    I'm using the latest latest iPod Touch 8gig which is a 2nd generation. I just jail broke it and was reading somewhere that I need to back up my SHSH blob, do I need to do this? If so, how do I?

    You're using a 2nd gen iTouch so no need.

    What are the importance of backing up the SHSH blobs? I tried doing it on my 8GB 2G using AutoSHSH and the program never launched. All I ever got were memory errors.

    You don't need it.

    It's just so if you update by accident without a jailbreak released, you can restore back using the SHSH blobs.
    The 2nd gen doesn't need it because it can be jailbreakable whenever, unlike 3rd gen.

    Raymond,

    Thanks so much for clarifying that. That's one less program I have to worry about. Now if I could only get "iPhone Folders" working on my computer.

    No, only 3G iPods and later 3GS iPhones have to mess with blobs.
