iPhone 4 Jailbreak to remove encrypt password
- date: June 13, 2011
I am looking to jailbreak my iphone 4 running iOS 4.3.3 to remove the encrypt password on my backups. I checked that setting in iTunes and now I want to remove it but it is not recognizing my passord. I have tried various combinations and still no luck. I've read that if I jailbreak I can remove the keychain-2.db file and this will remove the password on the backups.
The reason I want to do this is in case anything ever happens to my phone or if i want to upgrade I won't be able to restore since the backups are locked with the password.
So in jailbreaking my phone will I be losing my current settings and any data (music, apps, phones, etc)? Is there a way to jailbreak and still keep my current settings and setup? From reading the tutorials it appears that you load a custom ipsw file and then you pretty much start from scratch.
Thanks for all your help with this.
