That directory is located in the System folder, and as such, is unavailable to you…

So, let's say that if the system folder is unavailable, then the iPhone is not jailbroken, on the contrary if the iphone is Jailbroken then I will get access to /private/etc/fstab. Is it right?
I've just checked 2 iPhone extraction (advanced logical) of the same device one was performed with backup cryptography and one without. There is no trace of that directory.

giuseppem, your answer has nothing to do with the original poster question, from what is available now, you won't get any hint if the device was jailbroken before or not.

JB - reset - JB - reset … current situation. Was it ever jailbraked ?! How many times ?! How many times was it reset to factory defaults again ? Who knows ?! NOBODY! (maybe Apple, if they got an internal var for this…)

As some wise people already wrote it before, a factory reset kills all trails to the past, you should better close this thread, it is misleading readers that figuring this might be possible. Currently IT IS NOT!

Dear passcodeunlock, thank you for your zealous response.
My answer does not give new information, but it takes up responses from other users If you read carefully the whole thread is talking also (for the most part) of the possibility to understand if an iPhone is or not jailbroken.
My clarification request underlined the answers already given by others in order to clarify whether an iPhone is currently jailbroken or not.

I do not think there is any chance of misunderstanding, since it was repeated throughout the whole thread that you cannot determine if an iphone has ever been jailbroken or not.
My is a constructive request, useful to everyone. I do not understand this useless polemic tone.

you should better close this thread, it is misleading readers that figuring this might be possible.

Don't worry, nothing personal, it is seemingly a "close this thread weekend" wink

Overestimating forensic capabilities is not a problem, move on and please close this useless topic!
