    I want to give my jailbroken iPhone to a friend, but before I do that I'd like to erase all of my personal info/apps/photos etc from it.

    My question is, if I do "Erase All Content and Settings" - will my iPhone remain jailbroken or will it be brought to a brand new state and need to be jailbroken again? What are my options?

    Thanks!

    Erasing all content and settings will not only wipe your jailbreak, it will render the phone un-bootable. This is normal, and will require a restore + re-jailbreak. This is the safest thing to do to protect your data.

    Also, if you've purchased applications on Cydia, it's probably a good idea for your friend to purchase his own, instead of re-using yours. So erase, restore, re-jailbreak, then give it to your friend.
