    Hi guys. Before I jailbreak my iPod, I'd like to save some of the settings from my games, such as highscores, the status of my fish, etc.

    I noticed that when I plug my ipod in, it does a backup. Does this backup include iPod app preferences?

    If it doesn't, what's the best way to access the filesystem on a non-jailbroken ipod so that I may copy the preferences off before I jailbreak it?


    Thanks!

    Yes, I did a restore and when synced it with my backup, and all my app preference were still there! I was very surprised

    So your saved games were restored completely?
