    this is probably a stupid question, but i have a geek squad black tie protection plan on my 2nd gen touch and they told me i would void my warranty if i jailbreak my touch (not surprising). My questions are:
    1) if i were to somehow brick my ipod jailbreaking it, would best buy/ apple be able to tell (or is there a way to fix that) ?
    2) if my ipod has a factory problem and just wont turn on (this has happened to previous ipods of mine, they just didnt turn on one day), would apple/ best buy know if i jailbroke it? Like would they go look at the internal files?
    thanks

    Yes they would be able to tell, but a simple restore and they wont (or so its been said)

    In both of those circumstances you would be screwed. They can definitely tell.

    1 its impossible to completely brick your ipod.( a simple dfu restore will save you there.) and from what i here they dont really check your ipod to see if its been jailbroken.

    2 i dont think so. (if theat ever happens try botting to dfu and restore.)

    no they can't... This guy doesn't know what he's talking about... Believe me. A restore overwrites everything on the iPod and it's impossible for them to tell. I used to have this worry but I read up at this site and I saw the light.
