    I know jailbreaking CAN void the warranty...and since I have never jailbroken a device before, I was wondering how does it void the warranty?

    or do I just restore to regular iOS if i need to go in for hardware issues...

    Just restore before going to Apple and you should be fine.

    I've been at the Genius Bar next to someone who brought in a jailbroken iPod Touch and the tech support guy asked him if it was, he said yes, and just gave him another iPod Touch. So take your chances.

    Look at it this way...

    ---If you take a Jailbroken Phone to the store, they won't fix it.

    ---If you take an unjailbroken phone to the store, they will fix it.

    If you JB'd your phone and it goes screwy, do a RESTORE to the official Apple iOS version (a basic 5.0.1 or whatever iOS version you were on) and you got your warranty back and you'll be able to get Apple to fix it for you.

    Don't expect them to fix your phone if they see Cydia or any other JB apps on it though.
