    I just bought an iPhone CDMA and it has no sim tray. It is already jailbroken an has iOS version 5.1.1. I discovered some spyware on the phone and would like to restore it. Can it be activated once restored? I'm not from the US so can't use it as a phone, still want to keep it as an iPod. So the question is, can it be restored and activated? here's a picture with the os and firmware version:iPhone4 CDMA no sim tray-imageuploadedbytapatalk1348697145.878456.jpg

    I found Copy10 installed on the phone from cydia, it's pretty nasty. Google it. It wasn't hidden as you expect but still somebody could have activated it.

    And of course, no jailbreak. I had an iphone4pod for about a week while Verizon was busy spanking their monkeys.... So yeah it'll be fine. Just an iPod
    Also thanks or heads up
    On copy10

    I think you should stick where you are at... Just uninstall that program from
    Cydia... It's not spyware per say, as it was installed deliberately....
    Just remove that program! And stick at 5.1.1 until iOS6 has all the kinks worked out and the untethered jb is out

    It has an option to be removed from cydia but still remain installed. That's the problem, if you make an account you can remove it from cydia but it can track anything you do. Sadly I tried to restore my phone to 5.1.1 with a custom ipsw but it doesn't work. My itunes keeps giving me errors like the 1602.... Modified the hosts file, tried iRev, tried Tinyumbrella, still cannot restore. :/

    Can't you use ifile and remove all the remnants?? I don't believe it cant be removed...
    Also to restore to 5.1.1 you need to get a clean 5.1.1 and then use redsnow to build a custom 5.1.1 using your blobs...
    You need tiny umbrella which you have and the newest iTunes which you have I think...
    Then
    1. Put your phone into pwned dfu with redsnow,
    2. Turn in tiny umbrella and run he TSS server
    3. Right click restore in iTunes and select your custom firmware.
    4. the restore will run through and then fail at the end. (it's ok)
    5. Use redsnow to kick your phone out of recovery.
    At this point unplug your phone, it should reboot and give you the "first run" setup options...
    Clean, stock, new iOS 5.1.1!!!
    This method is known to work and all steps must be followed....
    I personally have done it.

    The restore disn't work for me. I tried with tinyumbrella, iReb etc. Did not work especially that redsnow couldn't make me a custom ipsw because it said I downloaded the wrong version. Sadly it was the good version, tried with the 5.1.1 i4 cmda and the 6 iphone 4 cmda. Anyway I wasted one day of my life trying to restore this phone and in the end I updated it to iOS 6 official. Now redsnow doesn't recognize the firmware again so i can jailbreak it, but i don't mind id it's not JB now.

    How about the tethered jailbreak?
    It's in it's infancy. It's a developer beta and not the normal beta.... Unless you're good with the commands etc, I would stay away for now.
