Hey, Good stuff. Just curious: Anyone trying this with 2.1 firmware? When I run umount I receive \"Killed\" immediately. Doesn\'t seem to be working. I thought maybe there was an updated version of umount in the 2.1 build, but I can\'t find it anywhere. Any thoughts? Maybe this is no longer necessary due to the new erase features in 2.1? Thanks.

I\'m getting the exact same error, been searching all night. Have you found any other info? Maybe editing fstab?

wow, seriously dont try it! if you dont know that you have to run \"ldid -S /sbin/umount\" then you probably shouldnt be messeing around with your iphone. Becuase the CIA dosent want to retrive your data off your old iphone this is completely unnessecary.
