    Jailbreaking voids your warranty. But apple havn't ever said that Pwning voids your warranty?
    I'm not sure if this is thread worthy, as Pwning does auto-install the Installer.app on your touch (Which is pretty much the main sign of Jailbreak) but since my iPod is Pwned (bricked) and not jailbroken, Theoretically, could i take it to the apple store, tell them the whole (true) story, and they are still obliged to help me/give me a new one?
    Of course, this probably isn't true, but it's just a thought.

    this would be worse that jailbreaking technically, because it exposes the boot loader and gives root access, I am positive that this voids your warranty, I am just not as certain that simply restoring will get rid of all evidence...

    I bet your warranty is voided, but i bet you that they wont know that your iPod is pwned... unless they can check the boot loader to see if was modified...

    I would try to take it to the Apple store...

    Isn't it voided if you install 3rd party applications? In this case, yes?

    And also, make sure it's not engraved

    Isn't the warranty voided the second you mofidy the original firmware? So that would mean pwning, jailbreaking, unlocking etc "technically" voids the warranty. I say technically because everything can be reverted and Apple will be none the wiser.
