    before you say this is posted, i searched and none are updated. i dont want to revive an old thread. also if this is the wrong section than srry just thought it relates to the 4.1 jailbreak.

    so now to my question

    since jailbreaking is legal now, does jailbreaking void your warrenty still?

    it does, but if you do a DFU restore it wipe all traces making jailbreak not findable making the warrenty valid again

    Jailbreak has ALWAYS been legal (since the 1.0 days). And it will ALWAYS void warranty. The only special thing now is that the US government made another official announcement saying it was legal... It is required to unlock your iPhone which is why it was legal since the 1.0 days.

    Yeah but if they cant tell it was jailbroken, then no warranty is voided.

    correct, the way u make it not visible to any jailbroked is a DFU restore and set it up as a new devices instead of restoring from backup

    The warranty is voided while jailbroken, even if they don't know.

    I once had a broken headphone jack, so i restored it and brought it back to the mac-house( premium reseller) and they accepted it and i got a new one

    also note that if your phone is broken in a way it wont turn on anymore you have high chance of getting a new phone instead of being it repaired ( if its warranty tough ) since it costs more money to fix it

    I have gotten my self in situations that others don't and really panicked.
    for example: i got my NAND corrupted. Well thats awsome, how the flip did i do that?
