    Its unlikely you'll need it 'fixing'. You can just restore it back to normal if you need to so cant void the warrenty.

    Jailbreak isn't worh it anymore

    Now that 2.0 is out and all the cool Games and some other stuff from Installer are in the AppStore there is no reason to jailbreak. I guess if you want Game System Emulators (NES,GBA,SNES,GAMEBOY,) and Quake on your iPhone there is a reason to jailbreak. But you can also do that on your PC or Mac. Jailbreaking is just not worth it anymore and it will mess up your iPod/iPhone and voild your warranty and you have to restore allot. And your iPod/iPhone can brick up. With the AppStore you can act like you have a jailbroken iPod/iPhone.

    This post is a joke, coming from "iTouchHacker".

    The AppStore does not allow large company apps to be ported to 2.0. App Store for a smaller fee than by the large companies (See: Tris). Jailbreaking allows these semi-copyrighted apps to be distributed free of Apple influence and fee. The point of emulators on the iPod touch i to have them on the iPod touch, I.E. away from computers.

    Jailbreaking does not mess up your iPod, and a simple restore will re-enable the warranty. I have not restored, unless you want to call updating to 2.0.2 to re-jailbreak from 2.0 a restore. An iPhone/iPod touch cannot be bricked; you show me one iPod that has been bricked by accidental software usage, and I will give you a a large sum of money.

    think of it this way, your ipod is your friend, and is in jail, its the perfect time to "break" him out, should you? in jail he has access to the basic neccesitys ( in a way), but out of jail anything is possible

    Wow, this is probably, seriously the 1,000,000th thread like this that I've seen saying "ohhh should i jailbreak it im scard ill sreww it upo". My answer is - MAKE UP YOUR OWN DAMN MIND! If I have to treat you like a child and make all your decisions for you, then yes, jailbreak your freaking iPod. I honestly don't care.
