    You guys will be shocked but it is technically able to brick the ipod touch
    If you guys attempt to dual boot and you fail you will be left with two partitions or what not and rendering your device unable to restore. Correct me if i am wrong but thats a useless ipod touch right there.

    Well, you still have the NOR and recvoery mode..... Maybe somethng over there, or DFU, but only on that one partition. I tought the dual boot was for s5l8900x (iPhones, Old iPod Touch) devices only. Oh well I'm not trying it. AS long as you don't sscrew up, you should be fine. OR DFU restore on the blank partition.

    It is possible to brick if you know what you're doing and are actually trying to brick it.
