    Can you restore it?
    If not you are probably out of luck, think it says there is no warranty if jailbroken.

    There is always private stores that can fix the phone so its able to boot.
    There was also a rumor that the ones that are jailbroken leave a small trace that developers can find. But many lack the knowledge of seeing this.

    I dont know if its true.

    I don't know about Flash memory but on a HDD it's fairly easy to find "Old" deleted stuff, unless written over multiple times.
    So, they might find something but I think they won't even search for it, too much time involved.
    He should just try, if they reject, nothing lost and go somewhere else.

    Unless written over multiple times? So you mean, like, if I format my iPhone 5 10 times its a secured action telling me this is almost impossible to trace? :)

    But ye, thats true, too much time involved as you state.

    The iPhone is encrypted and when you do a wipe, the key is destroyed and a new one generated. Without the old key, you won't be getting the old data even if it hasn't been overwritten.

    Thanks, I didn't know that.
    That's why I said, I don't know about (iPhones)flash.

    But if that's the case, even Apple wouldn't find out

    ofcourse they can, who do you think has the key for the encryption?

    It's a question if they will go that far.

    If you have an warranty issue restore to stock and bring it in to an Apple store.

    Ah, yes, Apple has the key.

    That is, if he can restore.(Might have a hardware issue)

    Apple does not have the key. It is generated on the phone and stored on the phone.

    and apple designed the phone, software, encryption.

    The encryption is done by some algorythm, which apple happens to have developed, they can, but if they will is another matter.
