    Hello,

    I recently bought a 2nd hand Jailbroken, unlocked iPhone 3g and have a question about profiles. In the iPhone Settings menu, it still has the old owner's name in the profile. I was going to delete it but a warning dialog box popped up about "Remove Provisioning Profile".

    Is it safe to delete this? or will it affect the jailbreak/unlock?

    thanks

    Sounds like someone didn't wipe or restore the phone before they sold it to you. :)

    If you want to "start from scratch" and still use it unlocked, download the 2.2.1 firmware from Apple, use Pwnage Tool to make a custom package, restore your iPhone with the custom firmware and then connect to iTunes and set up as your phone. If you have AT&T you'll need to use Pwnage Tool in Expert Mode and uncheck the Activate option.

    I've just done this, but am scared something went wrong. I've now got the 'slide for emergency' screen. It starts up with a pineapple logo but then goes to this.
