just curious if a restore leaves any traces of a jailbreak behind.
if just a jailbreak then no. If you unlocked your sim then yes.
thanks for the info!
If you unlock your sim and need to take your iphone to apple for servicing (dead pixels, for instance), is there an easy way to restore it to factory settings so they don't know? (Sorry if this has been answered before, but there are a lot of threads on hacking and I have no idea where to start.) I want to unlock one, but my only concern is that when something like that happens I will try to take it in but they will deny me service (I had to take my ipod touch back 4 times because of dead pixels)
Well i'm specifically referring just to a jailbreak, not unlocking.
what about virginze? will that remove the traces of an unlock?
Restoring does leave traces of jailbreaking.
Why would you write that without embellishing on it at all?!
Hmmm... So one vote each direction - Who is right?
so, does it or does it not?
What about 1.12 OOTB:
currently down to 111 - JB - oktoprep - upto 112 - JB - replace lockdownd - used o2sim
AS I understand it that method doesn't patch the bootloader, unlike the proper unlock - so does a restore 'format' the file area or just overwrite with the current files, thus leaving traces of custom apps, ssh 112 JB etc?
Still wondering this as well...what exactly does exist post restore??
You could probably ssh into your iPhone and rm -rf every non-Apple folder and file before doing a restore. Hell maybe even do it to the root folder if you're feeling adventurous.
in other words....we still don't know.
or maybe it does...?
All I know is that when I'ver restored and then re-Jailbroken my phone some of my data remained in the form of icon order and some other stuff.
