    Most of you know that somewhere in 2.x.x apple announced pass-code wipeout, meaning within a given amount of passcode fails(10, can be changed) the iPod/iPhone would wipe it self out.

    Now, for instance, say you're jailbroken and your home button breaks, so now you're basically doomed because you can't get into DFU mode, would using the passcode fail wipeout clear the jailbreak?

    Just for clarification, can someone please test this out, i would appreciate it

    Hm...i dont think so...it says that it only delete music, videos and personal info, not a system wipeout or a semi-restore...lol

    I dont think so, the way they explain how it works, it only says that it completly delete the things that you already have "deleted", but it says that it dosnt delete current data...its kinda confusing, but it dosnt delete anything on the System Partition...

    If I remember correctly, iWipe deletes the free space on your device to prevent the recovery of deleted data (or maybe I'm thinking of another one of John Zdziarski's tools that just came out on the App Store...hmm...).
