    Default About Restoring Iphone 5 After Jailbreak To Get Warranty Back
    which one is more efficient to get my warranty back without detecting my phone was jailbreak, restore as new phone or from backup after jailbreak?
    i've read in someone's thread that we need to do a "reset" to our iphone before restore with itunes
    in other threads, they said restore in DFU mode. i dont want to leave any evidence about jailbreak in my phone before i send it back to apple. sorry for my english. Please help!

    Restore as new I would say to git rid of all evidence.

    Negative. A DFU restore without setting up the phone again (or restoring from backup) should suffice.

    If you do a restore from "true DFU mode", it will wipe the phone. Then setup as new to give you as close to you can get to one right out of the box.
