    I am a little confused...

    I have been reading a lot of threads about "Pwning safe/dangerous?"...

    And there has been a lot of different answers to that question...

    I would just like to know...

    Is there any possible way that I could brick my iTouch?

    Edit:

    I have used pwnage tool to pwn once and I have restored my custom firmware 3 times...

    the first time went fine, but I wanted to change the boot image so I remade my firmware, and then on the 2 and 3 restore installer keep freezing, and I had to force restart my itouch... and eventually I got fed-up and just put my normal 1.1.4 firmware on it, which "un-pwned" my touch... can anybody explain why installer keep freezing?

    I never had any problem with pwnage. try to setup your ipod as new one and don't use a backup. also, update the installer after the restore

    100% safe. The bootloader it exploits is read only. that means no one can change it or modify it. if anything goes wrong you can always restore in DFU mod.

    Read this it clears alot of things up.

    Will do. If you do run into trouble just search on here for how to enter DFU mode and restore.

    Pwnage is safe as long as you don't un plug your ipod while it is pwning.
