    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I have some questions...

    I am thinking about jailbreaking my iPod. I have some concerns though:

    IS there anyway that jailbreaking my iPod Touch will break it permanently? I don't want to do this then have it stop working!

    Can I get it back if it gets bricked/I want to have the normal OS again?

    Sorry if this is the wrong place, or these questions are dumb, but I just wanted to know. Thanks!

    If anything goes wrong you can always restore, and you can't brick an iPod Touch unless you really want to ;p

    Well, I went ahead and did it, and it appears to be working. That's good!

    Just for future reference, if you think you're bricked:

    You're not. Ever. It is impossible (literally impossible) to brick an iPod touch. It cannot happen.

    Oh, and don't use Installer. Use Cydia.

    Technically, it is possible, if you screw up the NOR enough. But it's practically impossible unless you're really trying.
