    It looks super simple to replace.

    If you get it replaced at an Apple store then you will Lose your jailbreak because you'll have to get rid of it prior to getting your phone serviced.

    You can always uninstall everything and make it look as stock as possible. They won't and shouldn't restore for you without your consent

    That's what I did when I had to have my speaker replaced.
    I tried to hide my JB and they didn't notice and just swapped out the faulty part.

    How does one "hide" a jb? I brought my old 4s in for repair and they said they couldn't because it was jailbroken according to the Settings app.

    Uninstall mobile substrate and hide cydia somewhere (inside a folder, last page, etc). Uninstall the more well known jailbreak apps that aren't based on mobile substrate (ifile, terminal, etc)

    It was probably the tweak's preferences that showed up in settings app that gave it away

    You could always run ilex rat, erase everything but keep the jailbreak. Then like someone already suggested, bury Cydia in a folder in the very end. Just don't have important apps like settings inside the folder so the genius won't have any reason to go looking in there.

    Yes, pretty much what the others said.
    Just leave cydia and remove every other JB item.
    Stick cydia inside a folder on the 3rd of 4th page away that they wont go in and look every single app inside every folder.
    They will most likely just go into settings to get your serial number for warranty purposes.

    The only thing is if they are nitpickers, they could update your OS to iOS7 before handing it back.

    I doubt they would do that without asking you first.
    And as we know sometimes updates don't go through well so if you don't have a recent backup saved you could be screwed.
    And also most Apple stores are always packed, they don't have time to waste on updating your firmware for hardware repairs.

    If you're thinking this will improve your battery life, you are probably incorrect.

    general -> about doesn't reveal anything about jailbreaking (as far as I'm aware of). Unless they had assumed you were jailbroken based on your iOS version

    If it was a 3GS, then it might have been because the modem firmware (baseband) was 6.15.00

    Exactly.
    But once you scroll down the settings app and you start seeing things like activator,fakeclockup,iconlock, pull to refresh safari and many other JB hacks listed there its a dead giveaway.
    Nothing is listed on the about section about the device being JB or not.
