    Hey all. I would like to report that I have finally decided to jailbreak my touch =) I did it the other night without too much of a problem.. the only thing that took me a few tries was the timing for DFU mode.

    I have a quick question or 2 about apps.

    1.) Does anyone know if theres a way to increase the amount of times information is fetched from the server? Like I was curious if I could get my touch to check my mail every 3-5 minutes.. as opposed to the 15 minute in the settings?

    2.) Also does anyone know of an app that lets me customize the top status bar?

    3.) If I were to backup my ipod through SSH .. and I need to restore for any reason... could I just drag all the files back onto my restored ipod and have it be the way I restored it as? (meaning will all layouts, settings, contacts, etc. be copied over?)

    Not that I know of. Anyway it'll kill your battery to push that often.

    Winterboard allows for status bar theming and also 'Advanced Settings' allows you to have a numercial battery, change the operator name, time etc... both on Cydia.

    I don't think it's as simple as that... there's a backup prog you can use in Cydia, though I would always suggest starting a fresh each time you restore and re-jailbreak.

    Q: Does anyone know if theres a way to increase the amount of times information is fetched from the server? Like I was curious if I could get my touch to check my mail every 3-5 minutes.. as opposed to the 15 minute in the settings?

    A: its called push notifications. Maybe edit the info.plist via SSH?


    Q: Also does anyone know of an app that lets me customize the top status bar?

    A: Changing the name iPod? and the time? Use makeitmine.

    A: Download an application in Cydia called aptbackup. it backups your cydia apps and everything you downloaded in Cydia. For other files like saved data on apps, just back it up on itunes.
