    If you clicked that, you could test to see if it removes traces of a jb. But if it doesn't, then just restore the device and send it back

    I'm assuming that if you're restoring to a newer firmware, then all traces of the jailbreak will be gone. Restoring from a backup will leave off some traces that you did jailbreak. e.g. numeric battery from SBsettings and some internal files that were part of the jailbreak.

    Don't use custom firmware, there are chances that it can mess up your iPod. The iPod won't restore since I have in mind that the iTunes version you're using may not allow you to do so.

    Alright, screw it, I feel it's worth erasing all your data since your backups should be of 4.0 and not 313.

    my ipod will not turn on its stuck in recovery, possibly bricked, what i wanted to know is if i pressed the erase all content button on a JAILBROKEN ipod would it have erased any traces of a jailbreak, i dont care about getting it running right now cause i want to know if it's safe to send back.
