    Hi, I'm new to all this jailbraking stuff.

    I currently own a iPod Touch 2G Software 3.0
    I have seen the tut and it seems quite simple to jailbrake it.
    I was wondering however if it will take all my music, video and apps off the ipod?
    Also I have seen on youtube that jailbraking gives you Cydia is that the only app? I don't want dTunes and any of the other ones I just want Cydia.
    One last thing, I don't have the 3.0 Software file as this is a new computer and I can't get the file as it says my iPod is already up to date and it won't download.
    Help will be appreciated!
    thanks

    When you Jailbreak with Redsn0w, it doesn't require a Restore or anything, therefore all your Music/Videos/Apps are all left Undisturbed.

    Yes, Jailbreaking automatically gives you Cydia, nothing else.

    If you tell me what OS you are running, I can help you find your IPSW file.

    Hope this helps

    Hello and welcome to the forums

    iTunes back up everything so you won't miss any media file

    Here is where you can find your IPSW file on Windows Vista or XP

    For XP C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    For Vista C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    For Mac OS X : ~/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates

    Note that you may need to turn on the hidden files option !

    Thanks for all the help, I have found my software files and am now ready to jailbreak.

    One more thing, after I jailbreak will I still be able to sync music/videos to my computer or will iTunes not detect it anymore?
