if anyone can confirm: i heard "hacking" (loading 3rd party software onto iPhone) is safe. just as long as you reset your phone before going to the Apple store for problems. is this true? cause i see a lot of wild apps on youtube that people are adding. its pretty good stuff to be missing out on. i mean is it possible to permanently fu*k up your phone from these 3rd party apps? and if so, can you simply reset the phone and take it to Apple for repair because the 3rd party apps fu*ked it up (w/o telling Apple that ofcourse)? also, if 3rd party apps mess your phone up, you can just simply reset it and its new again right?
:confused:

i'd say more of modding your iPhone, and its so dang fun and addicting. i changed my layout so many time over along side with all the softwares and apps and dohickeywhatnots

For the most part, yeah. But some things can be busted that are unfixable.

Example: I had hacked my phone, but then decided to stick to the normal way and i turns out that my iPhone can no longer completely restore. It restores the firmware, but when replacing the data (Notes, Texts, Stocks, etc.) it says "Could restore 'iPhone' due to a timeout". So I have to do everything manually.

So, yes, there is always a risk to hacking.

could you just take it to Apple for repair? instead of having to do it manually?

Great choice! I have the same combo and now looking at a black Sony DSC T100 to complete the family.

Black is beautiful, specially iPhones and Macbooks (Actually even my car is black):cool:

Welcome and enjoy!
