    So like an idiot, I totally spaced on my iphone password. I have a 3GS, and it's jailbroken. I heard I would have to factory restore it on my computer to remove the password, but would that remove the jailbreak? I can't afford to lose the jailbreak :( Is there any other way to bypass the password?

    Any reason why you couldn't just restore, re-sync, and re-jb? It would be laborious, but would put you back to the same position minus the lost passcode.

    I'm a noob and I don't know anything about what the factory restore would do. In other words, what version of the software will it go back to? How will I know if it can be re-jailbroken? Also, I am a poor student and I am trying to avoid having to go pay to get it jailbroken again.

    (C) Back-up your phone as prompted.
    (D) Restore your phone from backup by syncing
    (E) Download the latest version of redsn0w (Google it)
