Hello, I am trying to restore my iPhone to iOS 4.3.5 in order to remove its jailbreak as some of the apps that I have downloaded from Cydia makes my device a bit laggy and unresponsive. I have also noticed a significant decrease in battery life after the jailbreak. However, I am getting error 1618 every time I am trying to restore iOS 4.3.5. Is this because of the jailbreak? Please help.

Well, iTunes error 1618 has nothing to do with the jailbreak (or software that was used to jailbreak your iPhone). In fact, this error is not related to your iOS device. iTunes is throwing error 1618 to you because the application is not working properly and there are some missing system files or corrupt data on your iTunes. To fix this, you have to uninstall your iTunes and then install the latest version. You can see this blog post to know more and download the new iTunes 10.4.1 for Mac OS X or Windows.
