    If you have the numeric battery activated, deactivate it.

    If you have Categories installed, remove every single app from the folders.

    Restore it. If you know how, DFU restore it for good measure.

    After doing a restore from DFU mode also go to settings;general;reset; and erase all content and settings. It takes about 2 hours but will erase all traces of jailbraking. I've returned 2 jailbroken phones:eek: with no issues.

    Deactivate the number battery, uninstall Categories from Cydia>Manage>Packages
    DFU Restore: Hold Power+Home until it gets to Apple logo, let go of Power button..screen should be completely dark..like its off, but if you connect it to iTunes it'll prompt you to restore.

    jailbraking can negatively affect your battery. After you restore run it threw a few battery cycles. You got a little problem though - you can't return it jailbroken, and you can't restore it with out erasing your data:rolleyes:
