    This will be my first upgrade with a JB and I was wondering if Ill have to erase my ipod to upgrade.

    If so what are the best way to back up my ipod's JB apps, music/movies or uploaded stuff e.g. roms?

    I am pretty sure you will have to restore it. To backup all of you jailbroken apps use aptbackup. Its and app in cydia. Just load it up and hit backup. Then plug the iPod into your computer and it should do a back up. Restore with 3.0, jailbreak, and then restore the backup. Download aptbackup and then hit restore and all of your jailbroken thing should be there. It will also restore all of your cydia sources. Somebody correct me if I am wrong.

    it all depends on what you use to jailbreak. if its like redsn0w , then no, you won't have to restore. we will just have to wait and see.

    You will have to restore since you will be upgrading firmware versions.

    No, not safe to upgrade to 8.2 yet, Dev-Team still working on it, and you know you can't JB the official release of 3.0 yet or use the iPhone jailbreak...

    I'm just wondering, when 3.0 jailbreak comes out and we download all our stuff like Winterboard, Cydia, GPSphone, etc will they all work?
