    I restored my ipod touch, but I don't know if it is completely rid of the jailbroken traces. Can someone tell me if it is totally back to normal???

    Not quite true,

    When iTunes restores, it pushes some data ( Emails, Acoount Data, App Data etc. ) to a different partition that doesnt get restored. Some of this data could be jailbreaking crap.

    To make sure, restore your iPod Touch. If you don't think it's cleared, uninstall iTunes and remove any trace of it on your computer. Afterwards, reinstall iTunes from the Apple website. Set up your iPod Touch as a brand new iPod Touch on iTunes and restore. Afterwards, go on your iPod Touch go to Settings<General<Reset<Erase All Content and Settings and do. Takes about an hour, restore again just to be sure.

    Still, there is still going to always be a trace of jailbreaking.

    Apple doesn't take the effort to dig that far down into your iPod/iPhone though to check for a break on the warranty. So if you are planning on exchanging your device, a restore will be good enough.

    restore, then restore via dfu and no one will know. unless you used ziphone which i believe flashes a custom bootloader or something to your ipod.

    still, it takes a little bit of effort for Apple to find out about that.

    If he is simply taking advantage of his warranty, I doubt the employees that check out his iPod will know of anything.
