    May be useful to refurbish a phone before returning to Apple for service

    So that was completed, then I pressed Restore in iTunes with the phone and reset it back to 1.1.4 again. And I told it to start as a new phone and not use my backup of my phone.

    Will this be enough so that Apple techs won't recognize my jailbreak? Did I do what I fully needed to?

    Many thanks!
    Restoring your phone will do nothing to a bootloader. If your phone came with the 4.6bl and it has now been downgraded to 3.9, this cannot be undone at this time. A simple entry of a keycode brings up something similar to the field services app (which every Genius at the Apple store can and does do), will reveal that your bootloader does not match what the factory put there.

    I hope for your sake, that your phone is old and came with 3.9. And I hope this will be a lesson to people of why z*phone is not recommended. We can only pray that Z will release yet another release that removes the downgrade from refurb.

    Lord allmighty, I never thought I'd hear myself say I pray for a Z release!!! Please excuse me while I go rinse out my mouth with Draino.

It was not for me, so I wanted to uninstall it, which I believe I did with trying to uninstall the programs from the Install.app application. But the icon was still on the phone when I upgraded to 1.1.4 when it came out. I believe I just pressed the restore button in iTunes instead of just upgrading when it was available. I'm not sure if that matters though.

    Anywho, two days ago my phone's wake/sleep button is firmly pressed down and it's not coming back up. So I called up Apple and they'll send the box to get it replaced. But I just spoke with a second Apple tech and asked about if this is going to be a problem if I used the jailbreak method (it was the only option I used with Ziphone). He mentioned that the only way things will be fine when the tech team with Apple gets the phone is if they don't recognize or see any changes made with the phones software (jailbreaking). He said that as long as the system is restored and every trace of the jailbreaking program is gone, there won't be a problem.

    So now I need to know if what I did when upgrading to 1.1.4 was enough so the techs won't notice that I did have the software on there. Do I need to downgrade to 1.1.3? Or after restoring, choose "New iPhone" instead of backing up my old phone's information? My preliminary thinking is I want to restore the software to do the settings when I first got the phone (1.1.3).

    That will be the death blow to his warranty!

    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Yeah don't open it, that'll be stupid. Playing around with the hardware on ANYTHING will completely ruin the warranty, in most cases.

    I think the only thing your going to have to do is gamble. Restore everything back to normal, send it to apple and hope for the best.

    I mean put it this way, if they find you have jailbroken it.. they can't keep it or anything, at most they'll refuse to fix it... and if thats the case your warranty will be long gone, so if you know anybody who could fix the phone, do that.. after they send it back.

    I personally don't think they'll be bothered too much, jailbreaking/unlocking ect doesn't effect them as much as it does the service provides who have them huge contracts. Plus if it's an easy hardware fix i doubt they'll spend ages checking everything to see if it's been messed around with THEN go to the trouble of sending it back unfixed. It'll probably be easier for them to just fix it and send it back.

    If I was you I would take it to an Apple store - as if its busy they may just swap it over - whilst if its posted back to them they may pay more attention to it.

    Of course the main question is when did you get the phone? if it was an older phone that your bootloader is still the same so it may be a whole lot of bother about nothing!

    why did u do that!!! if u only used Jailbreak....a normal Restore was enough!!

    even if u unlocked it...a normal restore to 1.1.4 is enough!!!
