    I am not sure of the circumstances...

    BUT, if I were in your shoes I would've just called apple to explain about the lost box and they would've told ya what do!

    And about the Jail Breaking, well... I am not sure about that part, but if they power it on one way or another during Troubleshooting the problem you'd be in the mercy of the Genius working on it whether he decides to ignore the fact and go on and fix it or just send it right back to ya!

    I doubt they'll keep it... they aren't thieves after all. But Sending it back with a note saying Tough Luck is just as bad don't u think!

    Jailbreaking your iPod will render your warranty null and void.
    It will be sent back in the same state you sent it to them.

    Even if you hadn't Jailbroken it, all you would have had to do was call them and explain what happened. There was no need to falsify a serial number to get a new box sent to you.

    Trust me, they have ways of powering it on and also finding out if it's been jailbroken.
