    If I delete it in order to replace my iPod, would I be able to restore or would it be bricked?
    I'm asking because I read on another thread this is a sure way to get your iPod replaced and want to know if apple will restore it.

    There was one guy who tried it not too long ago. He deleted it, took it into Apple, and they restored it. Maybe you'll have better luck and get someone dumber at the store you go to.

    I did it and they couldnt restore it, they just gave me a straight swap but then i got my money back instead in the end

    Nope, trust me, you cant do anything with it, once you delete the folder and turn the ipod off there is no way to revive it

    if you connect it holding home it still wont do anything

    ohh..and if i delete it and then restore it without turning it off so they wouldn't have any evidence of it being jailbroken?

    ive done it once b4 and got a new 1. I tried again recently and i said that it happens a few days after i restore it. they said if it happens again then return and we will replace it then best thing to do is have ur laptop in ur car and JB it and delete sbin again take it back 30 minutes later and u wont have to make another genius appointment cos u were just there and they didnt solve ur problem

    they will never know its jailbroken cos its impossible to start without restoring it
    ------------------------------------
    this is wrong. deleting sbin can be restored in DFU mode... ive done it several times.
