    My friend went to an Apple store in Swansea or whatever, and he wanted to get a warranty. The owner checked out his iPod and he said he detected unidentified firmware/software changes. My friend had his touch jailbroken for 2 weeks and fully restored it before he headed to Apple. I'm thinking this isn't a good thing. I hope it was HIS personal error or else. The warranty couldn't be completed, I hope were not screwed.

    He probably said that to get your friend to admit to it, what a sucker, I would have denied all the way.

    Hm, it might just be the guy's error. If he restored it, he shouldn't have been able to detect it.

    yeah, he could have just done that to make him admit it...

    Your friend should have just lied...If you restore it, they can't detect it.

    He didn't have to admit it. The warranty was just denied with no further questions.

    lol, I don't think restoring it brings it back to a fully 'store bought' condition.

    I use SBsettings to change the carrier text at the top (original saying iPod) to iPhone, then I had issues and decided to restore and after the restore to original firmware it still said iPhone.. So I call it my iPod with an identity crisis.

    Then again it should.

    I think the guy at the store was just BS'n.. I'd totally play the kid too if he came in with an iPod at a later date after purchasing the iPod. Looks fishy.. People usually only seek those warranties when they KNOW something is going wrong.

    But that's just my theory/experience.

    I think he made the mistatke of carrier text or something lol

    and for that problem: carrier changer/makeitmine changes your ipod touch user settings and itunes backsit up so that is in a restore included also

    Under settings do Reset -> All content and settings. Takes a long time and your sure everything it gone. Then do restore or visa-versa
