ok, what I am confused about, am i right to think the only way for Apple to either brick or make it difficult/impossibe to use apps is through Firmware update? so, unless we do a firmware update, we are safe, right? or is there another way for them to stuff things up? Through wi-fi somehow? Apologies if this seems like a silly question... i am new to the world of "ipod modifications".. i guess what i'd like to know, should i hurry up and install as many apps as possible because something might happed to prevent it later, even if i dont update firmware? thanks to all the experts once again!!
