    I have a jailbroken ipod touch 2g that I'm going to take to the apple store soon because the headphone jack is loose and I need to get rid of all jailbreak evidence! I was at 3.0 jb and then I decided to upgrade to 3.1.2 right away. So now I'm all official again... except for the battery percentage at the top right... Do you think the guys at apple store would notice it? It's cuz I don't want my warrenty to be voided =/

    Jailbreak it again, install sbs settings and disable it, then restore.

    No, simply Restoring it won't do the job.

    You need to do a DFU Restore. Look up how to do so.
    It's a complete wipe of the system.

    Clicking 'Restore' in iTunes isn't going to erase all the evidence.

    Go into Settings and reset the settings. Problem solved.


    EDIT: To adress the poster above me, DFU restoring won't do a thing. The reason the battery percentage is on the device after unjailbreaking is because the option to turn it on is a setting. Settings are backed up by iTunes. When the poster restores via DFU, he will most likely restore his settings from a back up, replacing the settings and recreating the problem.


    also, this forum is far too restore happy. Restoring should be a last ditch effort. Often times I see people advising or performing restores when they are completely unnecessary. DFU mode restores are even less necessary than standard restores.

    It's a shame really.
