Can you un-jailbreak a iphone?

Asked by hairypalm (889points) March 25th, 2008

I want to know, because i don’t feel like waiting for the next update. But i will only do it if you can undo the jailbreak. So when the update comes…...Wham! Back to norm and ready for the update. >>>Side qusetion; what happens after your phone gets locked out if you jailbreak and at&t locks it? Are you screwed? Do you have to pay for it to get it unlocked?

Restoring your iPhone via iTunes usually does the trick. There’s also a re-virginizing process for those who may have done more then just a jailbreak. ZiPhone can “un-jailbreak” with ease.

If you jailbreak your iPhone and AT&T locks it you are scewed. You cannot pay to get it unlocked, and you will have to buy another iPhone.

you can fix your iPhone by restoring it. There is a button that says Restore on the iTunes screen when you plug in your iPhone to the computer. This will reset it to its factory settings. (Non-jailbroken)

Restore will not work once AT&T locks it. iPhone will be bricked.

word of caution, I jailbroke my iPhone and wanted to restore and tried to put my backed up info such as contacts and things back on and all of a sudden my email app didn’t work or load. I hade to restore completely so you may lose all your txts and pics. Not a huge loss but one you wantto be aware of
