    Hey everyone.
    I have a little problem, and I'd like some advice.

    Alright, first I'll start off with this, I'm pretty financially in-trouble right now. Keep that in mind for a minute.

    So anyways.
    Up until today, my iPod has worked fine.
    My charger's always worked, it's always turned on, etc etc etc.
    Today I grabbed my iPod (presuming it would work still) only to find that it wouldn't turn on at all.
    I thought to myself 'alright, it's dead. Charge it'. So I plug the charger in.
    The computer doesn't recognize the ipod whatsoever.
    I tried the DFU mode, still didn't recognize. So here's what I concluded:

    1 - The iPod's broken
    2 - The charger's broken.
    (Note: My charger does seem to have a wire tear, it just doesn't look like it's all that bad to me)

    I don't have an extra 20$ laying around for iPod stuff, so I thought about sending it into apple.
    My iPod is jailbroken, but when you send it in they erase data so if I told them I haven't jailbroken it, would they still fix it? If it's not able to be turned on, how the hell would they know?
    Also, if they did find out it's Jailbroken, would they not give it back to me?
    Thanks guys.

    if they found it jailbroken all they would do is reject it and send it back. if they keep it you can complain to them

    Alright, cool.
    Now here's another question:
    Let's say they send it back because they found it Jailbroken.
    If I ever had a problem again and sent it in after doing a DFU restore, would they keep on record I've jailbroken it and just send it back again?

    ok

    first off jailbreaking voids your warranty so it would not be free..your cable may not be broken/ripped/torn this happened to me and it wouldnt even charge,dont worry this does not necessarily mean your usb port is broken just corrupted in some way but other devices will still work, if windows does not recognize it try a different usb port or even better a different pc, if none of these work then try different cable (borrow someones) and if that does not work than i am sorry but you are screwed yoou will have to pay to get it fixed

    I understand it voids my warranty. That's why I'm asking this question.
    If the iPod can't turn on whatsoever, how in the hell would Apple know if it's Jailbroken or not? You can't look into a broken ipod's files, so they'd HAVE to restore it, leaving no evidence of my Jailbreak anyways?

    they can run a possible force boot on it, then do a system analysis, and a scan. once they find jailbreak.log. ur screwed.

    or you could be like me and tear it open and take the logic board out and put a different one in and then send it. then you have an ipod that can't be turned on, and it has a new hard drive, so no jb detection
