    So you can jailbreak your phone, and back it up, etc. and when you want to sell it or get it fixed from Apple under warranty, you can revert it back?

    Would Apple know if I went to the store with a cracked screen? I'm just worried because I heard jail breaking makes the warranty and Apple care invalid

    I think apple actually changed their rules And now it doesn't void warranty unless they prove that jail breaking caused the issue. If you went in with a cracked screen, they wouldn't care, but you could just restore via iTunes and they wouldn't know.

    Ok that clears up a lot... I will do some more research and might end up jail breaking my first iPhone.

    That's been the policy in the past. Which is why a restore is always recommended. A restore wipes the jailbreak.

    Just be certain if you do this that you put the phone in DFU mode first. A plain vanilla restore from iTunes or even worse, from the phone itself (Erase All Contents and Settings) will put the phone into a bootloop.

    Note that Apple is not so picky lately. One user here has reported getting service on a JB iPhone. The policy appears to have shifted to Apple having to prove that your jailbreak has caused the problem before they can deny you warranty.

    An out of warranty repair doesn't even matter though. They will simply ask you to restore before doing any work.

    Good luck. The feeling of freedom is like nothing else. I'm still writing my guide. I'm going to go really in depth and hopefully get it stickied.

    You're writing a guide to jailbreaking?

    If so, make sure you point out all the questions newbies ask repeatedly as well as all the dumbass mistakes people make because they don't bother to ask before hand.
