    Bricking is when your device is rendered completely useless after trying to change its firmware or something around that area. Bricking is rare and when i say rare i mean it is as rare as finding a pink elephant on a black day...it is not going to happen. Sometimes it will seem the touch is bricked when it freezes but it can be restored.

    ^what he said, also it's not fixable

    if it is, then your thing wasn't bricked

    however it can happen with pwnage, it's not THAT rare

    I have never seen a case where the ipod was ruined beyond repair. I have never even heard of someone bricking their ipod...most of the time it is a false alarm and the ipod is only frozen.
