    Up to you.
    Most likely they will just replace the screen and not check much.
    What I did when my speaker died was removed most my hacks and just hid the cydia icon inside a folder.
    They didn't bother checking much since it was clearly a hardware issue. They replaced the speaker and I just went home after and installed back all my JB stuff. :)

    so remove the theme and put all jb hack icons in a folder on the last page?

    would the cydia impactor help in this situation?

    I ended up removing the cydia hacks that are displayed in the settings section in case they scroll down and see things listed there like iGotya, ccsettings, no appstoreredirect and other JB hacks.
    If you have just package icons on the homescreen you could stick them inside a folder.
    I don't think impactor is ready yet for ios 9 and I wouldn't go that far since its not a software issue you are having and you are paying for the applecare Plus incident anyway.

    Correct.
    And don't be nervous :D lol
    Most Apple tech's are cool with JB anyway. There's always a few that work there that hate anything that alters the Apple system but its definitely not something that they can deny you service for or even inspect the software much since its obviously a physical damage case.

    copy that. i can always play the dumb card if they ask, tell them my son plays with my phone blah blah...not worried now since i removed all the tweaks. i should bend the phone some, and then they will just give me a new one!

    but wont be able to jb tho if that happens.

    You might get stuck with a 9.1 replacement.
    If everything works fine on it currently and its just the shattered screen I'd leave it as is. I don't think you'll have a problem.

    At the very least remove everything and hide cydia in a folder page 3

    Bad luck man:(
    If it was anything below or above that version you got you'd be fine.
    Now you can only update to 9.1 and wait for the next JB.

    They wouldn't just replace the screen instead of swapping out the phone?

    guess there as a dent on the back, and the shattered screen was more than that, messed up the display.
