    My ipod touch is crap. and i want it replaced by applecare and the only way to do that seems to be to make the screen unresponsive. can you just hit it a couple times or something?


    edit: 8) "ApplePwn" (mclaurin10)

    Download WinPwn or Pwnage and when it reads "aspw", click on "Choose iPhone Firmware". Hit iPwner and then your iPod will be bricked. Once Apple figures your iPod cannot be restored, you will be guaranteed a new iPod. For a specific tutorial, check out mclaurin10's post here.

    i saw this posted on another thread i wanted to know if it really worked?

    If you drop the iPod touch, there's the possibility of the screen cracking.

    I have heard of many just going to an Apple Store and saying that their battery only lasts less than 10 minutes, screen has been flashing, etc and then they usually give them a new iPod on the spot.

    Just be sure to restore before taking it.

    really? thats pretty interesting. i may have to try that during thanksgiving when i am gonna be around an apple store lol. you'd have to be pretty quick on your feet though i guess.

    and for everyone else: there can't be any physical damage to it or they wont replace it. no "accidental" damage.
