Are there any pros of using redsn0w to jailbreak my iPod instead of getting a custom firmware?
Um, you don't have to restore if you use redsn0w.
Redsn0w: Jailbreak over current data on iPod/iPhone
Custom: Restore, and re-sync everything
You don't with a custom firmware either. Shift-click "Check for Updates" instead of "Restore"
Oh, I never knew that.
I've been unjailbroken for a long time now Please Register or Log in to view images
I take back what I said.

What is the difference between " shift+check for updates " and " shift+restore " ?
Check for updates -- Will keep all your non-jailbreak data, just like when updating from say... 3.0 to 3.1. (but this method sometimes gets error 16XX for some people, but not me)
Restore -- Deletes ALL DATA.
But you could always restore from backup, can't you?
Sure, but it takes a while to backup/resync a backup.
shift-click-Check for Updates is much faster.
Well, thanks for the info!
