If you don't want a brick, the smart thing to do would be to forget about jail-breaking your iPod touch. Come January when 3rd party apps start selling through the iTunes store (and Apple starts raking in 10% for each app sold) there is a (strong) chance that they might push another update down the pipes that will leave you with big problems.

I didnt think you could brick the touch -- just restore it in itunes if you have issues. I mean I froze mine a couple times (my fault not the jailbreaking methods) and just restored it......

Yea, crap is just pouring out of his mouth. I heard it was a congenital disorder.

1) Its ok to update
2) You can go to www.jailbreakme.com and jailbreak, it WILL NOT BRICK YOUR IPOD!
3) If you do jailbreak, I advise not to update if iTunes asks, because it will eather brick your iPod or at least get rid of all 3rd party apps, most likley disabling the current jailbreak method as well, so you will have to wait before you can use your apps again.

I believe the reference is meant to imply turning your ipod into a completely useless inanimate object, like a brick. Rendering it useless.
