    So rumours are up and about that Apple will include a digital watermark in iOS 4.1 to see whether or not you have ever jailbroken your device and it will stay between firmware restores. What do you think? I sure hope it's fake.

    I don't think so... Not that big of deal though, it won't be able to track past jailbreaks and there is almost no point to jailbreaking now imo. I don't even think iTunes knows if you're jailbroken or not but things have changed and I'm probably wrong.

    It's just a rumor.Theres no actual proof.They said the same thing when the 4.0 came out.Don't believe what everybody says.

    Void your warranty. Legal or not, their contract terms disallows jailbreaks. You know how most electronic devices say do not open or you'll void your warranty, its perfectly legal to open it since you own it, just don't expect them to fix it afterwards.

    Thankfully, evidence of jailbreaks are easy to hide.

    I think that apple can tell if your jailbroken. I have an app (I can't remember which one), I was looking through it's files and I found a file that when I looked in it said something like this: Jailbroken = true.
    I changed it to false. But when I looked again it said true.

    Seriously? I think you'd remember what app it was if it really happened.

    If it really happened and you don't, well, you're a jerk, we could really use this info.

    Yeah. Plz look around for that app, or consider hypnotherapy to have this remembered.

    I'm pretty sure a DFU restore would take it away because everything would be wiped, unless it was stored in iTunes, and in that case, just re-install.

    iTunes saves its critical data (backups and such) to C:\Documents and Settings\***username***\Application Data\Apple Computer

    This survives iTunes re-installations.

    I'm not gonna delete each file in here every time an app chucks the sh*ts because I'm jailbroken.

    No way.
