    ok i havent been using my ipod for a wile and im at 3.1.2 with blackra1n jailbreak right now (itouch 3g).... recently i noticed there was an untethered jailbreak for 3.1.3 called spirit....

    here are my questions:

    1)should i go through the hassle or wait for OS4.0? can someone plz quickly give me the date of its coming?.... is it in august?
    2)HOW can i update from 3.1.2 blackra1nJB to 3.1.3 spiritJB WITHOUT losing my data(ie no restoring)?(i dont need the basics just run me through wat to do in a sentence or two =])

    oh 4.0 is that close? thx.....

    darn guess i have to restore then to get 4.0 too....
    that leaves me with one question....

    how do i back up the save data of games and apps? ive put too much time to start over through all of it....

    correct me if im wrong but do i go to /var/mobile/applications/ and basically backup those random numbered folders and put them back there after restore? will that work?

    Not sure about 4.0, but you can't upgrade firmware without restoring, just backup ur shizz first

    hmm well since 3.1.2 is the first firmware ive used and it was done by factory...(neva really restored updated it ect).. if i upgrade to 3.1.3 or 4.0(when it comes out) after i back it up on itunes i:

    1)restore from backup
    2)jailbreak device

    or is it the other way around...

    I think that order is correct (may want to double check), I recently upgraded and i can tell you its worth it, Cydia works plenty better on 3.1.3
