I would like to know if that reset is performed by the booloader or by a linux process (nickel?). Simply speaking, can I brick my Touch if I messed up some of the linux startup files such as inittab or rcS?

S.
When the home key is pressed on power up, the second partition is loaded which performs a format of the first partition.

If you mess up the first partition then that should be fine.

Just don't mess up the second one.
