so, something went wrong with my iPhone a couple of days ago; the center horizontal about-a-centimeter tall row of the touch screen doesn't work. i restored hoping that would fix it, but it didn't. the problem this creates is that i cannot turn on my wifi (because i cannot open the settings) to jailbreak and install installer to take off the carrier logo that will void that warranty that i need for Apple to fix my phone. i think i need to get installer on there, but i don't know how. im runnin on 1.1.2 just to make things tougher.

Well, you're gonna have to jailbreak it to get installer on it.

If you're not using an out-of-the-box 1.1.2, but an upgraded one, you'll have to do a search on how to jailbreak an iPhone that has been upgraded to 1.1.2. I hope this helps somewhat!

yes, i have restored it, but the carrier logo will not come off for some reason. i think if i can jailbreak it, install installer, and delete the carrier app i used (or change it to something other than JordanMobile so Apple wont immediately be able to tell its been modded) i should be fine. but since i cant access the settings, i don't know how to jailbreak without the use of wifi
