I want to do a full restore with a fresh download of 2.1. I already deleted the backups
I don't think that's possible. I'm sure you can downgrade the firmware, but you would have to look that up.
You are just going to be downloading the same exact software you already have. Apple does a hex code check on everything you download to make sure its not corrupt. Don't be stupid and just restore it from your already downloaded 2.1 firmware.
first you have to find the folder that 2.1 is located in. On my computer (Vista) it is located here: (if your on a mac it will be someplace else)
C:\Users\me\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
me is my user name on my pc - on yours it will be your user name. erase:
and the next time you restore with itunes it will redownload the file.
You want to put your iPhone into DFU mode and due a restore in iTunes.
1. Hold Power & Home for 10 seconds.
2. Let go of the Power button and continue holding home for 10 more seconds.
3. Your screen will be blank and iTunes will see an iPhone in recovery mode and let you restore.
You will have a completely new and clean install of iPhone OS 2.1.
I think thats what you were looking to do.
I am trying to find the file, I am on windows XP
If you have quickpwn on your computer you can open it up and it will find the file for you. when it brings up the ispw file click browse and you can open the containing folder and delete the file.
awesome. I am trying to unpwn actually. I did one restore but the numerical battery meter still comes up. I thought the jailbreak was cool and all, but the phone runs much better without it. There really was nothing all that useful for me.
if you want to completely clear a jailbrake restore to 2.1; then go to settings - general - reset - and hit erase all content and settings then set up as new phone.
I just used quickpwn to find and delete the files, as well as all backups. yay new iphone!
