    Wow, Apple have so much BS in there jailbreaking article.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3743
    Frequent crashes? I haven't had an increase in crashes after Jailbreaking. And loss of data? How would that happen?
    Thats a lie. The dropping calls is cause by using AT&T.
    Apple caused most of these problems by trying to disable things on Jailbroken iPhones.
    It took Apple over 1 month to patch a serious SMS exploit and now they are saying that Jailbreaking it making devices insecure. "introduce malware or viruses", I'm pretty sure the Apple ad said you couldnt get viruses on OSX. Also there have been 0 viruses for the iPod Touch and iPhone.
    It does if you use something like backgrounder, but by a tiny amount when you compare it to how long the charge lasts for.
    You can never brick an iPod Touch. This is a lie.

    Quite a few people have, including me. For loss of data, you could be installing something from Cydia, it crashes/you lose your internet connection, leaving a half-installed mod, causing a boot loop. This necessitates a DFU restore, with loss of data being the main result.

    Apple does have the ability to refute what they have said in an ad, you know. Also Mac OS ≠ iPhone OS. OS X has many mode & different security measures than iPhone OS. Also, this.

    It's still a drop in battery life, though. Although far from a reliable sample size, from my personal experience, I got about 80% of my usual battery life after jailbreaking.

    iPhones can be bricked by attempting to downgrade the baseband. This article is geared mainly towards the iPhone. And also, you can brick an iPod touch. When attempting the dual boot, you can corrupt/remove the wrong partition.

    This is Apple's attempt to scare us into not Jailbreaking. This, in my view, is like saying you can't move the furniture around in a hotel room. (I know its a bad analogy, but it's all I could think of at the time)

    DFU Mode is contained in the device's ROM, which is Read-Only Memory and cannot be overwritten by anything. Therefore, you will always be able to DFU restore.
