    I'm sure you were terrified. Sounds like you're slightly traumatized from messing up your first device!
    I am! Haha

    You CANT hide all of the evidence of a jailbreak. Once jailbreaking, there's no going back. Your warranty is broken with apple
    DarkBeam doesn't know what he is talking about. If something ever goes wrong your warranty is restored with apple as soon as you restore with itunes.

    Lol true, themes is #1 sign of jb aside from Cydia. I'm sure you could untheme when he's around tho.

    As for warranty broken, it's true. You can't hide all traces bc they do have the ability to find out even after a restore. But it's highly unlikely they would bother to go thru the trouble of doing extensive research on the device. As long as it doesn't appear to be jb, it's fine.

    Here is how to convince him. Ask him if there is any other phone that he wants besides the iphone 4. Window phone 7 for example. Take your iphone and get the theme. Then tell him, "If only you were jailbroken"

    You needed your parents approval, stray? Must suck to be a kid.

    @ OP, if your dad doesn't want you jailbreaking, then it is best to respect his wishes, as he is the one paying for your expensive phone and cell plan. Trust is a easy thing to lose and a VERY hard thing to regain. It would be better to make him a list of why you should jailbreak and talk to him about it.

    Okay well your kind of right. It works the someway most computers do. If you delete something, it removes the reference saying that it is needed and can get overwritten at any time. This is why they could still see if it was jailbroken. However, if you deleted everything from the jailbreak, even cydia, and then through your computer rewrote over everything several times, it would be mostly fine. Then if you restore multiple times, each time putting songs on your device until it reaches the maximum capacity, it would basically be completely undetectable. But, as you said, a simple restore usually works as the don't check thoroughly as long as it looks normal.

    Its hidden with SBSettings Dock.
    I Use it when hes not around like at school and stuff

    I think I convinced him Jailbreaking is good at times. I fixed a iPhone weave been trying to fix for a month by jailbreaking it with GreenPois0n. I tried to Update to 4.3B3... Yeah.. Locked the phone... Well. If you JB it with GP you get a iPhone back to life.. Haha

    He didn't want me to jailbreak it because I tend to mess with devices. But I know not to screw with it majorly. Especially because my last iPhone I screwed up tryin to buy 4.3 beta on... Haha. But I learned my lesson. And just want freedom with my idevice
    Thats idiotic. Sounds like your dad is hitler.

    Jailbreaking can't screw up a device totally, 99% of the things are reverseable by a quick restore.

    I think its horrible parents control their kids like this...its very demeaning.

    Plus jailbreaking gives you more security and more of a chance your device will be returned if lost/stolen

    he wasn't referring to pirating, there ARE free apps in cydia ya know.. >.>
