    I am trying to get an ipod touch to seem as if it has internal hardware failure so it will be replaced by bestbuy's warranty.I know I could simply mess with it during a restore/JB and that would put it in a pretty messed up state. I was trying to put it into DFU mode instead, but whenever I put it in DFU mode, it simply exits dfu mode after 1 restart. Any suggestions?

    This is considered fraud and the site does not support fraud so go somewhere else and ask.

    So if I brick it and try to get an exchange, that is fraud?

    Yes, if you do something on purpose to have it replaced or take advantage of the warranty, it is fraud.

    They're not going to give you a 2G if that's what you're thinking. And wtf is with all the warranty fraud threads lately?

    Some people enjoy having the very latest and best of what they already have. This includes trying to break a product that works perfectly fine because it isn't "new enough". In my opinion, this is morally incorrect, and you deserve to get in in DFU mode and keep it in DFU mode, but also need to keep the product itself.

    My suggestion? Run over your iPod with your car a few dozen times, and see if they'll exchange it when it's obvious you were trying to rip them off.

    Beyond that, short of killing the hardware, it's almost impossible to 'freeze' your iPod permanently, since it was designed to NOT let you do that.

    Apple would have been really stupid , if they let you put the ipod touch in a useless state and not be able to bring it back to life.
