    I'm selling my phone and it is jail broken/unlocked on 3.1.2 right now but I need to completely wipe the phone for security of my information and contacts but the buyer wants it to be jail broken/unlocked when he buys it. Is it possible for me to do so? Any links would be greatly appreciated.

    I've been told that if you restore with a PwnageTool made custom firmware and then set up as new phone it should clear everything and keep your JB and unlock. I haven't tried it, but that's what I'm doing when I sell my 3GS.

    What I did...

    I don't know if this will help, I bought an Iphone 3GS Jailbroken and Unlocked, it was obvious that the seller was nervous about it getting locked again. So it had all his info on it. All I did was sync it with Itunes which was totally blank and all his info got wiped out, contacts, pics, music etc. For mail accounts you could just delete your account. The phone is still unlocked and jailbroken. Just remember don't do any factory resets from the phone or restore from Itunes. :)

    Oh, I see.
    I was assuming he was talking about a 3GS also but wanted to be sure before I gave him advise.
    Good option would be to upgrade it to a custom 3.1.3 IPSW created by pwnage tool IMO.
    This way he can still sell it JB and unlocked with blacksnow but without any of his stuff on it.

    Damn, I wouldn't want to leave anything on my phone...

    It's a 3GS.

    You assumed correctly :).

    I thought when you upgrade 3.1.3 it updates the baseband which means it cannot be unlocked? Is that why it should be a custom 3.1.3 ? How would I go about finding those files/tutorial? TY

    Yes, if its a custom 3.1.3 it will not update the baseband.
    You need to create one with pwnagetool if you got a mac.
    Or if not you can download the ipsw from various sites online.
