    My ipod touch is freezing itunes everytime itunes is open and I connect my ipod. I found online that I might be able to fix this by reformatting my ipod and then restoring it. My question is if I reformat the ipod (I think it'll restore it to factory settings), will this erase my backups or anything, or will I be able to restore it to the most recent backup?

    You canalways restore your ipoT from a backup, except if you made that backup when it was jailbroken, cuz it'll mess you up.

    Thought so. It's confusing saying "reformatting my ipod and then restoring it".

    By reformatting, I hope you dont mean deleting your partition.

    I think you mean DFU Mode, and then Restore. In that case, all your data gets erased.

    Download AptBackup from Cydia and it backs up ALL your cydia apps.
