Thanks for your replies. I am not going to try whatever on my iPad. To be honest, I just get into the idea that some of the apps on Cydia are really trustworthy. I was on business trip recently and by chance I was talking all way long with some experienced jailbreak'er on the plane. Few days after I explored Big Boss apps and somehow it get me convinced to go for it
I was asking about restoring just in case I will need to upgrade to 4.3 or newer for any reason or claiming warranty.
Stock 4.2 OS is quite good for me. The only problem it has, from my perspective, is the multitasking "crap". The device cannot handle multitasking with so limited resources yet it clutter all the apps in background. Just saw on youtube how it is handled in 4.3 and I am very disappointed - it is still long way from being usefull. Besides I really doubt the wisedom to upgrade into an OS designed to run on a dev with twice as much RAM and twice the processing power inspite whatever the manufacturer claims. Just like we were being triced to install Vista some time ago
Anyway no point to elaborate the reasons. Thanks again for clarification on the backups. I feel somehow more safe with modding my iPad

I just removed the jailbreak and can share that it was not so easy, it was holding my breath for a while...
Playning with cydia apps (most rated ones all over the forum) I found places when my iPad gets frozen. Besides 99% of the apps are iPhone oriented and looks ugly on iPad so I just decided to get rid of it.
I found on some posts that simple restoring via iTunes will not remove cydia apps from the iPad and they will eat space indefinitely so before restoring I uninstalled everything from cydia including cydia itself - that was bad! From that point I was left with little silver apple on the screen Hopefully there is DFU restore mode (google how to turn it on...) and I got new clean iOS on my iPad.
Now there is another big dissapointment although I now have 4.3 there is no multitasking gestures I just found on the web that it is not any problem of my iPad, apple really decided to not release it to consumers. Now I am waiting for proper jailbreak for 4.3 or update of official multitasking gestures. At least backgrounder and activator from cydia worked perfectly.
I laughed when u said u uninstalled cydia itself..*****. U did good uninstalling the other stuff but when u restore, the cydia app will get deleted. I posted about that earlier about how jailbroken apps data will remain in ur device still eating up memory space unless u uninstall them b4 the restore. Glad to hear u found out about DFU mode and got a clean iOS install.
For the record, multitouch gestures is only avai. On developers version of iOS 4.3. Apple allowed them to test it out. It's locked within iOS for normal users. There is an article in Gizmodo or Redmondpie that describes how to go about getting multitouch gestures.
I felt the same way to when I first jailbroke or really everytime..lmao mim like man, I hope I donfpt f$&@ up my iPad. Cuz I wouldn't be able to take it to the apple store to get fixed. Thankfully we have hard reset and DFU mode to get us out of trouble. With cydia apps, u have to wait till description loads fully and thoroughly inspect it to make sure it'll run on iPad also. If not, u could get ur iPad into trouble downloading and installing something not meant for it. I had that happen once months ago n got myself outta that jam. Lol I learned my lesson n very weary now about what I download n install from cydia. ;-)
I guess some "category" or "tested on" should be required field for all cydia apps so you could filter by your current iOS and device. I bet that if I could downgrade my iPad to 3.2 than all the cydia tweeks will run like at home Community developers do not have enough hardware to test their work properly so it's always ~10% chance something will not work on your version.
Anyway, it's a serious bug in Cydia that it allows to uninstall itself if it is required on jailbroken idevice. I cannot guess what was the reason to allow doing that
hi guys ,,,
I have problem in my i-phone 4. I want to update my iPhone but the problem is I can't make restore.
Actually, I made jillbreak to my iPhone
please, help me
If you have a jailbroken phone you can only restore it through iTunes if you first put it into DFU mode. Here is a paste of the instruction on how to do this on the iPad from one of our sticky threads, but it also works on iPhone...

In order to put your device into DFU mode you must press the "home" and "power" buttons together for EXACTLY 10 seconds at which point you must release "power" but continue to hold "home". After about 15 seconds, the device will enter DFU mode. There is no way to tell from the screen that this has happened as it will remain black. If you see the Apple logo you got the timing wrong. You can just try again until you get it right. It is perfectly normal for the iPad to reset at the 7 second mark. Do not be put off by this. The timing of your button release must be exactly 10 seconds. It is best not to even look at the screen as this will only put you off. You may like to try using your watch to get the timing precise.
If everything went to plan, iTunes should now recognise a device in DFU mode and prompt you to restore it. It may take a few seconds for Windows to install DFU mode drivers if this is the first time you have used it. DO NOT interrupt the process. Otherwise iTunes will never recognise the device and you'll have to do a bit of maintenance in the control panel to get things working.
Hope that helps. Since you are looking for iPhone support you might like to try our sister site for device specific assistance @ iphoneforums.net
