    They actually check to see if it is activated. If it is not activated, they tell you must activate it through ATT before they can look at it. In all honesty, take the microwave option seriously...

    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.
    I'd think they look at individual serial numbers, not just the 4th and 5th digits (the week number). They'll have a list of serials of all the phones they sold, with the exact configuration, the country where it was sold, etc. Wouldn't surprize me if it was an automated process (software gets serial number, checks with database, compares with current configuration, red-flags if it doesn't look logical)...

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Then why did you mention the GUI?

    At fist i agreed that BL downgrade should NOT be default, and i said that to zibri several times.

    But now i'm convinced that BL downgrade is the safest. Reason? How many thousand people don't you think will "brick" their phones when apple releases a "hack-proof" update (1.2.0 maybe), and the stupid people upgrades firmware without knowing what they do, and then get stuck on the new unhackable baseband because they have 4.6 bootloader? Yes, probably an exploit will be found, but no one knows for sure or how long time that will take.

    That's why i mean that BL downgrade is the safest for the stupid ones, who are likely to upgrade when new firmwares are released.

    And i'm pretty sure that using old basebands on new firmware like you must if you don't downgrade BL, may cause some (minor) problems - it's safest to use the baseband corresponding to the main firmware - that's probably how it was designed to run (not necessarly though).

    I can't offer exchanges on bricked phones because i don't know the process in detail. Ask Zibri, maybe he can offer exchanges But i think he won't, mostly because people would just scam him

    Back to topic:

    Thread starter: Deliver the phone to Apple, and see what they do. The worst that can happen is that they won't fix it for you. And you can't excactly blaim anyone if not, because i think you were fully aware of that hacking is against Apples warranty. Most likely, they will fix it for you. DO NOT put it in the micro or do any damage to it. Please report back the results so that everyone will know

    Not sure how the rules are in your country, but in my country Apple couldn't reject warranty because of hacking, if they can't proove that your hacking might be the cause of the damage. Obviously, a faulty button couldn't be caused by hacking.
