So after long research,I finally jailbroke my ipod and it was a success but now I am really worrying that maybe something might happen to my really precious iPod(It was a gift to me by my parents and I can't afford to brake it).So what can I do to make myself feel better and maybe a few words of incouragement from you guys.Is there also away to like make the ipod more stronger to hacks?

Guys I really need your help.
So please bare with me for a while please,thanks again.

Edit:
Just to add that I just got this about 2 weeks ago and it still has a really long warranty.

I've never had something bad happening with a jailbroken ipod touch, just avoid putting in too much crap (random tweaks) from cydia it'll slow it down and even crash it.

And you can reverse the process easily: just click restore on itunes, don't restore a backup and voila, clean ipod you can send to warranty in case of problem.

That usually applies when restoring a custom built .ipsw from programs such as sn0wbreeze or pwnage tool or whenever you get some kind of error such as 1600 in iTunes

So all you have to do is restore it and it should be fine right?
So when I restore does it like download the newest version of firmware?

If you want to get rid of the jailbreak yes
iTunes will prompt you to download the latest IOS unless you specify the .ipsw yourself though shift+restore (assuming you have SHSH blobs)

So after restoring I can't like restore backup since that will restore some jailbreak files right?

Yes, it will have traces of jailbreak related items such as settings for Cydia.

Your iPod is two weeks old. What do you need to restore so bad?

Just restore it in iTunes and go get your stuff back. Also, Why are you so paranoid about being jailbroken? Unless you are messing around with iDroid or something you have nothing to worry about.

Except the code signing that's disabled, so you're much more vulnerable to malware. Also, you're losing your warranty if you jailbreak your iPod. And yes, Apple *can* detect whether you've ever applied a jailbreak to your iDevice with recent iOS versions.

Not if you DFU before you return it.

I'm assuming this guy's SpringBoard and stuff is slowing down. It's normal.

If you're worried about someone SSHing into your Touch, then look up how to change the password via a Terminal app.
