    hi guys newbie here!
    i have brought a jailbroken iphone & now want to sell it on , so i need to unjailbreak it via itunes update
    i was under the impression all jailbrakes can be unjailbreaked but i have heard som talk of the risk of the phone being bricked.....
    apparently it depends on what method has been used to jailbreak i.e. firmware or software
    if its done via firmware (i think or cud be vice-verca) then you cannot revert the phone back to factory settings/unjailbreak & may become a brick
    i do not know what method was used to jailbreak the phone & im very confused & would appreciate som advice on this guys
    (software version is 4.1/iphone 3g 8gb bdw)
    thanks in advance

    1. It's jailbreak, not jailbrake.
    2. Connect to iTunes and do a factory restore.

    Actually, iPhones nowadays don't brick. I've done some terrible things to my iPhones, but in the end, there is ALWAYS a way to restore it back to factory settings.

    Hope this helps and check out my YouTube channel in my signature!

    Even if you delete the baseband? (I think I read somewhere that could happen)

    restore as a new device in iTUNEs

    you can delete basebands and you can software brick the iphone 4

    you would have to physically take it apart to mess it up

    I accidentally deleted, using CyberDuck, a whole load of important var files (didn't notice that there was another area highlighted besides the file I wanted to delete) and messed up the phone to a great degree. It took a while, but I was able to get it into DFU mode and then do a full restore. Take my word, if you can restore after what I did, you can restore an iPhone pretty much any time. Unless you hit it with a hammer, drop it in the toilet, dry it in the oven, and then run over it with your car.
