    My phone has been behaving most ****ily recently with two main problems:

    1.) Sometimes the internet or data does not work unless I reboot the phone.

    2.) Even worse, every morning when I wake up, the phone is dead. I have to hold the home and power button to get it to restart and wake up. It seems if it is not used for a number of hours it just dies - Or my room is too cold and it freezes to death. Anyone heard of this problem? The phone is a refurb from apple, after I exhanced my original one due to green/blue camera tint.

    I am currently on greenpoison, jailobroken 4.1, and wish to stay on it. However, to cure these ailments, I want to restore and re-jailbreak. This is probably an elementary question, but once I click restore in itunes, how can I get it to install 4.1 and not 4.2? I have Blobs saved on Cydia, but dont really have any idea what to do with them.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Haha, really? I had a feeling it was the cold, and then dismissed it because I thought a phone switching off because it was cold sounded silly. Tonight, I will place it under a jumper or something (hahaha) and see if the same thing happens.

    Also, thanks to WhatAmI for the link, very informative. Looks like a lot, and I am at work, so I guess I will scan it later.

    Haha yeah, its so bloody cold at the moment, plus my boiler has packed up. I sleep in a coat as well as my duvet :cool:. Perhaps my phone was a little bit too cold:confused:. As far as the internet and data issues go, I guess thats just a software thing that a restore needs to fix.

    How cold is cold? Because my phone regularly survives nights at 30F - and still has juice to spare in the AM.

    Do you sleep in a meat locker?

    How good is your signal where you're putting the phone over night? If it's got lousy signal and it's pinging the tower constantly or fetching, that'll kill it.
