    if you use other methods than the ones recommended by Apple you can loose the warranty of Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad

    There are a few methods out there, but I wouldn't recommend any of them. The risk would be too high, in my opinion.

        Well, I actually meant turning your phone into a paperweight... Trying to restore with software other iTunes, there is a good chance of bricking the phone.

    You can restore to factory defaults via Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.

    You can upgrade the firmware without iTunes if you are running iOS 5 via Settings > General > Software Update.

    You can't restore or flash without iTunes if your iOS device is broken, in recovery or DFU mode.
