    I'm thinking about jailbreaking my iPod because I've had iPod Linux on my 1G Nano, but I'm afraid of ruining my iPod.
    How often does an iTouch actually get bricked in attempted jailbreaking? Would it happen from messing up in the process or is it just something that there is a chance of happening? I don't have a warranty, so I don't want 400$ down the drain...
    What is the benifit of jailbreaking? I know the installer app lets you get a lot more applications (and free?). But what else is there besides modification?
    And finally, can I play bought movies and songs with a jailbroken iTouch?

    you cant brick your touch first off
    you can customize and theme your ipod to the max and yes you can still watch bought movies with a jailbroken ipod touch

    Can I still play bought songs? I'm not sure how jailbroken iTouches work. Does it still keep the main firmware or something? Because I know on iPod Linux no mp4's playing apps could be made because of copywrite.
    Thanks for the reply

    So I really would have no problem trying this out, then if I don't like it I can just put it back to how it was? Without a problem? Obviously I might encounter some problems as I know from IPL. But no real major problems?

    It's basically the same accept you can theme it, get apps that aren't allowed in the App Store, get free apps (illegal), and a few other small things.

    hope all goes well.
