still running 1.1.1 I installed a small app called KB2 which lets the user disable/enable the auto-correction feature of the keyboard.
    In order to update to 1.1.3 with ziphone, I ran restore to 1.1.3 with itunes which is supposed to leave me with a clean phone. Before I did so, I did uninstall KB2. Well, after restoring and unlocking with ziphone everything seemed to be going well on my "clean" iphone. Or not? The autocorrection feature was not working! Since there is no way to enable it within settings I had to go an install KB2 again, turn it ON and the uninstall KB2. Long story short, the changes KB2 made on my iphone during 1.1.1 carried on after a restore to 1.1.3.
    How much cleanup does a restore really do? I wonder how much mess from the past I am dragging into 1.1.3 and future updates. Thoughts?

    Did you use RESTORE (iTunes + Cable) or DFU RESTORE ?

    Also KB2 fix could count as a tweak,basicly it it a patched .plist, also case with MakeitMine.app by erica Sadun ... (remeber Nates first jailbroken 1.1.3 iPhone WITH custom logo) ....

    i set my phone to restore mode. turning it off then on with both buttons pressed, when apple came i just left home button pressed until itunes recognized phone in restore mode. the iphone had a picture of itunes logo and usb cable. is that DFU? what's the difference?

    That is "ordinary" RESTORE mode, DFU mode is,best explained like old fdisk command and then install (OS X on the iPhone has not control over the restore proces, just iTunes), anyway there is a thread about differences between RESTORE and DFU mode, with all details cleared, use search function (i forgot the link )

    Would be interesting to test but I don't think I'm up for doing the whole process again with DFU just to see if the KB2 holds after it or not...lol

    ok i read that thread but it is saying dfu mode is better to do a downgrade. how does this imply that it is "cleaner" than normal restore?
