    Are there any downsides to jailbreaking your Touch? Is their a potential to cause irreversible damage to your Touch? Will it make future firmware upgrades impossible?

    Is there any reason NOT to jailbreak (other than perhaps some ethical reasons)?

    You're probably going to wear your battery out sooner than you would have otherwise. If you lay off the emulators and iPhysics, it's probably negligible though.

    Search the forums, this question has been beaten to death here! (but in a word: nope. No disadvantages) :D
