    How does briking really happen because im scared to brick my Ipod Touch because i have alot of themes on my iPod and alot of mods to it. Sometimes if i download a theme from Cydia my iPod would turn off and it would turn back on which is not normal and what does that mean?

    I'm new here but according to everyone else bricking doesn't happen..... Or if it does it is 0.0001 percent of the time, many people get their iPod freezing for a short time mixed up with actual bricking. Remember that anything that does go wrong with an iPod touch CAN be fixed. For example my iPod froze a few days ago but I fixed it be force turning it off, turne it back on and it was stuck on the apple logo for about 15 mins but I didn't panic and right after the 15mins it was fixed. So really if anything does go wrong don't worry cos it most likely can be fixed.

    To answer your question about what could cause problems with your iPod then most likely overloading it with too many mods and stuff. Just make sure that the mods are safe and there aren't loads.

    An iPod can not be bricked unless you open it up. And mess around with things.

    How many mods and themes do you have running?

    Bricking is rare... but it does happen. It like being bit by a shark. Its not likely.

    you have to either be trying to install android, or trying to brick it.

    only messing around in the core files will brick a ipod

    the only other way is to pretend its a brick and throw it
