    Ok so I recently dropped my iTouch and broke the LCD screen on the inside, but it is jailbroken which I am pretty sure voids the warranty. If I wipe my ipod clean and get the original firmware on there, will Apple be able to tell I ever jailbroke it? And are there any tutorials on who to reverse jailbreak an iTouch?

    Better yet, see if you can put it in DFU mode and do a DFU restore, because I have heard that apple has ways of telling if you were jailbroken if you do a regular restore. If you can't do a DFU restore you will most likely be fine since I doubt they will check to see if it was jailbroken for a broken screen.

    Also does the limited-warranty cover the lcd screen breaking?

    As far as I know it doesn't if you have dropped it, so unless you don't tell them it was dropped it won't be fixed under waranty. You may have to pay for it to be fixed, but I guess if your screen is not cracked and there isn't any visible physical damage you could say it just "stoped working" and see if they replace it for you.
