    Hi,

    I was wondering if it was possible to delete an app, but keep the settings. I'm thinking of clearing a few games off my iTouch but I would like to keep the saves if I wish to return some day. Is this possible?

    Thanks.

    The only thing i can think of is too back up the documents folders etc. to your comp,
    when you ssh your idevice.

    but some games save I think because I've restored a couple of times and after re-syncing a game again the save data,profile, high scores etc. is still there but some don't.

    As he said, in some games it works.

    I might do that, copy the documents folder via ssh, but where is this folder found?

    Thanks.

    Well thats the sucky part. It's different. Once you SSH into the apps folder, then you have to look through each individual folder looking for the correct game. It displays some random code instead of "Ninja.app"

    So basically, this would take some serious time.
