    what are the advantages and what is the risk of something
    going wrong?

    Use ZiPhone 2.6b and make sure you click the button that says jailbreak iPOD!! If you don't click the iPod button it will break your ipod. Nothing will go wrong, it is flawless. There is a keyboard bug but there are fixes all over, and if you do something stupid you can ALWAYS RESTORE.

    Otherwise, it's not neccessarily worth it to jailbreak, depends if you want games and small apps that are useless but cool.

    It's really up to you. With SDK coming out soon you can BUY apps off of the iTunes store. With jailbreaking, you can get apps for free through installer. But with jailbreaking you could and probably will void your warranty. So either pay money for SDK and apps(most likely we will have to pay for the iTunes apps) or risk your warranty and or more with jailbreaking.

    well i personally think that it's worth it to jailbreak just so you can customize your ipod with summerbaord and customize, not to mention eBooks and emulators.

    Yeah, I felt the same as you when I was deciding to jailbreak, you can only permanentaly brick it if you are are doing some SERIOUS hacking like inventing new jailbreak methods.
    After you jailbreak you're like not jailbroken iPods are well gay.

    I think you should as soon as you get it. You definatly wont regret it. Since you said your new to the ipod touch, I wouldnt try anything to serious like dual booting. I heard if you mess up it can "brick" your ipod. But anyway good luck and happy birthday.
