    hi guys,

    i wasnt quite sure where to put this so let me know if it wrong. anyway i have a jailbroken iphone 3gs and the silent/vibrate switch has become very sensitive, to the point where the slightst touch of the button when its on silent wil make it vibrate and switch from on silent to off silent. the phone is still under warrenty so im going to se if they will replace the switch or handset. becouse the mobile is jailbroken is there anything i should do before talking it back to the store? how can i keep all my themes and apps?

    cheerss

    there is an app in cydia that will create a backup of the cydia items (i believe it's call pkgbackup or something close to that) as for everything else sync with itunes. you will need to restore to official firmware in itunes to remove the jailbreak before taking it in to be worked on, if you require an unlock i would advise you to replace the switch yourself or find someone who can because they will most likely update when they fix it or if they replace it the new phone will almost surely have the newest firmware which isn't unlockable at this time

    ifixt it and iphone repiar are fairly informative but im not sure about doing it myself unles its very easy haha i still have two months warrenty left, no one seems to know what causes the problem and i use the vibrate function very often for work so i think if apple wil do it its the best bet. if my iphone was replaced would i never be able to jailbreak again? or could it be possible? i thunk everythings backed up now so thats ok

    Anything is possible, but nothing can be guaranteed. This is a typical response needed because Apple continually tries to block jb's and unlocks. Maybe one day they will succeed.

    History has shown our excellent Dev-Team(s) members can usually find a way -- it's just a matter of time.

    How patient are you?

    I don't think so .... BUT if they find out it voids your warranty.

    BTW: Better take it back to Apple. You don't take the back off to look ... the screen is tweaked/pry'd/pulled very very carefully from the front.
