    unfortunately the new iPod is currently not hackable, the dev team who are working on it have put the ipod on the back burner while they progress with unlocking the 3G

    ok firstly it doesn't damage the ipod

    and 2.2 has already been jailbroken. If you had read my post I clearly said the new ipods are not hackable at present. The 1st gen ipods are because theres a hardware exploit being used which means all future 1st gen firmwares will continue to be jailbreakable.

    the 2nd gen iPod do not have this hardware exploit and therefore unjailbreakable as of yet

    today, i upgraded to iPod 2.2 firmware, and it deleted cydia from my previous 2.1 jailbreak. I went back into QuickPWN, which i had saved on my computer, and tried to jailbreak it. It finished loading the firmware, but the little green check never came up, so I couldnt continue. I also noticed the small print on the bottom saying something like 2.0-2.1 firmwares only.

    I downloaded QuickPWN again from the internet, everything looked the same, but this time the green check came up, and everything went successfully.

    My iPod Touch is a 1st Generation with 2.2 firmware, so give quickpwn a try.

    the only damage it could do is delete all your music... and of course, successful or not, if you send in a broken iPod touch with any jailbreaking files on it, they will not fix it. it voids your warranty.
