It cost me 25 or 30 (can't remember which) to have it done in store by Apple. If you do it yourself you invalidate the warranty, though I'm not sure how they can tell that. Anyway as there's no difference in price and they do it on the spot I'd suggest going in store.

I've been told £130 as an estimate on the telephone to Apple, was yours still in warranty Birdman?

The warranty lasts a year yeah? I'm pretty sure mine was outside of a year. It's probably worth booking an appointment, turning up then saying you were told it's £30. If they tell you it's out of warranty then I would just complain that a £100 price hike due to it being out of warranty is outrageous (which it is) and I reckon they'll wave the excess. The 'Geniuses' can wave most costs at their discretion and generally prefer the path of least resistance as it's literally a 2 minute job to fix and they do it right in front of you.

Nah, well you can; but tethered - so when you shutdown/restart you have to connect to pc to boot again.

Am I right in saying that there's no untethered for 6.0.1 yet? Tried searching for info on it, but it's a minefield.
