I have the new unibody macbook and I can personally confirm that you CAN jailbreak on them. I did run into a problem though... jailbreaking my iphone 3g v2.2.1 the pineapple boot screen was stuck on a loop after you install the firmware. It is a problem with the usb drivers (i heard it was a type of apple fix, not sure though). If you use a usb hub to plug into the mac, then the ipod/iphone into that, it works fine. That's what I had to do. I just went to staples and bought a cheap 4-port travel Belkin hub.
ALSO... it's wise to make a clean un-jailbroken backup in itunes first. Then restore your device before you jailbreak it, then you can resync to add your saved contacts or whatever. The reason being that if you have a crap load of apps (sum 4+ pages worth) it'll freeze on you during the process. Which is what happened to me. I ran into 2 problems and both were solved, i'm pretty positive you can't brick your device when jailbreaking. I hear with unlocking it's a different story.
This is my first post, so I hope this helps!
