    I'm thinking about jailing breaking my georgeous iPod touch to get more stuff on it, but I'm scared it will be bad for it.
    Would anything wrong happen to my iPod besides bricking it?

    Bricking your iPod is almost (maybe completely) impossible unless you purposefully do it by deleting important folders. If anything goes wrong, you can always restore to factory settings and it will be as good as if you bought it that day. So no, as long as you follow some good guides and don't mess with folders you're not familiar with, jailbreaking will not ruin your iPod.

    First of all, jailbreaking is a process that has been around for a while. There are simple applications, for both PC and Mac, that do it for you in a matter of about a minute. Thousands of people have done it, with no problems at all. I think it is pretty safe to say that your iPod will not be bricked or suffer from any damage related to the jailbreaking.

    Now, for some tools:
    ZiPhone - Windows jailbreaking application.
    iLiberty - Mac/Windows jailbreaking application.
    Winpwn - Windows pwnage application.
    Pwnage tool - Mac pwnage application.

    If you need any help with jailbreaking, feel free to send me a PM.

    Great response, except that there is also a Windows version of iLiberty.

    I've always thought for some reason that iLiberty was exclusive to Macs. You learn something every day.

    You will be safe as long as you don't test your limit, in other words if you arn't very good with computers, stick with basic jailbreaking things.

    Ipod Jailbreak

    Not dangerous at all. The worst possible thing that could happen is you have to put it into recovery mode and restore it. I suggest jailbreaking it with iliberty instead of ziphone because iliberty does the exact same thing as ziphone but is more powerful and safer and still put installer on it!
