    I really wish there was a way to communicate to all jailbreakers that that toggle is just bad news.

    I can kind of understand why people might not search before doing something like that, but if only one could incorporate this into the jailbreak tools, then we'd have far fewer problems like this.

    You can restore to the latest 4.1 while maintaining your unlockable baseband by using TyniUmbrella while you do the restore.
    Open TU and click start TSS server.
    The open iTunes and restore or update your iPhone 4.
    It will give u an error when it finishes the restore. Click kick device out of recovery on TU and your on the new firmware with the old baseband.
    Then JB it and install ultrasnow from Cydia to unlock.

    you can also use PwnageTool and create a custom 4.1 fw that keeps your BB so you can be jb and unlocked on 4.1 (w/ older BB). If you don't own a Mac, then you can find a custom 4.1 fw from the internet and use redsn0w to finish the process...

    I don't know, I started out just as all of us did, not knowing much.

    That said, "Erase all content and settings" is not confusing. So if someone throws the toggle, they get "all" the content erased.

    Sort of like formatting a hard drive then wondering where the content went.

    Yeh, but considering that it's original purpose is to delete all personal stuff rather than 'reformat' the phone, I'm not sure the analogy is perfect.

    And from a pragmatic point of view, it would mean there are far view threads on this forum with people crying about pressing the big kill switch.
