    Just to make this clear:
    Is it possible to bring a jailbreaked (e.g. jailbreakme) and unlocked (anysim) iPhone (1.1.1) to factory state without any issues.
    I have read that a simple restore via iTunes removes all that jailbreakme-stuff, can anyone confirm this?
    And what about unlocks? Is it possible (via reset) to re-lock an iPhone without Apple noticing it?

    Thanks in advance... :)

    I did a jailbreak using the carnaval method which is similar to the jailbreakme method and I restored it.. the only problem is tho that I had to do this whole thing to get the restore to work properly:

    (this is my modmyiPhone post)

    Incase you still need help and for future people.. I actually jailbroke my iPhone 1.1.1 using carnaval and everything was working fine untill I installed anysim 1.1

    so when I tried to restore it I got error 1011

    To fix it what you have to do is uninstall:


    Quicktime
    Apple Mobile Device
    Apple Software Updater (something like that)
    iTunes

    (in this order)

    Then restart

    Go to iTunes.com and install... don't w/l to desktop just run it or open in firefox

    install itunes completely

    then restart computer

    then try doing the restore

    it should work now..

    if it doesn't then Apple will replace it

    and when u call apple and they ask for number (if ur doing the jailbreak just say you opened the iPhone and you connected to iTunes and it asked you to restore which you did and then u got that error and you already reinstalled itunes)

    hope that helps!
