    If you jailbreak your ipod, and the screen cracks or something, and if someone finds out that its been hacked, do you not get your money back?

    the warranty doesn't cover damage. unless you can prove that a manufacturing defect caused the screen to crack or something, you're sh*t out of luck. Although in that off chance, just restore the iPod to factory conditions, if you can.

    Unless you purchased an extended warranty plan that covers damages you are screwed. The warranty that comes with the ipod does not cover screen leaking or screen damage or any sort of damage like that. If it is just a software issue like a jailbreak gone wrong or something you can get it exchanged but you got to keep your mouth shut. Just say it randomly screwed up or something. I totaled a mini with ipod Linux and they fixed it. I had not purchased any extra warranties. Hope this helps

    the AppleCare warranty doesn't protect against damages. this is the only extended warranty for apple products that i know of, and it's exactly like the standard iPod 1-year warranty, expcept it adds 2 more years of support.

    Well, if the flash memory dies or something else inside the hardware of the unit dies as to make the thing totally inoperable there would be no way for them to boot it up and figure out it's been jailbroken anyhow.

    If it something like a dead pixel problem or some other thing where the unit still boots up. Just do a restore from iTunes and it's like you just opened the box.

    I've heard tales of putting electronic devices in the microwave for a seconds (pwns circuits) or removing the cable while it is updating which theoretically should brick your iPod and being able to cash in on warranties.
