    I've erased all files, prefs, etc from my phone and restored.

    However, there are still remnants from the jailbreak. (ie, percentage of battery left and Make it Mine carrier name change)

    A. How do I remove these leftover files?
    B. My main concern is not wanting to pollute my iPhone 4 when I get it next week. Do you think a that once I update my OS, these files will be left behind cause the jailbreak wont even be compatible?

    Restore, choose set up as new.

    That's not really an option if I want to keep everything...

    Well you might have to re-jailbreak and make it the default settings.

    I've had the same problem in the past and had to re-jb, change or delete those settings and then restore from backup. Even so, there will still be jb remnants in your backup but it's never really caused any big problems for me (knocking on wood). It would be nice if there was a way to remove all jb remnants from our backups so that we can restore from a nice, clean backup but I just don't think it's possible. I agree that setting up as new is not really an ideal option but I guess you have to decide what's really important to you. For me, restoring from backup is the easiest way to do it without losing certain data and settings. That's what I'm planning to do with my iphone 4 when it comes next week.

    rejailbreak a install uninstal MIM & percentage of battery left and any other programs and hope for the best or restore as new! MIM is a tough guy I delt with that one before. you are better off to uninstall cydia programs then restore official firmware or unjailbreak unless you are restoring as new! ;)

    The only remains I've found from unjailbreaking are the two things you described: MakeItMine names and battery percentage. I was jailbroken on 2.whatever when 3.0 came out. I upgraded to 3.0 on my 3G and it kept my MakeItMine name and it had the apple battery number displayed, even though it's not even an option on the 3G. I had to wait until I could jailbreak it again to change those, because I wanted to restore from my backup instead of setting up as a new phone. I'm sorry, but I think you either have to re-jailbreak it and change it, or start fresh.

    Need Help

    I Jailbroke my fiances iPhone 3GS a while ago...Since then we have just restored from back up to "clean" the jail break off. Here's my question, her screen was always freezing up and not recgonizing when its being touched. I set up and appointment with apple to have the phone checked out. I know they plug the phones in, are they going to be able to tell the phone was Jailbroken...Just hoping not to get dragged out of the Apple store in cuffs by the FCC ;)
