    there is like a 0.001% chance that ur ipod wont work after but it almost dosent happen. it will also void ur apple warranty. But if anything goes wrong, just dfu and restore to factory settings. trust me its worth it to jailbreak and good luck!

    Anything done while jailbroken Can be reversed thru a DFU restore, so there are basically no downsides.

    DFU restore will always work jailbreaking will not break it. The only way DFU will not work is if your ipod is physically broke from dropping or something.

    3.0 is a little buggy. 2.2.1 has little to no bugs.

    dfu is a hardware function, and will allow your ipod to be restored to factory settings no matter what happens to the software. unless you have a hardware problem, none at all!

    umm no. there is NO chance your ipod will be bricked and if it doesnt respond you can ALWAYS restore. its really that simple. no cons at all because unless you delete the bootloader or bios by some absurd reason you will ALWAYS be able to restore.

    Whyd you even tell your dad...?

    Anyway jailbreaking wont do anything to your iPod that can harm it.

    It simply allows you to install third-party applications
    (SOME PRETTY f***IN SWEET ONES) by bypassing some of Apple's restrictions.

    And like every single other post says, if you need to take it to an Apple Store for any reason, you can just put it in DFU Mode and restore it back to factory settings.

    Pros - Third-party apps (WinterBoard, SBSettings, etc. etc.)
    Cons - None

    P.S - Dont bring it to an Apple Store with it jailbroken, while your jailbroken, its a temporary void of warranty.

    P.P.S - Dont let daddy drag you down.

    Good Luck

    To Dad -
    I would let your son jailbreak his iPod Touch. It will allow him to have so much fun because you get very bored with a stock iPod Touch... VERY FAST! Jailbreaking opens the iPod Touch to a whole world of new things. And he'll probably be out of your hair more often cause hed be engulfed in his new toy. If for any reason you would want to take it back or bring it to an Apple Store for repairs (screen replacement, etc.), please remeber to DFU + Restore to official firmware.
