    Really can't live without the machine, and back then, there was no jailbreak.

    But now, it seems there is.

    I'm sure you get alot of threads like this, but having been out of the iPod scene for a few months, I need to catchup

    So, is it worth the risk of bricking? and what are the chances of it happening?
    and is bricking non-fixable?
    Is the method simple, and which is easiest? I have seen the redsnow one, and I think the cydia one is a different variation.
    And lastly, is it actually worth it?

    Look forward to your input

    You are very correct. So why don't you just search for these many threads that already have been answered.?

    You can't brick it, redsnow is what you want to use, not worth it unless you really need a cheesy theme or emulators.

    or... *input something here*

    well it's not only emulators and themes.
    There is SBsettings and small toggles which makes the use of your ipod a little more efficient

    So I can't physically brick it?
    What if it goes wrong? Do I just reset, and start again?

    Thanks to the 2 helpful posts,

    If you mess up the jailbreak you can put it in DFU mode and try again.

    Last question, I hope, I assume when you said unless I want a cheesy theme or emulators....

    Then that is an untethered jailbreak?

    Or is that not correct?

    Well if you are going to jailbreak there's no point in doing tethered. So ya, untethered jailbreak get's installer & cydia, where you can download themes, emulators and other apps.

    I used Quick Freedom to do mine, but a lot of people think redsn0w is better.
