Legal So, there I am enjoying a nice Gilmore Girls episode after a long day's work, and Engadget's iPhone application brings the good news: the US Library of Congress has added a DMCA exemption for jailbreaking or rooting mobile phones! This is a major blow to Apple, who actively tried to keep jailbreaking a criminal offence, and a major win for everyone who believes that the phone you buy is actually yours, and not the manufacturer's.

Yes, but then 'warranty laws' are pretty clear...

If the modification didn't cause the problem, the problem is still covered under warranty.

So, unless jail-breaking in and of itself caused the issue, the warranty must be honored.
