    I was just wondering if after i use quickpwn to jailbreak my 1st gen ipod touch and the jailbreak is complete, is it possible to brick the ipod after the jailbreak process, what about for the iPhone?

    Thanks

    no, but if you ever run into problems you can always restore and you will be back to normal

    Thanks for the quick replies,
    I was just wondering because I have jailbroken my iPod a few times and ran into a problem once a while ago, just wondering if the risk factor has lowered. Is it riskier to do this with the iPhone 1st gen?

    Thanks

    I believe that iPod Touches CANNOT be bricked, but the iPhone can...

    Thanks, I think the best question I can ask is, after the jailbreak on any device iPod/iPhone, can anything go wrong, or do the problems like the endless apple logo only occur while your are going through with the jailbreak process?

    Having jailbroken my ipod several times, I can tell you its pretty foolproof to do. no risks of bricking it if you dont mess around the installation.... and even if you do mess it up, you can just restore it. Be brave!!! let your iPod (or iPhone?) be free!
