can the ipod touch be destroyed in anyway by jailbreaking it? i heard if it freezes or you want it back to new you just restore, and also the void in warranty will never happene cause you restore, am i wrong? what are the negatives for jailbreaking the pod?

I've jailbroken an iPod Touch 1G, iPhone, and iPhone 3G and it's all worked out fine.

Jailbroken my iPod Touch 1g.

For 3.1.3, you might need to use Spirit.

And there is no problem that comes with jailbreak. But if the worst happens, you can just restore.

I just bought an older iPhone 3G so that I could jailbreak/unlock it for my phone provider (the newest ones can't be unlocked).

Jailbreaking is so worth it, you can do much more with your ipod that way. If anything doesn't work just put it into restore mode, plug it into itunes, restore, and try again with another method. Blackra1n and Spirit seem like the best options.

Worm Hits Jailbroken iPhones; Apple Plans Jailbreak Crackdown (http://lifehacker.com/5400307/worm-hits-jailbroken-iphones-apple-plans-jailbreak-crackdown)

Apple Bans Jailbroken Devices from App Store (Report) (http://news.softpedia.com/news/Apple-Bans-Jailbroken-Devices-from-App-Store-Report-134980.shtml)

Why NOT Jailbreak iPhone?

1. The folks at Apple know what they are doing. They have not enabled multasking — the ability for apps to run in the background, simultaneously — most likely because it is a huge battery drain. By controlling the user experience, Apple ensures that your iPhone “just works,” and you don’t have to worry about managing battery life or any other technical details.

2. Jailbreak could possibly brick your iPhone. “When someone develops something for an Apple product and that development isn’t sanctioned by Apple, you run the risk of it not working as it should, conflicting with the device itself, or just all-around bricking that iPhone,” warns Chris Pirillo, who prefers not to Jailbreak his iPhone because “my iPhone just works already.” But I have never heard of Jailbreak completely ruining an iPhone. The consensus at this forum seems to be that the chance is “extremely slim.”

3. Every iPhone update from iTunes disables Jailbreak. Every time Apple comes out with an update for iPhone, they find a way to prevent hackers from cracking the code again. Hackers then scramble to Jailbreak the iPhone again and release the new methods. That means if you like to download Apple’s iPhone updates, you are going to have to figure out each time how to Jailbreak your iPhone yes again. Do you really want to play this cat and mouse game?

4. Jailbreak might increase your risk of getting a virus on your iPhone. The only two iPhone viruses ever reported have spread across iPhones that have been Jailbroken. That’s not to say the iPhone platform as Apple built it is totally secure. In fact, some say compromising an iPhone’s security is “child’s play” (i.e. easy).

5. Jailbreak voids your iPhone warranty. If your iPhone is bricked because of Jailbreak, or if your iPhone has another problem and it happens to be Jailbreaked, your warranty becomes void. I once saw a sign at the Genius bar of The Falls, Miami Apple Store that warned customers not to Jailbreak iPhones or they would void their warranties. Harsh.

These concerns are honestly a bit overblown, and jailbreaking isn't for everone (the satisified or insecure). The amount of features jailbreaking adds, though, is significant for anyone interested in more capabilities. And I've had a jailbroken ipod restored and returned to Apple no problem.

I am in Tech industry. I can tell you it is all hyped. They put fear in customers so they don't ask for jailbreak.
