    Hi,

    If i follow these instructions (http://iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=14562) to jailbreak my iphone 4 will it be reversible? This wont affect or change my bootloader or baseband or anything like that will it?

    Also this is untethered isnt it (am i right in thinking i can reboot my phone fine without connecting to a pc all the time?)

    If i dont like it i can just restore in itunes and put an original unjailbraked restore on it cant i?

    Matt

    What is your iPhone 4's baseband now? The only way the baseband changes is if you upgrade using an official firmware.

    Using the jailbreak software doesn't change the baseband in anyway.

    Why do you want to save your baseband? It's not unlockable anyway. And bootloader is not the same or anything you need to worry about on an i4.
    What are you trying to accomplish?

    I just want to jailbreak my iPhone 4 without apple knowing about it if I need to take it in for a warranty repair. I want to be able to restore to a non jailbreaked os if I need to. I only asked about the baseband etc to see if it changes it by jailbreaking as apple will know then won't they.

    You'll be fine. If you need to take your iPhone in for repair, just restore it. Apple has no way of knowing your device is jailbroken unless you tell them or they see it.

    Click save as but edit the name and change it from .zip to .ipsw
    Save as file: all types

    Seriously, who uses IE for anything--especially since it screws up D/Ls? It's about as useful as Dubya at a mensa meeting.
