    Can I revert back to regular 1.1.1 after jailbreaking??
    Will a simple restore to the trick??
    I don't want to brick this thing.

    +1 Would love to know, just because I'm finding my iPhone less reliable (crashing more) and honestly don't use any of the third party apps anyways. :eek:

    I didn't think it would brick, but does that absolutely fix everything? Thats my biggest concern.

    Thanks.

    A restore wipes out the entire user-land operating system and restores it from the factory image. The only thing a restore will not "change" or "fix" is if you have made changes to the baseband hardware (i.e. unlocking your phone to run on any network).

    restoring back to a fresh 1.1.1 will fix everything. it will be as if you never jailbroke it. you will be given the option to restore from the last time iTunes did a backup of your iPhone so you will retain your notes, texts, etc.

    when it installs 1.1.1, iTunes will give you an error and your iPhone will tell you that it needs to be activated. this is normal. i got worried when it happened to me. i just quit iTunes and started it up again and i got to use the backup to get back my stuff.
