    So I tried Jailbreaking my 3GS with Absinthe and when I clicked to install Cydia, I realized that my SIM card was not in so it had not internet connection of any type. Now all I have is a half jailbroken system or something. How do I just completely revert back to absolute stock/factory settings. Currently there are no icons on the dock (bottom icons) and many of the usual icons are missing. There is no Cydia icon anymore either. I've tried the usual method but it boots back up the same way.

    Please help! I've decided against jailbreaking!
