This is a temporary sticky thread to resolve a commonly asked question: Q: Is jailbreaking risky / harmful / warranty breaking? A: Jailbreaking is not risky or harmful as long as you have basic computing and iPod touch skills (ie. using iTunes, restoring, DFU Mode) as well as some common sense. However, iPod touch Fans is NOT responsible for any damage to your device as a result of jailbreaking or attempting to jailbreak. Jailbreaking does void your warranty, however if you restore your device through iTunes (virtually a 1-click process), any traces of the jailbreak are removed. Therefore, your warranty is no longer void.
