    Yes, but if you run into anything bad that you would need an exchange, just restore your phone, and its good as new, then return it...

    What if the iphone is stuck in recovery mode will apple warranty be void?

    I performed a jailbreak on my iPhone (3GS, iOS 4.2.1) on a PC using Redsn0w 0.9.6b5 which upgraded my iPhone's baseband to the iPad's baseband of 06.15.00. After the jailbreak finished. Also, the Cydia app was just a white screen and would not open so I restarted the iphone and it went into a recovery loop and is now stuck at the recovery screen with the image of a usb cable pointing upwards towards the iTune disc symbol. I have tried several things in an attempt to resolve the problem but nothing has worked.

    I even called apple and they want to buy extended warranty

    If it's stuck like that they can't see if the phone is jailbroken. They'd try to restore it which would end up wiping out the jailbreak anyway if it worked. Or they try to restore and it fails. Either way, if the phone is stuck in recovery or won't turn on, under warranty they'll just give you another phone.

    I don't think it's right to **** up your phone doing risky beta jailbreak/unlock stuff and then expect apple to give you a new one.

    As true as that may be, how many honest people will you find here

    I think people really should know what they're doing before messing with their iPhones, but then again there's nothing we can do about it.
