Ok people, you need to stop freaking out! Apple would not brick you iPod through an update because if they did, they'd lose most of there most loyal users (most loyal users know more about the systems and most likely have jailbroken.) Also, Apple would get a bad reputation for this and it would just cause chaos because many people would be screwed. Also, why would they brick your ipod for updating? THEY WANT YOU TO UPDATE SO YOU WON'T DO IT AGAIN! DUH! people come on, use common sense!
