    Im not understanding how to backup the SHSH file..I have the same Ipod as the person above and I downloaded the AutoSHSH-3.1.3--3.2 program, If I put the Ipod into recovery mode, doesn't that mean I lose everything
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Wait I think I got it..the Ipod was in recovery mode..and I opened up the program, it located the file, and I saved it to my computer, does it mean Im good to go? I named it 3.1.2 Apple Ipod File.shsh and its 67.2kb..sound right?

    Ok cool..I renamed it to 3.1.2AppleIpodFile.shsh since I was told its not a good idea to have any spaces..so the file size sounds right? so I dont have to do anything else..nothing with cydia because I was reading how you have to do something there or did I just have to "Grab SHSH blob file automatically" using that AutoSSH program(Which by the way was EASY!!) when the new jailbreak comes out..should I stay on 3.1.2 or is it Ok to update to 3.1.3(I was thinking mind as well get the newest firmware but was not sure)

    Well, from what I hear the spirit jailbreak will work on 3.1.2 and 3.1.3. If you for sure have the 3.1.2 SHSH file backed up then it is safe to upgrade to 3.1.3 but I would wait until the spirit release it already out. Then you can never go wrong backing up the 3.1.3 SHSH file just in-case. You can never have to many backups.
