    I have a jailbroken ipod touch 2.2
    I have problems with the screen flickering, and the dock connector on the bottom is not working, so i cant charge it :(
    If i unjailbreak and restore, is there a way for the apple store to tell if it was previously jailbroken???? cuz i think it voids the warranty

    PLEASE HELP!
    thanks

    Yes. They will absolutely know UNLESS you restore.

    I think there is a way but they have to really be looking for that, most of the time they wont bother if it's restored. bottom line: you should be ok as long as you restore it.

    If they do, they will :)

    I still see BestBuy's around my house having some 32GB and 16GB ones of the 1st Gen. touch

    Ones like yours (broken ones that are returned) get shipped back, fixed, have a new case put on them, and then are given out again as replacements.

    Apple Stores can replace iPod models going back several years. Not always the specific color, but something of the same generation and size.

    SpeAking of 1g touch's, I feel really bad cause a kid at my school got a touch for Xmas but it is the 1g one! I am unsure of how that could have happened. Do u guys think i should tell him or just let him be happy with his 1g touch? He has Already put a screen protector on it. What do you guys think?

    Why should it be your problem? He got it as a gift; leave it be.

    He's a friend of mine. I mean I'm sure his parents paid the same amount of more than I spent for my 2g touch

    Once again, why is it your problem? If said friend is happy with his own gift, leave it be. There's no need to deal with returns and offend the gift givers... Aside from that, they probably paid less.

    But how much does it really matter? Over half of the employees at my local apple store have their iPhone and/or iPod Touch jailbroken.
