    A BootROM that destroys itself when tampered with.
    Simplified: An iPod that bricks itself when someone attempts to jailbreak it.

    I wouldn't mind it. I'm sure people will find a way around it. I don't really find jailbreaking to be that useful anymore with iOS4, anyways.

    I would because I only decided to jailbreak after I had my iPod. Also, I got it as a gift, so... I've been unjailbroken for a little while now, but I'll re-jailbreak wihth comex's tool.

    No.

    The eFuse on the Motorola Droid X simply forces you into restore mode until you restore to stock signed Moto firmware.

    Same thing happens in iTunes already with custom firmwares needing to be signed correctly.

    Now the iOS4 brings multitasking and wallpapers (pretty much the only thing i used for jailbreaking), I would buy one.

    I'd always have my first gen iPod touch if I wanted to mess around haha.

    That's what Motorola's eFuse is like.
    The original eFuse would destroy itself.

    Either way, the OP is asking what would you do if you could only use firmware provided by the manufacturer.
