Thread: Have to take phone into Apple. Need Help!

  1. #1
    Default Have to take phone into Apple. Need Help!
    Ok I have an unlocked and jb iphone 3gs on 4.0.1. I bought this phone on craigslist a few months back and it still has a warranty. I took it in a few months ago when my backlight went out and had they fixed it. Problem is I restored it just to be safe and then had to wait weeks for the jailbreak.

    I have to take it in today because I cracked the glass and was wondering if I could just leave it unlocked. Will they fix it? Should I restore it? If I restore it, will I be able to jailbreak it?

    I really need some help. Thanks in advance!

    Why don't you just buy a new screen on eBay? They aren't going to fix your screen for free lol.

    True, do it yourself and they will not give you a replacement for a cracked screen and is not under warranty too.

    Apple doesn't fix screens the just give you a refurbished one its going to cost 199 and for that price you might as well buy a new screen and digi off ebay for 60 and just replace it your self.

    Wow, so cool, no questions ask ,gave you a new 3gs wonderful.

    Download tiny umbrella and click save shsh , see what you have in TU before you do anything. I think you TU can recognize your iphone in Emergency mode, check it out, let me know.

    Edit : I couldn't believe it that they didn't charge you for a broken Screen.

    Yes, it is your lucky day, make sure you don't drop your iphone this time, use a rubber case to protect it.

    No, TU doesn't activate for you. I think you have 4.1, jailbreak with Limerra1n from emergency screen and see.

    OR, if you want to restore to an activated custom firware of 4.1, i can give it to you.

    Go to setting > general > about > check your modem firmware. If it is not 05.14.xx, then you can unlock with Ultrasn0w.
