    Why is it that every guide says you have to restore to a fresh version of your system version? Can't you just jailbreak it? lol.

    You can just jailbreak with Ziphone or iLiberty without a restore, yes. And the restore is just recommended, I don't really know why.

    I think it cuz some stuff in ur ipod (ie:music videos, preferences) might interfear with the ziphone JB process.

    they tell you to do so because there a certin prefrences that are ersaed when you restore like safari info and sources,that way when you jailbreak or rejailbreak you dont have double packages or overwritting issues

    ok, thanks! thats helped a lot, i'll do some more research then post back, if it is settings then just resetting all your settings in preferences should do the trick!
