    I'm fairl new to the iPhone game and the whole Jailbreak scene, but I'm selling my gf's iPhone 4 which is Jailbroken - my question is this:

    Will I lose the Jailbreak if I Rest All Settings to sell the phone? :confused:

    What do you mean hard reset? Are you talking about pressing "Reset all content & setting" on the phone itself? Don't ever do this with jailbroken phone, it will hang at Apple logo and you will have to restore it.

    There is a program in Cydia call Panicroom. See link below where you can use to erase your info on jailbroken Iphone.

    Thanks to dhlizard to point this out on one of the other thread.

    If you want to sell it a jailbroken phone, you can either use this method or restore, jailbreak it and set it up as new phone in Itunes.

    Sounds easy enough, I'll take this route instead. I don't have the time to reset it, jailbreak it over again.

    Thanks!!

    Good chance an erase all will make a JB phone unusable. Just restore as new and it'll be fine.
