    I got a big problem
    My ipod felt from the table with the cable in it so now the ipod won't charge nor connect to my computer. I tried with some else's cable and it doesn't work.
    It is still under warranty but i jailbroke my ipod
    Do i need to clear it? or they wont check if its jailbroken?
    If they do check, i need to find a way to clear all traces of the jailbreak to be sure i'll get a replacement

    Any ideas?

    Yea.. you're gonna need to restore it. But I don't know how if it doesn't connect.. Also, even if you're under warranty, they won't replace it since it fell off the table.

    second is there any signs of physical damage?

    well if you cant connect it to a computer you can not restore...
    what i would do is put it into dfu mode and bring it in while its in dfu mode then they wont be able to check... dont tell them you dropped it or they wont replace it make up a story like it suddenly stopped charging

    DFU mode is a good idea
    aside of this, i can access the ipod by wifi.
    Should i erase everything linked to jailbreak or the DFU mode will avoid it to be seen by apple's staff?

    dfu mode will be the best option because they wont be able to access the ipod without restore
