    Hi... I broke my ipod touch in a motorcycle accident..

    I would really liek to recover my notes... is it possible? I had a lot saved there.

    What would I need to do to recover them?

    The broken ipod is actually fine... except the cracked screen that only shows as white fuz...

    But if I plug it into the computer I can access it through Itunes, and I already moved all my songs over to my computer with TuneAid.

    Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

    I'm not sure if you are able to. Are you jailbroken? (I'm guessing that you aren't on 1.0.1 anymore)

    there is a very simple way. just let me search it (the path for it )and then u copy the file from the path i will give u and then open the file with a special editor (think its a plist editor) and save the plain text.(or just reupload it in the same directory in your new ipod (which have to be jailbroken)

    edit: there u go:
    /var/mobile/Library/Notes/

    files should be something like:notes.db/notes.idx/... (save em all)

    try to access it with ifunbox (u need to be jailbroken by redsn0w or have afc2 installed or anyhow else get access to that directory) or something else (if installed and working:try openssh).

    eventually ur notes are also in ur backup in itunes.eventually.

    if u got no access to the whole filesystem and there is a (complicated) way to restore to 2.2.1 without losing ur files and data.then jailbreak with redsn0w 0.3 and then u have access.(->http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=280127)

    If it's working fine, except for the screen. There is a program called diskaid that you could use, but you might need abc2add installed to do it properly. Otherwise, as xitz your fearx suggested, ssh should help you out, as well. You just need to be aware of the directory location of your notes.

    open up itunes (on that cmputer u someday successfully synced something) it will "unlock" it,

    edit:if only the screen is broken i think u could DIY replace the screen (cost about ~30$)
