“Hi there! My husband had jailbroken my iPhone 4 and installed Cydia on my iPhone, but I didn’t like it so wanted to delete it from the phone. I connected my iPhone to iTunes and tried to restore and update it to the latest iOS version. However, iTunes was unable to restore the phone giving an error back and don’t even switch on!! I really need help!”

“I tried to use Redsnow (regret it) to jailbreak my iPhone, but the apps downloaded from Cydia didn’t work and just crashed. I guessed I might fail to jailbreak my iPhone. Now all I need is a tool to restore my iPhone to factory setting. Please I am frustrated and annoyed that I can’t just reset it all with iTunes because I have a bunch of contacts and photos on my iPhone that I have added later but forgot to back up with iTunes again.
