    I got given a jailbroken iphone today and i resetted on the way home - cus i needed to delete all the contacts and stuff but now it got frozen and it's not working at all!! =(

    i connected it to my laptop and my latptop is not even detecting it!!

    Please please help, i am really desperate! =(

    If I can't do anything by myself, then would it be a problem to take it to the mobile shop to get it fixed? i mean it was jailbroken before it got frozen and jailbreaking IS illegal isn' it? =(

    Tips for a jailbroken iphone:

    • You never reset from the iphone.
    • You don't restore (unless it's an emergency), because you'll lose your jailbreak and unlock
    • You don't upgrade your OS
    • You always ask advice on the forums when you mess with the OS or try to erase something

    Jailbreaking isn't illegal, the library of congress posted a DMCA exemption specifically for jailbreaking.
