    In lieu of http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1362444 where i asked if i could restore to re jb i was told there was no way about it. Thank you to the people who helped :).

    I guess my next question is, what is the best way to remove the jb, and restore to factory settings so i can update to 5.1.

    Would i need to use Tiny umbrella? or will doing it through itunes reset work fine?

    Thanks again.

    assuming you want it to be totally fresh out of the box and do not intend to jailbreak again with any of the current methods, then just connect your phone to itunes and click restore. However, doing this will almost certainly mean it could be a while before you can jailbreak again, so think carefully before you do so.

    Yes, it will restore the phone to a completely blank configuration as though it were never jailbroken.

    And if you want to be really sure, set up as new iPhone during restore process.

    Make sure your host file points to apple and not cydia. Even on a fresh install via itunes, you'll error out if this is not done. Use tiny umbrella to do this.
