    Talking Apple wont replace your iphone because you voided your warranty? NO NEED TO WORRY!

    So, you're sitting there with your iphone, all hacked, but you did something wrong, and you cant go back because you just cant. And youre sitting there knowing if you call apple and want them to replace it, they wont because they will see that you hacked it.

    WHAT DO YOU DO?

    The solution is as easy as 1. 2. 3!

    1. Take iphone and place it on countertop

    2. pick up hammer

    3. smash hammer into screen

    Voila! your Iphone has now been damaged beyond the point where apple can see that you had hacked it! Just call them up, claim you dropped it, and send it in!

    i know a guy who hacked it and when it crashed apple refused to give him a new one sayong that the warranty has been voided, so he just put it in the microwave for 6 seconds. after that apple could not see the IMEI number or anything ,, it was fried, so they gave him a new one.

    It's really simple, actually. Just initiate a restore, and rip the cord out at the beginning, after it erases the OS but before it flashes the new one on. If it doesn't work, try again. I would assume there is a point where the iPhone would be bricked if the restore was interrupted, eg, not even the failsafe restore mode would work. If the iPhone is anything like an iPod though, then the restore mode is hard coded in rom, and it's impossible to brick. I don't think it is.

    Apple doesn't provide an insurance for accidental (or non-accidental in this case) damage....they will only replace the phone if it is in good condition, but the internallt he phone is malfunctioning....Apple does NOT provide insurance!! So don't try breaking it with a hammer and hoping that it gets replaced!
