    My ipod is only a couple of months old and it's my pride and joy, my 32gb baby

    Anyway, so I jailbroke it like 3 days ago and guess what, last night I dropped it and cracked the screen!
    So, please, my question to you is, is it possible to remove all signs of jailbreak and if so how??
    Thanks so much in advance.

    Do a DFU Restore.
    >Plug it in to your Computer
    >Hold down the Home and Power buttons AT THE SAME TIME for TEN SECONDS
    >Let go of the Power, but HOLD ON TO THE HOME BUTTON FOR TEN MORE SECONDS
    >Restore w/ the official firmware!

    1- Is it still working, can you use the basic buttons?
    if 1 = yes, restore it as DFU like he said.

    EDIT: if you can't use it. make sure it is really dead. and try to go where you bought it.

    You wont get a cracked screen fixed under warranty anyway.

    Your warranty doesn't cover accidental damage. You need to think of an excuse about how the screen broke its self.

    Depends is there any signs of impact on it? If not you could say that your iPod screen just exploded on your desk with what looked like a gas build up.

    Ahhh, I dunno, it's a bit obvious it's been dropped but what have I got to lose, you never know. It's not that bad but a cracked screen is a cracked screen innit
