Do you lose your data when you JB?

    I have JB'ed my iPod but due to problems I had to restore a firmware a few times. So I have got a blank ipod and when I restore it, it turns off and needs booting again - that loses everything again!

    Is there any way to backup my pod apart from iTunes or does the restore from backup work properly?

    Restore from back up would not work because it's a new firmware etc. And just back up all your stuff jb then put it back on with your patched fw.

    Are you on a Mac? If you are, you can backup App Data if you need it using the iTunes backup files.
    If not, well you'll lose app data but everything else can get synced back, including the apps themselves.
