    Yes, restoring will get rid of all traces of jailbreaking. Please search next time though.

    Actually, it will not entirely. But Apple employees just plug it into the computer, run diagnostics, and give you a new iPod. They never search the filesystem for the modified files. If you've restored, your iPod is as good as new.

    So basically if you restored from a jailbreak, even if not all trace is erased, apple won't be able to find anything?

    they won't be looking for anything so they won't find anything lol. They just do a system check and thats it.

    Just make sure that everything is restored before you send it in. If they found out that you've jailbroken, then they might keep a note on that, and they might not ever fix your ipod again. Then you'll be relying on 3rd party reapirers, which can be risky....

    All you need to do is plug your iPod in and then restore. When iTunes prompts you, DO NOT click "Restore from backup." You should click "Set up as new iPod." Also, restore your iPod a week or so before taking it to Apple. It'll make your story more believable.

    Okay I know that everyone says if you just do restore new or whatever the traces will not be found. But has anyone actually done this and then sent their iPod/iPhone in for repair or whatnot? I REALLY want to jailbreak my iPhone so I can have multitasking and such in iOS 4; I bought an extended warranty from Apple, so I'm afraid that if I jailbreak it and my iPhone mysteriously "breaks" (it'll be right after the fact, of course) then they'll still see the trace of jailbreaking. :/
