    Alright -
    I was in Chicago over the long vacation on break. I was walking down downtown, headphones in ear and Jailbroken Touch in my pocket. As I hear a song that I don't like, I go down to fast forward. Done. Through instinct, I press the sleep/wake button on top of the device for the screen to black out.
    But it did not happen. I tried repeatedly. Nothing. I waited an hour, two hours, before telling
    my dad. We head to the Apple store.

    I was nervous. I knew that if they saw all these weird third party apps on the device they would void my warranty, if not take my beloved iPod away.

    My turn at the helpdesk was in 5 minuites. "think!" I said to myself. I could try and restore it, but my sleep button won't work! What to do...what to do!

    Finally an idea came to mind. I quickly tapped my way to the Customize app, an application that I wasn't very familiar with. "Please have this function!"

    And there it was. "Hide applications".
    I tapped it. I hid every single 3rd party app and hid it, set the summerboard theme to default, and was set to go.

    I handed it over to the guy, and he inspected it.
    "It seems to be in good condition, we can replace it under warranty".
    He handed a brand new iPod touch over to me.

    Sweet!

    Funnily enough, I had forgotten to hide the mail, maps, and otheriPhone apps. I was running 1.1.1.

    And, my new iPod got the paid apps FOR FREE.

    That guy was an idiot not to go to Settings > About, which would have taken him like 2 seconds and busted you.
