    Theres been a couple of iPod Touch Members which say they've bricked their iPod with Pwnage. So for everyone out there, is there a known cause of this? Do certain computers play a part in this? Is it the user's problem? Is it a Pwnage bug?

    A lot of people are now uneasy to Pwn their iPod with Pwnage once they see threads talking about "legitimately" bricked ipods.

    Also, is there a way to get out of this "bricked" state. Those two threads that are currently active still have not unbricked they're iPods yet.

    Why do you think this problem is occurring? Are members pulling their USB cords for fame on forums or just a natural disaster of Pwnage for lucky members?

    People are just making careless mistakes, such as using iPhone firmware. People need to be more careful and take their time when they PWN. If everyone showed some caution when PWNing no one would be bricking their iPod Touches and iPhones.

    One or two people have truly bricked their devices, according to the specifics they are providing.

    and how do you know that they are not just making it up to get a bit of forum fame. I tell you exactly the same story, would everyone believe me. Yes.

    The main cause would be human error if it is true.

    I highly doubt they are trying to "get a bit of forum fame." There's no need to be so judgmental.

    your ipod can definitely be fixed .
    you said your home button works "sometimes" .
    so that means it can be fixed .

    I don't think Half the people here GET why it is bricked.

    And for me to clarify

    Flashing the bootloader is dangerous, what happened as you were flashing it you caused it to get interrupting and now when it ran the code, the hex was wrong meaning it could no longer find the osx or the recovery osx meaning that there is no-longer a way to boot your ipod.

    ONLY FIX:

    1. Reflask the disk, so far, i only think apple can do that
