    I accidentally 'erased all content and settings' on my jailbroken iphone 3gs. it was jailbroken using jailbreakme and was on ios 4.0.1....

    i sold my phone on ebay and was trying to delete all my data but keeping the jailbreak intact like i said i would if the buyer requested it.

    it's been on the apple logo for a good 10 minutes now, but how much longer will this take? I read online it'll take like 2 hours?? is that right?

    and it also says it's going to kick into DFU mode and I will have to connect to itunes to 'activate' it.

    my question is... what do i need to do so that i can jailbreak it again. do i have to find the 4.0.1 ios online and manually install it so i can use jailbreakme again? will i have to activate with an at&t sim? help please :(

    Yes, it will take several hours.

    Did you save your SHSH blobs?

    itunes will not let you restore to anything but 4.1 unless you saved you shsh files. If its the jailbreak you're worried about, update to 4.1 and use limera1n to jailbreak it.... you can find all the info about it and download link for it at limera1n.com
