    I can't back up in iTunes anymore.. using jailbroken 2.1

    It starts backing up and a dialogue comes up saying "could not back up because the iPod disconnected."

    anyone else getting this and/or have a fix?

    doesn't the quickpwn disable backing up? im not sure but if you jailbreak with quickpwn then you might want to check that out.

    I used Pwnage Tool.

    not a huge deal that i can't back up, but I don't want an error dialogue every time I plug it in, it's just messy. also i read that in 2.1 backups were much much quicker, hoping to see that in action. hm..

    i used quickpwn to jailbreak. i didn't know it disabled backups, i never saw an option for that.
    not a big deal for me either but it is nice to have a back up for restores.

    you have to download the mobileinstallation for 2.1 and ssh into your ipod and replace it. use google to find it. there are plenty posts on this if you dont know what im talking about just search for it.

    iH@CK3RZ, thanks, didn't know i needed to update the file. backups and syncs work perfectly now (and yep, backups are a million times faster under 2.1)

    surely if you are changing the mobile installation file...then tht will write over the one that allows you to install cracked apps...if you have that one
