Yeah, but you'll need it to be running stock 5.1.1, unjailbroken because they will not help you if the device is modified in any way.

If it runs normally and just turning it off causes it to malfunction, then hardware is a possibility.

As far as the firmware being scrambled up, I believe that is due to "operator error" as I like to call it (based on all the preceding posts).
