    Like the iphones got bricked due to modding, just curious before I go all out buy my touch to mod it. I don't want to end up with a 399$brick.

    Just don't update when it comes out.
    The only thing they can offer to make me even want to consider restoring is flash addon or java addon.

    And in all cases, force restore will put it back in jail and everything; apple in theory should have no way of knowing that you've jailbroken your iPod...

    If you do a force restore... which works quite well as can be verified by almost everyone here... you end up with a basically factory set ipod. Upgrading from that should pose absolutely no problems whatsoever.

    And not upgrading... well that will cause no problems whatsoever either. It seems relatively safe. As others have said though, if you do jailbreak your ipod and something does happen like hardware failure and you are unable to force a restore, then you are in a bad spot as jailbreaking does void your warranty.
