    You can't brick an iPod touch. The bootloader that can get bricked is the S-Gold bootloader, which I am pretty sure the touch doesn't have.

    The main bootloader gets flashed but you can reload it by restoring the firmware because DFU mode will be accessible because that mode is located in the bootrom and is not modifiable, and thus the tool cannot mess that up.

    Long story short: If a problem occurs, restore and try again.

    u cant completly brick your ipod, its not just as easy as click restore and its fixed, but more of a painful task to do it, a hassle you might say
