    I have a Jailbroken iPod touch with a multitude of Apps on it, along with Winteboard, [PIRACY]us, paid Apps, SSH, etc. I can sync it to iTunes just fine. However, I find that when I try to back it up, it takes hours, literally (meaning overnight, up to 11 hours to back up). I discovered that if I uninstall the App CoolIris, and then backup, the backup completes in under 5 minutes. If I then re-install CoolIris, the backup reverts back to hours long. Has anyone experienced such a phenomenon? Is this just some starnge, idiosynchratic glitch on my device?

    Cooliris

    Cooliris is a free app on the iTunes store that browses the Internet via (1) Google, (2) Flickr (3) Yahoo or other search engines, and displays images of anything you type in. Its a great way to find wallpapers, clipart, etc. I'm starting to wonder if perhaps it creates huge cache files on the iPod, and maybe that's why it junks up the backup process.
