    I'm prepping my 3GS for selling. I just did:

    1) Erase all content and settings.
    2) Then I put it in DFU mode, and restored to 3.1.3 (the only SHSH I have on file).
    3) Then I jailbroke with spirit.
    4) Then I ran the spirit2pwn hack.
    5) Then I restored to a custom pwned 4.0 firmware.
    6) Then when it was done, the iphone screen says "iPhone is now activated", and on the computer I was at the screen to set up as a new phone or restore from backup.
    7) I do neither of those things and then unplug the phone from the computer. Loaded up cydia and installed ultrasn0w.
    8) Rebooted the device.
    9) On the iPhone, went into settings -> General -> Store, and logged out of my iTunes account. (Don't know why it was even logged into that)

    Am I all set to sell it? And how had it gotten logged into my iTunes if I never set up the phone? Maybe when it "activated" it does?

    Is that a yes or a no? :cool: And what's the deal with it being logged into my iTunes account if I never went in to set it up at new, etc.

    Ty...putting it up tonight or tomorrow. Wanted to wait until I got the iPhone 4 so that I could restore/activate my 3GS and then immediately transition over.

    I mean if I had already switched to iPhone 4, my old sim in the 3GS would not have allowed the phone to activate, correct?

    (I don't really understand the "activating" business)

    I think it happens when u activate it with your iTunes it associates with that account.

    Yes, you did fine.

    I love how the title has the word "another" in it.
