    Hi all,

    Just got my first ipod (touch 16gb ver 2.2.1) and am loving it !!

    My question is :

    I've used redsn0w to jailbreak my touch and this worked perfectly, I use an app called Golf tracker from the app store which keeps track of my golf scores.
    What i was wondering is when the ipod firmware 3 comes out, would upgrading my touch to version 3 wipe my data and thus loose all my scores i'd stored or would i be able to backup with itunes before the update and then restore the data back (i assume it works like this for un-jailbroken ipods but not sure about jailbroken ones).

    Thanks in advance

    what i used was aptbackup. unfortunately it didnt work fully, so i also used a program called cyder. its for windows and all you do is download all the packages onto your computer and when u restore just resync with cyder and all ur apps are there.

    heres a guide: (NOT BY ME)

    pavan, its an appstore app, those things will not affect it

    keepittidy, when your ipod backs up with itunes, its settings (including appstore app settings and scores) are saved, so if you click "restore from backup" after you restore, they should all be on there

    more to the point, when you upgrade to 3.0, you will be clicking the update button, not the restore button, and all of your settings, music, and videos will be left completely intact
