Flashing of the firmware failing. But I thought an ipod can be reflashed even when it has a corrupt firmware. So, nothing?

I used to use it, before I bought a (IMO) vastly superior Zen Vision:M.

I am 99% sure there is no way you could 100% brick your iPod with iPod Linux.

if i do put linux on my ipod will it delete all the songs that are already on it?

You might brick your Ipod. I've never tried putting linux on a Ipod before though so I really don't know. Most experience I've had with bricking is when I downgraded the firmware for my PSP.

It'll start working. o-o

Most likely.

Back when I used it it did.

As long as your iPod connects to your computer and will go into disk mode (which is hardwired into the iPod itself) it can be restored.
