Removing IPhone Jailbreak
There are many people who are trying to figure out how to hack their iPhone with the software to unlock it allowing third party software to be installed, commonly called "Jailbreaking" the iPhone. However, what about those who want to remove the jailbroken software from their phone? there really is not much information about this process on the internet currently. As Apple begins to punish those who run jailbreak apps on their newest version of the iOS there will be many more looking for answers in this department.
If you have a jailbroken iPhone the chances are that you love the new functionality that it has offered you. Some of the biggest advantages of doing this software hack have now been added in the newest version of iPhone software. The iOS4 has added backgrounds, multitasking, folders and many more features that iPhone owners were only able to access by performing software alteration. Now that Apple has added these features, they apparently don't want anybody to use the jailbreak software on their products any longer. If you have downloaded iTunes 9.2 or upgraded to the iOS 4 software package you have already agreed not to use this software when you agreed to the EULA (End User Licence Agreement) and there are rumors going around that they now have the capability and are using it, to check your iPhone for non standard software. This may have already led to a few canceled iTunes accounts and many think that his will continue to be an issue.
If you want to get out while the getting is good, you can come back from the dark side and for most, it is a lot easier than you might think. If the version of jailbreak software you have installed offers a "Safe Mode" which most do, all you will have to do is put your phone in this mode to sync. Once your iPhone has been backed up, you have transferred your purchases to iTunes and then downloaded the newest version of iOS you are ready to go. Be prepared for a few hours of sync time, because these backups do take some time. For iPhone owners who have the 3G model, you will not get many of the features that are promised in the software update, so do your homework first to make sure that you know what you are getting. It would also seem AT&T is already pushing some updates that are purposefully slowing down the users who have applied the jailbreak software. This is just one more reason to consider changing your iPhone back to the standard software.
No matter what you like about the jailbreak software, there are not many people who would like to trade their iTunes account for a few extra apps. After all the iTunes store has hundreds of thousands of free apps to choose from. You can now tether legally though AT&T service, so this is another reason that you may consider switching back and removing iPhone jailbreak software from your phone.
