I purchased a new iPhone 5 today and want to erase all the data on my iPhone 4s 16 GB before I sell it. It is Jailbroken and on iOS 5.1.1. I went into Settings, etc. and started the Reset. My phone has been showing the round rotating circle for the past 5 hours. I do not want to do a restore from iTunes because I want to leave the iOS at 5.1.1. I have a buyer and he does not want 6.0.

I had that issue when I sold my Jb 4s a few months ago... Only way is to sync with iTunes unfortunately...

Are you plugged into iTunes? If you are unplug & go into settings>general>rest>erase all contents & settings.

VOLS34, That did not work. I contacted the guy that wants my iPhone and he said iOS6 was OK. I restored from iTunes. About 10 minutes ago he took ownership of the phone.
