    I want to take my iTouch to apple to get a new one just for the hell of it, a new fresh ipod, no scratches, nothing. But i've jailbroken it ever since I got it soo, if I take it to apple and say i have really little battery life just to get it switched, will they detect that i've hacked it before?

    Restoring removes all sign of a jailbreak, but you should know you're going to be committing consumer fraud.

    Of course, there is ALWAYS a way to trace jailbreaking, when you restore your ISPW, it doesn't completely remove every piece of data from your iPod. Plus, deleted data can always be traced unless overwritten by a larger or equal size piece of data.

    ...But Apple will not investigate that deeply into your iPod. First of all, it would take way too long to prove that your device was jailbroken, and second of all, they don't have the time to do that with every iPod.

    So after a restore, you are safe.
