    My iPod touch has a problem with the sound. I want to take it to the apple store but it's jailbroken. If I restore it, will apple know that I have jailbroken it? My friend says yes and I've read somewhere that says no so I'm confused.

    Make sure you click 'Set up as new iPod' once restored.

    If you do not do that (^), then they will be able to tell. So do make sure to set up as a new iPod. Apple records the serial number of the iPod, so if they see it is jailbroken once, you probably won't ever get it replaced by them.

    Restoring a week or so before you go to Apple helps. That way you can explain that you tried to fix it by restoring, but it didn't work so that's why you're there to get it replaced. Apple can see when the last time is that you restored your iPod.
