    All,
    I used winpwn to jailbreak my ipodtouch 2 different times. I installed customize both times and it caused my ipod to brick. I think I will go without Customize for now till they work out all of the bugs.

    Your iPod isn't bricked, first of all. A brick is when your device turns into an unusable, unrestorable, unfixable state. So that didn't happen.

    And it might have been something else you did, since lots of other people here including me use Customize + Winpwn just fine.

    actually common terminology for an iPod Touch is:

    Brick(ed)- when the device gives you a SWOD (fixable via DFU force restore)
    metalBrick, or permabrick- is when your device is COMPLETELY unusable, unrestorable, there are only a few ways to do this, and all are very difficult to do

    Really?
    I've heard of a permabrick before, but never heard of a metalbrick. lol.

    Anyways, thanks. I guess I'll stop telling people that now.

    And aren't SWOD's also fixable by replacing some .plist file through ssh?

    some are, some aren't it depends what you did to mess up your iPod, and put it in the SWOD state in the first place...

    Yeah, I know metalbrick isn't used much, I've only seen people use it once every so often, they're just simple nick names

    Besides, my brain is incapable of coming up with a better nickname xP
