    If i upgrade from 3.1 to 3.1.2 and restore from a jailbroken backup could it potentially crash my ipod

    Nope, I do so all the time. It's safe to restore from jailbroken backups, even if your device isn't jailbroken

    Out of 2 years jailbreaking, I never knew this.

    Yep, things like Custom carrier logos, numeric battery and even poofed apps still work even though the device isn't jailbroken

    The customizations work nicely that way.

    However, I'd say that using a backup whenever you have gone to a x.0 update is stupid. That is asking for some pretty major problems.

    Restore your device, but not from back up.
