    Hey,
    I'm currently looking at getting a new backplate for my IpodTouch due to my current one is really scratched. If I open up the iPod and replace the backplate, do i instantly void my warranty? If not I when i send my iPod in for warranty ill have to use the original backplate as its got my serial number on it right?
    Thanks

    how does it void it? is there some kind of seal that gets broken or are people only presuming that it voids it like the jailbreak, which it obviously doesnt.

    I suppose if you can switch in a new backplate in such a way that nobody could tell you'd replaced the original one (can you buy just the backplate somewhere? I have no idea), assuming there's no seal or what not, then I guess it's technically void but practically undetectable.

    you will have to find one with the same serial number as the one on the software for it

    and that wont happen

    brake it and complain to apple and get a new 1

    Usually they just check through the headphone jack to see if the filter paper turned yellow (red? idk) so as long as there's no water damage I'm sure you'd be fine.
