    Default Question about restoring and moding
    I've been reading the Windows Modding 101 and 102, and just had a simple question.

    Since I will be putting a lot of files into the iphone, such as jailbreak, and everything else, and say I had to do something that required me taking my phone to Apple to get it repaired, can I simply plug it up to iTunes and do an iPhone restore to delete all of those files / programs / changes I did to the iPhone? Or do those core files stay on the iPhone no matter what?

    I tried searching for this but didn't quite know exactly what to look for, so I didn't find an answer. Sorry!

    So are you saying that even if I do a restore they can find out that I've been modding it?

    Nono, im saying that if you DO take it back and its modded.. they might take the warrenty away. if you do a restore they won't find out so you'll be good
