    Apparently someone in other forums claimed that by jailbreaking, their warranty will not void as they'll restore back to factory settings/mode when something is wrong with their iTouch. I doubt it.

    Anyone can clear the midst in the air?

    well your warranty is voided as soon as you mod the firmware but by restoring you can erase evidence of that but lets say uve got a modded 1 and u brake it physically (not via mod gone bad) then ur screwed but if its a mod gone bad u should be qable to hard resotre

    Don't forget to have it connected with the USB cable and iTunes up and running when you do that. It will send it into recovery mode, and iTunes will help you through the rest.

    Yes, according to one of the apple employees at the Austin Barton Creek Store, I asked that "hypothetically" if I jailbroke my iPod, would it void my warranty? She the responded by saying "Yes, but if you have problems, you could just do a restore and no one would ever know, hypothetically speaking, of course"

    In the odd event where your iPod's connector is dead, and you cannot restore, then you're screwed
