    Question How to reverse jailbreak and unlock

    Is it possible to reverse the redsn0w and Ultrasn0w jailbreak and unlock process and get everything back to original configuration - Apple and AT&T supported phone? If so, how is it done?

    This would be my first time jailbreaking and unlocking and I only want to do it if I can revert everything back to the way it was in case something goes wrong. I am concerned after reading some of the problems others have had.


    My iphone 3G is only 3 months old it is running the following versions.

    version 3.0 (7A341)
    Model MB046LL
    Firmware 04.26.08

    I would like to take my phone on a trip to Europe next month and would like to use a local pay as you go sim card while I am there. I will be in Holland, Germany and Croatia. Does anyone have any advice for doing this?

    Thanks for help.

    Just restore in iTunes to get back to factory state.

    To use elsewhere just redsn0w then UltraSn0w and enjoy. Data prices on PAYG can be expensive - make sure you know what you are getting.
    eg in the UK on Voda and O2 you pay for whay you use but on Orange and T-Mobile they cap it at a max of £1/day - the difference being that you have to request that feature each day from orange and you get charged £1 for that day, but with T-Mobile it is charged on usage but if you reach £1 for that day then you don't get charged any more regardless of usage, you don't need to request anything.

    Thumbs up Reversing your Jailbroken iPhone 3GS

    I have seen a lot of methods to this and some may work but in my case they didn’t. So after 12 hours and a lot of head ache I discovered how. If your case is like mine and you tried to do what a lot say is simple and just update in itunes that’s bullshit cuz a lot of people haven’t been able to. Here are the steps you need to take:
    So your looking at your beautiful Iphone right now furiously staring at the stupid recovery screen of death if it is plugged into your pc I want you to remove it first before you proceed.

    1. Go to control panel, then add and remove programs and get rid of everything that says apple, itunes, bonjour, quicktime.

    2. Go to my computer, double click the c:\ drive and then go to documents and settings\ and you will see all the user folders for your user names on your computer computer go into every folder in documents and settings and check if there is a folder named application data, for every single user folder that has an application data folder you need to go in it and delete any folders that say apple computer or apple.

    3.Now this is probably sounding similar to what you have tried but im not done yet,

    4.Reboot your computer

    5.Next Download the newest version of itunes off the apple website

    6.Install the newest version

    7.Next we are going to to navigate through the big scary windows folder. So go to my computer , double click the c:\ drive, double click Windows folder if it says show contents of this folder go a head and click that,

    now in some cases the system 32 folder maybe hidden,

    so lets go up to the task bar and click tools, then folder options, click the view tab, then look through the list and you will see hidden files and folders and you want to click show hidden files and folders and then click ok,

    next we want to find the system32 folder once you do double click it and look for a folder named “drivers” double click that and you’ll see a folder that says “ETC” double click that

    Now inside this folder there is a file named “Hosts”

    I want you to first right click the hosts file and and click properties then I want you to uncheck the read only and then click ok.

    Now right click the “hosts” file again and click open, it will say choose a program to open it with we are going to choose note pad and click ok.

    So we get a bunch of typing and numbers doesn’t matter because what your going to do is scroll all the way down and go to the end of the very last word and click just after it so your cursor is blinking after the last word and hit enter so you are on a new blank line just underneath everything,

    now you are going to copy and paste the following into the new blank line: 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

    now that you have done that click the X in the corner to close it and it will say save changes and click yes. What i assume this is going to do is a temporary by pass for apple that keeps rejecting your updates.

    8.Now its ok for you to plug your phone into your computer and it will say found new hardware just give it a sec to install all that.

    9.Now open itunes if it says register and all that just say register later because you will after drum roll please the update works,

    10.So it will say itunes detected a phone in recovery mode blah blah click ok

    11.Now you want to just click restore and click ok if there is any prompts during the install

    12.Let it all complete there is loading screens on the computer and there is a part where it is loading on the iphone with a little apple and progress bar just let it do its thing don’t touch it until its all completed you may get a pop up in itunes saying your provider has an update click ok to update,

    13.Then right behind that popup there will be a screen to register as a new phone or existing something along those lines you can CLICK NEW PHONE IF YOU WANT TOO and click next to go through the steps and voila your phones fresh and new again back to normal 

    14.Once all is said and done go back into the hosts file like we mentioned earlier and delete that line we pasted and save it and your done son!

    So you've done a very long winded uninstall of iTunes (rather than follow the instructions on Apple's site) and redirected your security server to saurik's - which will only work if cydia has your blobs but then restored to 3.13 which can't be jailbroken or unlocked and doesn't need Cydia's security server?
    I am very confused as to what you think you have achieved?

    Use Tiny Umbrella to point your Host file back to Apple.

    Upgrading to iOS6.1 will result in a tethered JB only on most devices.
    without knowing device, iOS version, if BLOBs etc are saved that is very unwise advice. Things have changed a lot since the original post.
