    I am thinking of taking the 2.1 update plunge with my First Gen 16 GB Ipod Touch. I want to backup my preferences like Notes, WEP keys, Safari bookmarks and History, and Google Map History. I have TimeCapsule app, but not sure the backups will compatible with 2.1
    I know I will lose all my jailbroken apps.

    You'll lose everything if you jailbreak it I'm pretty sure.

    You can manually backup your files to your computer. Here are the locations for the items you requested (~ is /private/var/mobile/)
    * Notes: ~/Library/Notes/notes.db
    * Cookies: ~/Library/Cookies/cookies.plist
    * Bookmarks: ~/Library/Safari/bookmarks.plist
    * History: ~/Library/Safari/history.plist
    * Maps: everything in ~/Library/Maps/

    Whether or not these files work across different FW I do not know, but I doubt Apple made them incompatible, otherwise, how iTunes wouldn't be able to backup stuff.
