    Hi all,

    Probably been covered in here, but I can't find a definitive answer. I have the new 5S and will be handing down my 4S iOS 6.1 to my son. I want to basically reset all to factory defaults, but retain the jailbreak.

    I know that I cannot restore a 4S using the old method in iTunes as Apple will not sign it.

    I know of iLex RAT too, but unsure if this is the right way or what options to use.

    Please could you knowledgable people let me know :)

    Many thanks

    Is it possible to do this the other way around? Remove jailbreak and keep data?

    First you said you wanted to retain the jailbreak and then you said you wanted to remove it, which one is it?

    Thanks for the helps guys!!

    I used iLex RAT to do a full clean (option 12) and retain the jailbreak. Simple and worked a treat!! :D
