    I recently read an interesting (and funny) post and I started to wonder. If you would JailBreak your iPod (or iPhone), and not add any mods and move cydia (or hide it), is there still a tell for Apple, would they know its JB? If so... how?

    Would they know by glancing at it? Probably not.

    Would they know if they used it for a few seconds or more? Yes.

    Would they deny any warranty claims if you need the iPod to be serviced? Yes.

    They wouldnt notice, because there would be no evidence. Cydia is hidden.

    I still am not sure... Apple is pretty tricky, they probably have little sensors that ring an alarm if they detect traitors

    Apple can figure out that your iPhone/iPod is jailbroken. When you're iPhone/iPod is jailbroken, it allows open access to the files. It also deletes/edits a couple of these files. Apple can find out by searching for these deleted/edited files... But at a glance, it is impossible to tell if it were jailbroken.

    If they really wanted to, they could scan for the jailbreak exploits and see if they were well... exploited.

    That would tell them youre jailbroken.
    But upon a regular inspection, no they wouldnt, as long as you hide any jailbreak tell-tale signs.

    Er, Apple Genii, while not always living up to their "Genius" title, are not idiots.
