    Hi all,

    My touch screen does not respond at all. Its a 16gb, 1.1.3, unloacked, activated, and jailbroken via ziphone.

    Before I go into Apple my question is this:

    Should I restore via Itunes or via Ziphone?

    Thanks.

    Jeff

    Did you ever drop it and is it only on apps (like the home screen works). Restore.

    Wait ziphone downgraded you bootloader to 3.9 from 4.6 if it was a new phone. If it is a new one apple will know you unlocked it if you used ziphone. Try pwning it and upgrading the bootloader back to 4.6 so your not voiding your warranty.

    i dont totally understand bootloaders, but i had that app that tells you the stats on your device (aka bootloader version among others). I got that app just to see what my bootloader was after ziphone and it was 4.6.

    My only issue with apple is if they ask for a working activated SIM, which i obviously can't give them.
