    Hey guys,
    Recently I called apple thinking i bricked my ipod with pwnage, it wasnt I entered DFU mode and everything turned out okay but I just got an email from apple saying that since I had asked for service earlier and that my ipod was fine if there was no error this time they could charge me $100 bucks.

    So I need to brick my ipod, fast I dont want to pay them 100 and I really need help!.


    and I quote, the email they sent me.

    "Apple may charge you a diagnostic fee, including shipping charges, of no more than one hundred ($100) dollars US, plus applicable tax, if Apple inspects your product and determines based on the inspection that the product does not require service. If Apple determines, while inspecting your product, that service is needed due to the failure of parts that are neither supplied by Apple nor Apple-branded, Apple may return the product to you without servicing it, and may charge you the diagnostic fee plus applicable sales tax.

    You are entitled to a written estimate of the cost of repairs. The estimate must include all costs for parts and labor. Apple will not charge for work done or parts supplied in excess of the estimate unless you, the customer, approve the additional charge. This estimate of repair charges is valid for 30 days from the date of estimate. You must notify Apple if you claim a tax exemption and provide Apple with a tax exemption number at the time you receive this estimate. The cost of shipping is included in the estimate. "

    should get some interesting responses.

    I WOULD PREFER TO NOT HAVE TO JB, im fine with PWNING, but I really dont want evidence of installer anywere on there.

    secondly I dont see any way that PWNAGE bricked peoples iPods, I mean honestly Ive unplugged during the iPwner process twice! No brick, just the backup OS
