Hello people, I want to use some apps in Cydia Store just like SBSettings and WinterBoard on my iPhone 4. However, I don’t want to jailbreak my iPhone due to warranty issues. I am using a brand new iPhone and it’s currently running on iOS 4.3.5 firmware. Thanks.

Well, you don’t have to be worry about jailbreaking as this hacking process has been proven safe. And as long as you follow the instructions very carefully, the chances of bricking your iPhone are very little. Most errors that you may encounter during and after jailbreaking can also be fixed easily using special tools that were created by the developer of most jailbreak tools.
Yes, jailbreaking will void the warranty of your iPhone. But that is if you take your iPhone to Apple or AT&T with a jailbroken firmware. Fortunately, jailbreaking and unlocking using software is completely reversible. So, if your iOS device is jailbroken and you need a warranty fix then you must restore your iPhone to iTunes in order to wipe out the modification and the software used to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone. And there’s no way Apple will be able to determine if the device was jailbroken or not.
So, if you want to jailbreak in order to install all jailbreak apps and tweaks of your choice from Cydia, then all you need to do is follow this guide to jailbreak iOS 4.3.5 on iPhone 4 using Redsn0w 0.9.8b7.
