    If you are jailbroken, updating to 3.1.1 might cause the "Connect to itunes screen" also called recovery mode. I have updated 3 friends ipods, all who understood that they would lose jailbreak. All 3 got Recovery mode error 14. Luckily I backed them up.

    So Backup, and be careful

    I'd advise waiting until an official comment is made by iPhone Dev.

    I updated to iTunes 9 because MuscleNerd said that it's fine on twitter. It's pretty much the same with an ugly, glossy interface.

    Upgrading messes things up. It upgrades the firmware, but the jailbroken files still remain. Its like replacing the insides of an orange with the insides of an apple. It just won't work .

    Incorrect Info 3.1.1

    Someone had stated that upgrading to 3.1.1 over top a jailbroken iPod left the jailbroken files on the phone, and just replaced the OS. This is completely wrong. If you have a jailbroken iphone or ipod touch, and you upgrade to 3.1.1, all jailbroken apps are gone, and you can not jailbrake it again, at least not until someone comes out with a program that does that. Also you can NOT restore back to 3.0. Apple made sure of that. I just got off the phone with tech support. So just be patient and wait for the Dev Team. If you are super geeky enough and have and app that will let you jailbreak a 32gig 2nd Gen, ipod Touch, upgraded to 3.1.1 running on Windows XP and using iTunes 9, by all means contact me immediately. boy@woh.rr.com I will worship the ground you walk on and perform bathing rituals for you with my tongue.
