    EDIT: THERE WAS AN ERROR AND IT SAID I HAD TO RESTORE THE PHONE. EVERY TIME I DO SO I GET AN ERROR 1004 OR SOMETHING...ANYONE KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS??

    I'm freaking out here...do I have to have 10.0.1 iTunes in order to restore? Because it says "restore and update"

    ---


    I'm on 4.02 and going to genius tomorrow to get my phone home button fixed.

    So, I need to get rid of signs of a JB. Is it enough to just update to 4.1? This will take off my JB and update the software? Then I can just walk into the store and there will be 0 sign of a JB?

    Thanks!

    Your jailbreak apps' plist files are stored in user space also included in your iTunes backup. It'll be best if you restore as a new phone.

    While this is true, the Apple Service Reps generally don't check that carefully.

    Hmm interesting - well there was an error so it made me restore my phone anyway (I don't care, I'm most likely getting a new one tomorrow). I'll restore from backup for tonight, and reset (maybe) tomorrow morning. Though hopefully they won't care.

    Use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode.

    Launch it and in the bottom right corner after it detects your phone there should be an option to kick your phone out of recovery mode.

    Disregard what I said. I was reading another post and yours was similar so I got confused.
