    I am glad you're ok with "it"; just because one of the Apple techs was nice does not mean that the genius in the store or whomever may open your package at the repair shop will be "nice". If I were you I would have my mother take it in and look pitful and sad that it's broken.........

    Geez, what is with the morals here? Why don't you go the whole hog and tell them you're terminally ill, undergoing chemotherapy but only have a few months left to enjoy your iPhone?

It doesn't need to be analyzed: the Genius or a manager should be willing to replace or refund the phone.
    i dont have to show u proof bc i honestly dont really care if u believe me or not....i have many friends who work at apple and who work at the genius bar and ive taken two iphones to the store before that had been unlocked and ive seen the software they use to check ur phone.....1 they check every iphones software whether the flaw is sofrware or hrdwase based....they wil always plug it in and check and to be honest the only way they cant see that its bl was downgraded is if its completely fried and non responsive 2 they check everything they even get suspicious when uve had ur iphone for months and never activated it bc they even check at&ts database to see if u activated it. 3 theyre trained to be mean to ppl who heck their iphones. 4 once they see he downgraded the bootloader they will refuse to fix any part of the iphone and ive even heard but im not too sure about this that once they see u messed with their sw theyll put u down on a list in case u try to go to another apple store or something...regardless of all of this i invite this guy to give it a try bc it cant hurt him and if it fails he can send it to another repair shop or even fix it himself bc it doesnt sound too hard to fix...

    they are anything but nice especially to our community and people like us...ive heard many stories about them giving ppl who brought it in with unlocked or jailbroken iphones long speeches after refusing to fix it

    Well the way I see this is.....


    you have 2 options.


    a) send it in. I highly doubt they will check the BL version. Sure they might see it and then look at the serial/imei number and think "mmh...we didnt send any weeks 50 iphones with BL 3.9. Let's blacklist it"

    But there is always the chance that they just think it may have been send off as a 3.9BL and not as 4.6BL.
    Downgrade BL is not part of the "Jailbreak" process.


    or

    b) If you/your friend is not on ATT. Sign an ATT contract for 30 days. Call Apple again tell them that youre an ATT customer with this issue, they'll help you more... OR take it to an Apple store where they can and hopefully replace it for you.


    or...

    seriously microwave it

    I really am at AT&T customer... So you think the best odds is just to send it in and hope for the best? I think I'll do that.

    don't forget to restore and please tell us how it goes because there are others in the same boat however its just the bootloader is downgrade and the phone works fine. Good luck
