    So I had jailbroken my 2G touch about 6 months ago. But recently had a problem with the volume acting as the on/off switch and the on off button acting as the high volume. I was going to have an apple Genius take a look at it so I restored it an hour before taking it in. As the Genius was looking at it he said it was hacked! I was wondering how he knew, he then showed me the carrier name (top left on the ipod display) had changed to "upod" (In a silly moment I had change it to that when jailbroken). I'm wondering why the restore didn't change that back to it's original "ipod"?

    Anyway the genius was cool, and he still replaced it, evidently the problem I was having with the on/off button and volume rocker was a hardware problem.

    Anyone know why the restore didn't change the carrier name??

    Thanks

    Yeah he said, "its been hacked."

    Your right I did restore it from a backup, I didn't know there was evidence of a jailbroken device stored in itunes; now I know

    He seemed to know what was going on, I guess he was cool to replace it anyway since the problem I was having was unrelated?

    wow, you're lucky. i think he was just having a good day since they typically look for a reason not to replace it, even in a situation like this when it was obviously a hardware problem.

    What do you want? A cookie? Lots of people have sent back their PREVIOUSLY jailbroken or restored devices....
