Can I “un-jailbreak”? (iPhone Different Restore Functions)

Filed under: Uncategorized — heredago @ 09:17

There’s two different types of restores:

One is a “restore from backup”, which you can do by right clicking on the icon of your iPhone in the left bar. This won’t remove the jailbreak and it’s just of your data (contacts, SMS, pictures, apps, settings, etc.) You can restore an unjailbroken backup onto a jailbroken iPhone and the reverse.

The other type of Restore is that big restore button that you see in iTunes, near the Update button. This wipes your iPhone completely clean, updates it to the latest available version (which is most probably not jailbreakable), updates baseband (and most probably removes software unlock if you had one), removes the jailbreak. It doesn’t restore your data (which you can do later). This is always an option no matter how messed up your iPhone gets.
