    I just got a replacement iPhone this morning from apple and pwned it with pwnage, its working great. however the vibrator is really noisy (guessing its a refurb that has been dropped), and i want to get it changed out again. how can i restore it properly? just go into itunes and restore with the regular 2.0.2 firmware?

    Yes, if you can do a DFU restore in iTunes everything will be erased, pwning doesnt touch the hardware. I pwned my 3G and then I noticed that it had light leaks and cracks in the backing so I restored it and had Apple replace it. No questions asked, just looked at the cracks and the light leak and told me that they would replace it.

    so dfu restore means getting the phone into dfu mode (power + home for 10 seconds, then home for 10 seconds), and then restore with the default 2.0.2?
