    If you did a full restore and are still having the problem they probably will not have any way of being able to tell that it was jailbroken.

    Try writing sentences that aren't a hundred words long.

    Put it to DFU Mode and take it back to the Genius Bar, book an appointment with another genius.

    If you put it to DFU mode there's no way a genius can tell from looking at it that it's been jailbroken unless it was the genius you saw before. Just book a different one and it will be all good. It's best if you go to another Apple Store.

    A friend of mine gave me once an iPhone to take to the apple store to have the battery replaced, I went there and I not even care to turn the phone on. When the genius turned it on, instead of an apple it had a pineapple on startup, the guy told me that he could replace the battery if he could restore the phone to a non jail broken state, at that point I was so pissed at my friend that I told the guy at the store to do what he thought it was necessary, he reinstalled the apple os, and gave me a refurb with a brand new battery. Florida mall store in Orlando.
