Forgive me if this is old news, but I have not seen clear warnings about jailbreaking that indicate the possibility of irretrievably bricking an iDevice. Here is my personal experience. When I told my friend about my excitement about getting my hands on an iPad 2, he said he had been there and done that and wrecked his iPad through jailbreaking. He was fed up and offered to sell me his bricked iPad for next to nothing. When I got it it was stone dead. After ten minutes on the charger, with occasional attempts to reset it with the two-button maneuver, it finally came up with a "dead battery, charging" icon. Thirty minutes later it booted to the apple logo and froze with some crashy looking pixels on the right side of the screen...which I gather is characteristic of a failed JB. I tried putting it into DFU mode and my Mac wouldn't see it. I used the restore mode procedure and managed to get it to display the "connect to iTunes" icon, but iTunes still wouldn't see it. Seemed like game over. So I went to see an Apple genius and told him what I have told you. He confirmed it was a jailbreak gone bad and said there was nothing he could do for the unit (iPad 1 3G, 64GB). We agreed that technically the iPad was therefore out of warranty, and then to my delight he provided me with a replacement device at no charge. Doesn't it seem to you that if there was a way to recover the bricked iPad from the JB, I would have been able to at home, or the genius would have been able to do it in the store? Are there other cases of jailbreakers irretrievably bricking their iToys?
