    Default [2.0][Virginize] Need to send iPhone in for service - how to completely restore?

    I have a iPhone 4gb (1.02 otb) that's currently on firmware 2.0 (unlocked and jailbroken), but the back plastic is loose and I need to send it in.

    I tried searching around but couldn't find anything specific to my former firmware (if that even matters, I'm confused about the bootloader version).

    What steps would I need to do to completely return my iPhone to OTB state? I'm using Windows.

    Simple.

    You used pwnage to jailbreak and unlock so all you need to do is create a new custom firmware using expert mode and uncheck "auto delete bootneuter".

    Then restore using it.

    Once the phone has ran bootneuter once and rebooted just go into bootneuter and set unlock baseband and neuter bootloader to "off" and press "flash"

    Do NOT interupt it or you will brick your phone!

    When it has completed the process your phone will be locked and no-longer neutered.

    You 1.0.2 phone came with the 3.9 bootloader - so if when you run bootneuter is says your bootloader is 4.6 - chose 3.9 when you re-lock and un-neuter.

    Then you restore in iTunes using Apples original 2.0 firmware and its all back to factory settings.

    Remmeber that if you are not on an official contract you will be locked out and not able to activate the phone!

    Apple requires phones that they fix to be on a valid contract and activated so remember that!

    BTW It is NOT VIRGINISING!

    Virginising is the process by which a baseband corrupted at 1.0.2 by the original AnySIM was returned to its original state for an update to 1.1.1.

    You simple want to undo your unlock!
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)

    Is it possible to downgrade back to 1.02? Since I said my phone wasn't touched since I opened it, they may think it's 1.02 by default. I forget, but is it possible to upgrade your firmware to 2.0 legit before activating, or do you have to activate to even update your firmware?

    Ok, I did all that, but how do I know that everything is completely refreshed to OTB state? My baseband was already 3.9, and I re-ran bootneuter to unneuter/lock the phone before restoring to vanilla 2.0 in DFU mode.

    As long as you did NOT restore from any backup or sync the phone!

    And it is still on the activation screen then it is in OTB condition.

    You have relocked and everything is deleted.

    You can't check there is nothing there because that would involve hacking it again lol

    But when you restore it wipes everything and relocking the phone and un-neutering puts the baseband back to original state.
