    Lol, you win. You didn't move one thread "discussion" to another and you didn't counter my legit answer with an ad hom attack. Happy now or will you need the last word?

    Replacement

    Hi
    Just to clear this up I got my iPad replaced by apple store today.
    I have had my iPad for about 4 weeks and have the wifi screen brightness fault, so on Saturday I took my imported jail broken iPad back to the apple store (after I restored it), I told them about the wifi fault the guy looked at my ipad hooked it up to his Mac did a hard restore checked to see if this had fix the wifi problem as it had not he ordered me a replacement iPad which I collected from store today

    So to clear this up you can jail break and return to store no problems

    I messed mine up bad yesterday. Had to wait till I got home to restore, once done no issues at all, ran like it did before JBing.

    Here's a scenario:

    What if you have a JB'ed iPad and it suddenly dies....I mean totally dead so you can't even restore it. Won't Apple see that you voided the warranty making you SOL?

    If it's completely dead how do you expect THEM to find out?

    ...say the power pack was bad on your unit (or something like that) and when the tech installs a new battery, he sees your iPad in all it's JB glory :D

    While the scenario of a bad battery is not likely within the 1 year warranty period, that is a risk of jailbreaking.

    If it happens, it happens. Apple will simply charge you for the repair. I, and many others in the JB world, have had warranty work and replacement done on JB'd devices. No problems. As stated, if you cannot restore the device (assuming you know what you are doing), either can the Genius at the Bar.

    Life is short. The iPad is a toy. To JB or not to JB, who really cares. If you're stressing over JB'ing a device, then JB'ing is definitely not for you.

    The op asked the cons of jail breaking. I mentioned warranty violation as a con. Others have countered that your unlikely to get caught, which is also true. No need to keep derailing the op's thread with a debate on returning jb'd ipads.

    Con: People constantly asking how you got your iPad to do things theirs cant.

    I now hide all my JB icons.

    They don't replace dead batteries, they give you a refurbished iPad.
