If you mess up something using iFile, will a complete restore correct the issue?

I was trying to delete the slide to unlock bar and text on the TypophoneWeather lock screen. I followed the instructions a site listed and went into"springboard strings"the instructions said to change this -
When you first open it you see this:
"AWAY_LOCK_LABEL' = "slide to unlock";...."

You want to change it so it looks like this:
"AWAY_LOCK_LABEL' = '';...."

now when I go into text viewer have weird text on my phone, I also can no longer go into that folder, as I get this error.

Any help will be appreciated.
Brandon

No one?

I guess I'll try to do a complete restore. Anything I should be aware or cautious of when doing a complete restore?

Of 5.1.1 got some updates, it should be fine, correct?

Do I need to delete all traces of the phone being jail broken before I restore?

try using diskaid or something similar. you can then manually fix the issue from there. always worth a shot.

whoa whoa, before doing all that... download an application on your computer, windows or mac called iexplorer, connect your iphone, traverse to that directory via the application itself, then find the file and either replace it or edit it.

Then reboot and you should be fine.

Or, try connecting via SSH (think you need to download something in Cydia first) and do it wirelessly... just saying (I'm a fan of DiskAid and the like but seriously, SSH via WiFI = teh win).

I do have iExplorer. I tried to find the file this morning, but didn't have any luck finding that directory. I was in a hurry this morning, so I may have over looked it. Anything in iFile should show up in explorer? If I find the file, how do I go about fixing it? Would correcting the text back from what it originally was (what I posted in first post) correct it?

I'm okay with having to reinstall all my cydia apps etc... I just don't know the ins and outs of jail breaking, as this is my first time. So I'm worried restoring with my cydia apps etc my brick my phone.


Thanks for the help!

Yes, because basically all they do is seeing or exploring the filesystem that Apple so decidedly tries to hide away from us.
Same with DiskAid, SSH.

If I find the file, how do I go about fixing it? Would correcting the text back from what it originally was (what I posted in first post) correct it?
In theory, yes, if you put it exactly as it was, yes. Because the error you get is simple a parsing error (aka whatever you changed in that file screwed the format that the parsing engine expects).
