    Well I have an iPod Touch, and I think that the touch cannot be bricked via PwnageTool because it doesnt have a bootloader right? Only the iPhone. So that means only the iPhone could be bricked by Pwnage. Because even if you load a corrupted firmware to your iPod, you could simply restore to an original again. But not if your bootloader is messed up on an iPhone.

    I could be totally wrong, correct me if I am.

    I'm just trying to figure out if Pwnage is going to mess up my iPod when Winpwn comes out.

    Yeah it's going to screw it over and then Apple will refuse to fix it. After that you'll see talking trees and pigs flying.

    it does the same thing to an iPhone that it does to the iPod. They both have the same bootloader. Almost the same. If your in the middle of the pwnage prosses and it gets interupted its very posible to wreck the bootloader. iPhone or iPod touch.

    every electronic device with a firmware has a bootloader, if you mess with it, itll die, thats what happened to my old razr, the bootloader got erased, so it went bye-bye

    It's not extreme - it's pretty basic in my eyes.

    I did it just fine.

    JUST PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

    Don't watch YouTube while Pwning

    PWNAGETOOL CAN BRICK YOUR iPHONE

    I can guarantee you that the iPhone can be bricked with PwnageTool. This is because the bootloader is damaged as well as the firmware.
