    Hey guys. So jailbreaking voids your warranty, but what exactly does "voids" mean? Like if you were to send a jb ipod to apple, would they just send it back or would they send it back and completely cancel your warranty?

    Thanks!

    Makes your warrenty invalid. Meaning, you haven't got a warrenty at all.

    You can order more headphones, but you'll be charged.

    Running over your ipod with a tank !....Im Sure Apple wouldn't accept that for a replacement !
    Anyway getting to the point, I jailbroke my iphone 3gs and the battery life was terrible so I decided to restore it and bring it to the genus bar and they gave me a refurbished one like new for free....!

    Jailbreaking your iPod basically gets rid of your warranty if Apple finds out. But if you restore your iPod before sending it to apple, no one will be the wiser.
