Do not take a jailbroken phone to the apple store! They will blacklist your phone from future service support, so even if you do fix this now, you will never be able to take it back to apple.

If you _must_ take your phone in for support, do a full restore first to version 1.1.3, and do not jailbreak it.

    ...I should be more clear.

    A restored 1.1.3 phone will still appeared "jailbroken" to the apple store. There are additional steps you need to complete before taking the phone in. You can find software and instructions here: ziphone.org. Do not take your phone in until you have followed zibree's instructions. This involves unsyncing your iphone and system, and running ziphone with the "-D" option.

    Looks like we are in a pickle here. If you bring your phone in for support, apple will almost certainly blacklist your phone from current and future support - unless you get really lucky, and can smooth talk a manager. If you are going to speak with a manger, you should be very professional, and polite. Remember, they are under no obligation to help you since you willingly voided your warranty.

    Although I can't be certain that your battery is indeed dead, you can try this replacement service. You can have the company do the replacement, or do the replacement yourself using videos on youtube.

How do I get my phone to download online apps that are not from the apple store?


Hello.

You have to go through the process of jailbreaking your phone before doing this.

Jailbreaking is a quick procedure and it really supercharges your iPhone. The downside is that your warranty will be voided after jailbreaking the device. Here's an easy-to-follow guide to jailbreaking your device in case you are interested:

After jailbreaking, you'll have to follow this guide in order to install third-party apps.

How to jailbreak an IPhone/Ipod touch


What is iPhone Jailbreak?In short, Jailbreak is the process of hacking an iPhone to free it from Apple restrictions.
Because the iPhone is far from flawless as Apple created it, thousands of iPhone users have flocked to Jailbreak in search of iPhone changes and improvements. iPhone has been held back by limited customizability, text message privacy issues, and a lack of multitasking capabilities. But Jailbreak can solve all of these problems with apps and fixes available in Cydia and Installer.
Cydia and Installer are the unofficial "App Stores" of the Jailbreak world. Developers create apps and tweaks and different utilities and upload them to these package managers, which organize everything into categories. The differences between Cydia and the App Store are the lack of an app approval process, and the lack of access limits on the iPhone software - i.e. you can do things Apple did not design the iPhone software to do.
Why Jailbreak iPhone?
  1. No restrictions. Want a custom wallpaper on your home screen? Custom icons for your apps? Internet tethering? A category system for organizing your apps? The ability to hide native iPhone apps you don't use? You can do all of this and more with Jailbreak, as iSmashPhone describes in ten reasons to Jailbreak your iPhone. As one of my readers recently noted, Jailbreak can make all your iPhone wishes come true.
  2. To join the subculture. Sick of Apple's stranglehold on the iPhone? Those who Jailbreak iPhone belong to a movement of people who demand more from their iPhones. And they're not gonna let Apple stop them. Beat the system: Jailbreak your iPhone.
  3. Unlock iPhone. To unlock your iPhone and use it on any carrier, you must first Jailbreak your iPhone. Some of the Jailbreak solutions below also allow you to unlock the iPhone, though unlocking is generally beyond the scope of this tutorial.
Why NOT Jailbreak iPhone?
  1. The folks at Apple know what they are doing. They have not enabled multasking - the ability for apps to run in the background, simultaneously - most likely because it is a huge battery drain. By controlling the user experience, Apple ensures that your iPhone "just works," and you don't have to worry about managing battery life or any other technical details.
  2. Jailbreak could (maybe?) brick your iPhone. "When someone develops something for an Apple product and that development isn’t sanctioned by Apple, you run the risk of it not working as it should, conflicting with the device itself, or just all-around bricking that iPhone," warns Chris Pirillo, who prefers not to Jailbreak his iPhone because "my iPhone just works already." But I have never heard of Jailbreak completely ruining an iPhone. The consensus at this forum seems to be that the chance is "extremely slim."
  3. Every iPhone update from iTunes disables Jailbreak. Every time Apple comes out with an update for iPhone, they find a way to prevent hackers from cracking the code again. Hackers then scramble to Jailbreak the iPhone again and release the new methods. That means if you like to download Apple's iPhone updates, you are going to have to figure out each time how to Jailbreak your iPhone yes again. Do you really want to play this cat and mouse game?
  4. Jailbreak might increase your risk of getting a virus on your iPhone. The only two iPhone viruses ever reported have spread across iPhones that have been Jailbroken. That's not to say the iPhone platform as Apple built it is totally secure. In fact, some say compromising an iPhone's security is "child's play" (i.e. easy).
  5. Jailbreak voids your iPhone warranty. If your iPhone is bricked because of Jailbreak, or if your iPhone has another problem and it happens to be Jailbreaked, your warranty becomes void. I once saw a sign at the Genius bar of The Falls, Miami Apple Store that warned customers not to Jailbreak iPhones or they would void their warranties. Harsh.

On your iphone go to www.jailbreakme.com and have fun!
