    1. No, unless u decide to smash it.
    2. Themes, Emulators, Extra features
    3. None really, but do lose your warranty, If you want it back then just DFU+restore.
    4. none.

    that's not true. The jailbreak can allow him to do something so amazing it surprises him and causes him to drop it.

    The bad sides, IMO, are that you can install daemons and crap that run in the background and slow down your iPod or kill your battery. A bad app or utility might cause your iPod to go into an endless reboot cycle, curable by a Restore.

    The great things you can do with a jailbreak definitely outweigh the negatives parts of jailbreaking.

    The first step is to find out what firmware you're on. Go into settings on your iPod, then general, then about (I think that's the order at least..). Then tell us what your firmware is. Then I'll give you the next step.
