I read in a couple of other threads on these forums that the Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Content and Settings won't work on a Jailbroken 4S phone running 5.1.1. Using that procedure will throw the phone into an unrecoverable loop. Is it possible to remove all traces of the recent jailbreak from a 4S phone running 5.1.1.? And, if so, what is the procedure? I used Absinthe 2.0.4 to jailbreak.
Same thing is happening to me and some other guy on the forums. :/ I never connected my iPod to PC since I bought, the time now I that I want to, it wont work >.>
can you restore last backup from itunes after doing an itunes restore?

Plug in phone to PC, power off. Hold menu and power button for 10 seconds, release power button but continue to hold menu for an additional 30 seconds. The screen is now black and the phone is in DFU mode. Open Itunes on your computer, it will pop up and say it sees an Iphone in recovery mode and prompt you to update and restore. Agree to the prompts and sit back/relax as Itunes downloads the latest IOS and flashes unjailbroken firmware to your device. It will reboot as a stock, wiped device.
I've done this countless times on multiple devices so I can confirm it works.
