    If all of my music,picture and apps are in my itunes do I still need to backup everything on my ipod before I do a jailbreak. I do not have any other files other than those as of now.I'm a little confused because I just figured that I could just sync with itunes and everything would get back onto my touch? And if I do need to back everything up I have know idea how to. I have tried to do some searches on back up and it just and everything says backing up jailbreak apps or cydia apps. Also after I do jailbreak will itunes still sync my apps and exlude my cydia apps? thanks

    I would just right click and backup your iPod's settings and stuff, just in case. If you already have everything in iTunes, then it's all good.

    If the jailbreak fails, then just restore, restore from backup, then Jailbreak and add your media/apps back on.

    Right click on your iPod inside of iTunes, on the left side. Then click on Back Up.

    When you back your ipod up does it back up all of your games like high scores, saves etc...?
