Is it really even possible to brick an Ipod? I mean short of busting the buttons, interface or something inside. If hardware is intact, I can not imagine any soft way to brick the thing. I assume once the Ipod is born its flash drive (is that correct) is blank. The only code in it must be the ROM (thats the bios right) From there even blank you should be able to go into dfu and upload in image? Is my imagination off somewhere if so, school me, dont flame me.
