    Exclamation Un-Jailbreaking without iTunes Restore??

    Ok, so I have a situation here. My iPhone 3gs 32GB has a fried USB port. It's literally DEAD. I cannot connect to any computer no matter what. "The device has malfunctioned" message is what I get when I plug it into a computer. Although it will still charge.... Anyways I have talked to an Apple "Genius" over the phone and he is saying that it is hardware failure on their part and they will issue me a replacement. Now getting to the real question here, my phone is currently jailbroken and unlocked... which means the iPhone's warrante is VOIDED! I need to somehow remove the jailbreak so I can get a "new" phone. How can I do this?

    Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings ????


    SSH into my phone and Delete jailbroken apps, exploits, and unlock?

    Help!! I want to be able to use iOS4!

    Is there some way you can hard reset?
    Erase all content and settings should work, because it erases the contents of the entire iphone, as far as I understand.
    It would be best to try it, I guess, unless you have some really important stuff that you can't lose, like notes, etc. that you haven't synced. In that case, I would suggest taking screenshots of notes etc., and then use OCR to read it.
    Hope it helps.

    I'm just worried about the "Erase All Content And Settings" NOT working and me being stuck with a lovely iPhone 3gs with no USB interface at all. The phone would literally be good for nothing except maybe a flashlight. MAYBE. I'm also worried about it becoming bricked. Because there is no way to save it if this happens. Yeah I mean Idk about a "hard reset". Are there commands that could be run from terminal that would do the trick? I just need a guaranteed method to wipe away all traces of a jailbreak, besides the iTunes restore. ..

    Erase all content and settings does exactly what it says it does. It erases all content and settings. This includes the firmware and any traces of jailbreaking.

    Worst case is that you erase all content and settings and send the phone into a boot loop because you can't get a connection over iTunes -- at which point the Apple store can't tell it has ever been jailbroken.

    So long as you can complete the erase, you don't have much to worry about.

    I have just done it and all I can see now is a damn pineapple logo. So I suggest you should refrain from doing the same.

    I can't enter DFU as my sleep/wake button is broken and now I will have to wait for the battery to die and then hope that by holding down the Home button it will be recognised when I connect it next time.. damn it. damn me and my impatience :/

    Yeah that's kind of on me as well -- the one thing that erase all content and settings DOESN'T DO is replace your boot logo with the stock logo (this is one reason that I never replace mine from the standard Apple logo). This must be replaced with a stock firmware restore or by using any of the tools that replace the boot logo.

    It's still possible to get into DFU mode without a working power button, it's just immensely more difficult. I shot you a PM with instructions but that was before I realized your power button wasn't working. You don't need to get into DFU mode to do what you're looking for. As I think you're aware however, you will have to let the battery drain and hold the home button while it reboots. That will kick you into recovery mode and you can resolve the issue there.

    Ultimately, this very specific reason is why I _never_ change my boot logo. I can appreciate the customization, etc., but I don't ever want to find myself in a situation where it is a nightmare to get something that unnecessary reset before I can make my phone work again.

    Let me know how it goes

    Yeah I did the erase all content and settings. I was kinda expecting the boot loop problem. When you reset any settings you get stuck with the boot loop problem. And I can't use the iRecovery program because like I said no USB interface! That's the downside with Blackra1n. I have been waiting 14 hours now for my phone to correct itself. My appointment with an apple "genius" is in 4 hours. Should I still bring it in if my phone is still stuck in the boot loop? Doesn't that suggest evidence of a jailbreak though?

    If the boot loop shows the standard Apple logo, there's no way for them to tell and they should repair/replace.

    I seriously thought that the boot loop problem was solely because of the jailbreak though? Annd they won't be able to get my ICCID either if my phone is in this state. You really think it's worth my time to drive 20 miles to the apple store? Or do you think the will replace it in this state?

    My rationale on this is such:

    There are situations with a legitimate iPhone that will end in it boot-looping. This means that Apple cannot assume that a phone with a legit boot logo that is boot looping is anything more than a defective device or they run the risk of losing a current customer by accusing them of jailbreaking the device. As much as Apple rags their customers out with warranty rejections and other things like that, if you've got a phone that doesn't scream out 'JAILBROKEN' when you walk in, they have to assume it's not, even if there is a circumstance that may elicit similar results related to jailbreaking. They can't go turning away everyone with a boot loop because the same symptom can be caused by jailbreaking.

    That said, the above is just my rationale and style of thinking on the matter. I don't work for Apple, I don't work at an Apple Store, and I have no 'Genius' friends that have told me this -- so YMMV.
