Will an iOS reinstall make a jailbroken-iPhone "supported by Apple"? Similarly, does such an iOS reinstall "reset" the iPhone (jailbroken or not) back to a "clean, factory default" state?

I have an iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1 I'd like to jailbreak to at least install better Google Voice integration like GVIntegrated.
