This question has been bugging me for some time.
How does jailbreaking void any apple warranty when no software is changed? Sure, cydia is installed but this dosen't change the operating system in any way.
With android, there is a reason why the warranty can be void, such as:
- Custom recovery flashing
- Custom Operating Systems (e.g Cyanogen Mod (Or Custom ROMS))
- Modifying the boot screen
- Changing system files
One time I went to my phone store to have my android phone repaired, I said it was rooted, but they still got on with it.
Now take the iOS version of jailbreaking, all you can do is simply change boot screens, probally apply a theme, and thats about it. There are MANY more things but would take too long to type.
And if your iOS device has a problem (e.g wifi not working) Apple support will just be like 'Nope. Sorry can't do it, its jailbroken' and turn it down. Yet all they have to do is just DO A SYSTEM RESTORE. Not many people know how. Thats why if jailbreak is the cause they have to deal with it themselves.
So at the end of this, Why? Why does apple say no jailbroken devices when you cant change the software?
