    Default Warranty work: should I remove the Hard Drive?
    I'm sending my MacBook off to get the hinge fixed. The apple store said that while they have it they will run diagnostics on the hardware like the HD, battery, ram, etc. Should I remove my hard drive so that all jailbreaking info is gone? I've got tons of tools, ispw files, custom carrier bundles, you name it. I'd rather not let them see that stuff.

    So what's your thoughts? Thanks.

    If it were me I wouldn't worry about it. The repair tech will just run his standard checkup program. He would get in to all kinds of trouble if he did any other snooping on your system. That kind of bad publicity wouldn't be worth it to Apple.

    jailbreaking voids the iphone/ipod/ipad warranty, it does nothing to the computer you used to perform the jailbreak, you'll be fine.

    You're fine. It only voids the iDevices' warranty.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    Thanks for the replies. Sorry I didn't get back here sooner, I've been sick.

    I never thought about the liability that Apple would open themselves up to if they accessed your info.
