    I have hacked my touch but now the battery only lasts an hour and it has a lot of dead pixels, I want to return it.

    Can I do this if I restore it?

    Did you use the services application to turn off wifi and SSH? SSH is killer on battery life. I wouldn't go returning it just yet.

    You can restore it, but I've heard from several friends that most retailers are only going to accept them for warranty repair/replacement, not full refund...

    Did you read my post? You probably don't need a replacement at all. Try what I told you and see if the battery life is still crap, if it is, then you have a defective battery and you need to restore it and take it back.

    No, he didn't read your post. It's an important post pertaining to his situation. He also didn't read all the threads on battery life and SSH.

    Of course we've got a simultaneous thread started about the very same problem. He didn't search either.

    This is not the only problem there are about fifty dead pixels

    Would have been nice if you could have mentioned this earlier. Definitely restore via iTunes and take it back to the store for another one.
