    I have an I phone 3GS 32gb that I need to reset the passcode. What software do I need to use to do this.

    Ask the person who set up the passcode what it is? Doofus

    All you can do is restore the phone and set it up as a new phone. You will lose all data that was on the phone.

    SSH into your phone and delete the file /Library/Keychains/keychain-2.db and reboot.
    It will delete ALL stored passwords including email, wifi, lockscreen, etc

    ^lolz, just blew my whole day up. I wonder if this same path would work on a non-jailbroken phone. Huh, I'll have to do my homework.

    Don't assume he doesn't know how to restore, but we can assume he knows how to SSH and find where the hell /Library/Keychains/keychain-2.db is?

    Are you mad? Or is it something else?

    And the ASSuMe thing; Please don't.

    He does? I doubt it. He's probably sold his stolen 3GS to the dude in the next trailer cos it was all too complicated for him

    A friend of mine forgot her passcode on a non-jailbroken iPhone 3G, that makes it a little harder...

    You can't really go about and ask for help, because everyone'll think you've stolen that iPhone.

    Anyway, with some time invested in it, I was able to reinstall the same firmware version, removing all passcodes in the process, but keep all data on the phone.

    Just google for it, the information you need is really out there, but you'll have to figure out some of the pieces of the puzzle yourself.

    You can do this on a non-jailbroken iPhone. However, you would have to create a custom RAM disk, upload and boot from it. This will give you temporary access to the full file system (and all the priveleges like on a proper jailbroken iphone) and could simply use a payload/script to automatically delete the file and reboot phone back to normal mode. This way the phone will stay un-jailbroken with the passcode removed.

    The only thing is, I never was able to find a way to create, upload and/or boot a custom RAM disk with the current tools available. They are all outdated, so you would have to code your own tools for this to work.
