    Old news to me, but won't be to the new jailbreakers out there.

    Agreed. I am not exactly a jailbreaking noob, and when I read that I was all "WTF?". It could definitely use a little rewording. Other than that, it a very concise and to the point article that I can point jailbreak id10Ts to.

    "By restoring your device back to factory default settings using iTunes, however, all traces of jailbreaking will be removed and your warranty will essentially be valid again."


    I wonder how long before Apple tracks your iDevice, and keeps records on your iPod, and if you jailbreak, they'll record that and use that against you when you need to use warranty. That'd be bad.

    Ah I get what you mean now, I put "no" regarding any risks. Reworded that final question.

    Apart from the risk that you'll get more out of your device, no.
