    Is it possible that I can jailbreak my iPod touch 2g to 3.0 without losing all the data on it?

    Or can I back up all the data then add it back on later?

    I don't want to spend 50+ hours getting all my game/app saves back.
    Thanks in advance!

    How do I back up my music and things?
    I can't find an option in iTunes to do that.
    My hard drive broke and I lost all of my music.
    And what's apt backup and where can I get it?

    Use Sharepod to copy your media from your iPod to your computer.

    3.0 is a bit buggy, but it's still worth the upgrade.

    Once you've backed up the unjailbroken ipod on iTunes, then jailbreak it, how do you get everything back on to the ipod?

    if you're already on 3.0 with all your data synced before you jailbreak it should just flash the rom and keep all your data on the device. You don't have to restore before you jailbreak with redsnow.

    Ive read that its more stable to do the restore. And once its jailbroke i can just sync it and it will all be put back on?
