how much time it will take to reset the iphone 4 (ios 4.3.2 - Base Band : 04.10.01)to factory unlock settings from iphone but not through itunes. i was waiting for about 12 hours but still it's going on..?

Initially I jailbreak-ed the iphone 4 (ios 4.3.2 - Baseband : 04.10.01) with redsn0w but after jailbreak the phone is locked and wifi is also not working so i tryed to reset back to factory unlock settings but i was waiting for almost 12 hours but there the iphone is still showing the loading. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't ever use the "Erase All Content and Settings" button in Settings when you have a jailbreak - it won't work and your device will just be stuck on the loading screen forever. Put your device into DFU mode (hold down the home and sleep buttons for 10 seconds, then release the sleep button but keep holding home for another 10 seconds) and restore with iTunes.

i can't restore with itunes. iTunes seems to be fine but when i click on restore, the iTunes automatically closes.And the main reason i want to restore is my iphone is a factory unlock once but as i jail broke the device the device tells " UNABLE TO LOAD NETWORK LIST ". So what should i do guys please help me out.

That's bizarre, I've never heard of that error and I've never heard of iTunes closing when clicking restore. Do you have another computer you can try?

Thanks ... Yeah i have tried in PC and Laptop but same story. so is there any better way to restore. But i have not tried with older versions of iTunes.

You're saying iTunes immediately closes upon clicking the Restore button on two different computers??????

Yes. what should i do even wifi is not working. Is there a way to restore using Redsn0w or any other tool.

(28 Oct '12, 01:04) shady205 shady205's gravatar image

Yes, but I think you have bigger problems, doubt it would work. You can try redsn0w though. Extras-> Even more-> Restore

tnx. I will try it. if there is any other way please guide me

(28 Oct '12, 01:15) shady205 shady205's gravatar image

There's no other way. What you're saying makes me think you have a weird virus on both your computers, or you're living inside a nuclear reactor or something.
