    well my 1g 8gb ipod touch's home button wont work and i scheduled a genius bar appointment for tomorrow. i downloaded the 2.0 update for free when seeing it on youtube. i thought it would void warranty so i restored it and it put 2.2 on. will they still find out i got it free, or since i reset it will they not.

    and do you think they will give me a new ipod? or can they normally fix a broken home button (i already tried the pressing hold and home button repeatedly, and no i didnt drop it or abuse it on purpose)

    If you restored it, there shouldn't be a problem. Chances are you will come home with a refurb 1st gen.

    yeah even if you didn't restore it, it wouldn't be obvious it wasn't a legit 2.0, anyway since it doesn't work you are either going to get a refurbed new one, or a tough luck go home... either one.
