    If you have NOT jailbroken yet do this.

    1. Backup phone in itunes.
    2. Jailbreak
    3. Restore backup. (when you first launch itunes make sure you cancel the sync so it doesnt backup over your old backup)

    if youve already jailbroken and lost facetime and MMS do this.

    1. Restore firmware
    2. Setup as new phone
    3. BACKUP in iTunes
    4. Jailbreak
    5. Restore backup

    The main thing here is that you have a backup of the phone from BEFORE you jailbroke it.

    OP can you be clearer about what you done. You restored your phone to fresh 4.0.1. Then you jailbroke. Then you restored from backup. Is that correct? What about if you reset your phone again?

    thats correct. yeah sorry using some of the same words. thats exactly what ive done. im syncing all apps and stuff right now. but still have facetime, mms and jailbreak.....dunno if I want to tempt fate and restart the phone. but the phone did restart when I restored the backup and facetime stuck around. this was an improvement cause both my phones lost facetime and MMS immediately didnt have to restart the phones to lose em.

    restart the phone and see if it's still there ... that's the real test.

    from:

    To everyone having jailbreak problems, that's you @joshuatopolsky, (FT and MMS): Do a fresh restore to 4.0.1 then apply the jailbreak.

    I restored to factory and MMS and FT are still gone. I first backed it up. Then Jailbroke. I noticed that FT and MMS were gone. I figured I would wait until a better JB comes out so I restored back to factory to get rid of the jailbreak but they are still missing?

    I just want to get rid of the jailbreak all together until another one comes out. So I figured I would restore a fresh copy. After I did that they are still gone.
