    A jailbroken phone such as an iPhone 4 is tethered, which means that every time you reboot or shut off your phone, you need to start the program that jailbreaks your device on your computer in order to start up the phone with the jailbreak.

    An untethered jailbreak doesn't require this (but it's only old 3GS and older that is untethered), so yours cannot be that way.

    Given that you don't know if the jailbreak is tethered or untethered, and don't know the basics such as how to put the phone in recovery mode mode, can I suggest that after you go to the apple store and lie to them, possibly committing warranty fraud that you and your buddies DONT jailbreak again til learning about your phone? :)
    Seriously though. iPhones aren't toys. You shouldn't be doing this jailbreak without knowing some basic things.

    Best of luck, hope apple can fix it. (I'm sure they can).

    Just take it to an Apple store, show them that it won't boot. Say you tried to restore it and it didn't work, and ask if they can try it. They should be able to restore the firmware for you without a problem :)

    Correct

    Incorrect

    The warranty was voided when you jailbroke the phone, regardless of what you say at the Apple store.

    Can't believe not a single person here told you this. All you would of needed to do is 'just boot tethered' in Redsn0w and that would kick it out of recovery mode. Simple as that and would not of needed any law breaking techniques.

    In This Thread: People with beat up iPhone's jealous that OP got a new(ish) phone.

    To the OP: You obviously shouldn't be jailbreaking. You don't even know the basics. In the future, if you're going to be voiding the warranty of your $500+ device, make sure you have done thorough research beforehand.

    people jump into jailbreaking without doing basic couple hours research. this is one example on why people should do at least a little homework on it 1st. ts got lucky but his phone could have easily been fixed. Also Apple could have easily recognized it was jailbroken and denied warranty. TS don't try jailbreaking again for a while.. Oh and there is no untethered jb for 5.0.1 I4 at the moment.
