    Just bought my iPad and was wondering - if I jailbreak my iPad will that void my warranty?

    If you ever needed to take back your jailbroken iPad to apple for whatever reason, you would just want to restore it first - absolutely no evidence of it ever being jailbroken:)

    Suppose your jail broken iPad is totally bricked, can't be turned on to be restored, what then becomes of your warranty?

    Well if it really couldn't be turned on then nobody could tell it was jailbroken, so warranty still OK

    If your iPad becomes totally bricked, Apple wouldn't be able to see that it is jail broken, as it doesn't turn on anymore.

    You would go to an Apple Store, tell them that your iPad doesn't turn on anymore, which they can easily verify and then they will offer you a replacement

    iPad is impossible to brick. Apple has the hold the sleep and home button reset override everything. I have been in the middle of pwned dfu mode in the middle of a restore and the reset will kick it out.

    That trick does work. Even if not the first time, keep doing it and the iPad WILL come around eventually.

    Here is my personal experience with jailbreaking an Apple mobile device and their warranty...

    The first device I ever tried to JB was a 1st generation iPod Touch and it was nowhere near as seamless as it is now. Of course it didn't go well and I was almost ready to toss it in the dust bin because I couldn't get it un-stuck. Of course I knew I couldn't call Apple because I had just voided my warranty. But it was a toll-free number and the worst thing they could do was tell me that they couldn't (or wouldn't) help me.

    So I call and this woman comes on the line and asks about the nature of my call. I explain what I did and she said, "No problem, I can help you." As you can already imagine, all I had to do was do a hard reset and restore my iPod. Of course she didn't stay on the phone the whole time, but long enough to make sure it was working.

    So I asked her, "If my warranty had just been voided, why did she help me?" She said that if she had not helped me, there was a good chance I would have just thrown my iPod away and Apple would have most likely lost a customer, but by helping me restore my iPod, I would remember this experience and remain a (hopefully) loyal Apple customer who would continue to purchase content for my iPod and (hopefully) buy more Apple products in the future.

    And that is pretty much why I have an iPad now.

    Well since she is on 4.3.1, she should probably wait until an untethered version is released.

    Even though I have half the posts of demandarin. I wish there was a status above "iPad master". I think demandarin, me, and many others are past being a master.

    You are one of our youngest awesome contributors ~ you know that. But I think those little batteries are based on number of posts. Don't trip about them so much, really.:)



    I'm just scared ~ I have some friends at work that JB their iphones, and have offered to help me ~ but I just trust this place more.



    This is true!


    Wait............come...........back..........and get me!

    Well thanks for the shout out n recognition. You are right, there either needs to be a status above iPad master or delay iPad master till more posts are reached. iPad master starts at like 200-300 posts. Wayy to easy to obtain. Or they could add a rep points/thanks point system to where if someone found your post truly helpful, they could give u those points by just hitting a tab on their browser or whatever.
    Keep up the great work though, young sky walker, u will become a Jedi knight in no time. ;-). You are a lucky and very smart young man. I wish I had an iPad at your age. I'm not old, only 31, but you got a great head start. Definitely use the iPad to your advantage for schooling purposes, Seriously.

    Wow. Such humility and modesty.. :)
    I must be have been naive to say on another post that helping folks is fun. Apparently it's all about the rep and status. If I'd known I would have been posting replies like a mad man earlier... :D
    Now, where's that sarcasm tag?

    PS, can I be downgraded to an iPad n00b please?
