    Hello. My iPhone has a faulty lock button; it is very difficult to lock. Basically it's stuck. I also have a faulty home button, its really unresponsive.
    I have an appointment to take my iPhone to a genius on Saturday, to get a replacement. However, my iPhone is jailbroken. I haven't tampered with it AT ALL, just jailbroke it, installed a few apps, deleted them, and basically have nothing on there now instead of cydia. I have an iPhone 4 on ioS 5.

    My question is: I know I should restore it if Im taking it to Apple. However, Im scared of bricking it and it not working at all, as I have to restore and update. Will it be okay to restore and update? Should I just leave it hoping the genius people won't find out it's jailbroken?
    My plan was to restore it on Saturday morning and then if something DOES happen, just take it to them in the afternoon and say it died on me, lol.

    What should I do? Leave it, or do you think it's okay to restore?

    They will not repair your iPhone if it is jailbroken. Best to back it up and restore.
