Do I really need to restore my phone for this to work? I followed every single step except for that one, it took about 10 minutes for my phone to reboot, I didn\'t have any problems, but after the reboot my phone turned back on and it\'s as if I never jailbroke it. Nothing changed my phone is completely normal what is this jailbreak thing supposed to be like? What did I do wring?
