i have always wondered this and this was what made me weary of jailbreaking (but i succumbed to the temptation). (and before you lecture me about the search button i have searched but the answers ranged from a slanging match between 2 people to random hypothesises). My question is that if you're ipod's battery were to die (not run out of battery, actually physically not be able to hold charge and DIE) would i be able to restore. I could obviously not be able to take it back to the apple store because it is jailbroken and i do not want to crack open my ipod and risk messing things up. What would be my options?
