    So I have an iPod Touch 3G 64GB MC model with 3.1.2 jailbroken with Blackra1n.
    I wanna upgrade to iOS 4.0 with an untethered jailbreak. How can I go about this? Which jailbreak should I apply?? Spirit??

    I have a few doubts before upgrading:

    1. I haven't backed up my iPod as my main OS drive is full. Can I change the default backup location in iTunes to another drive???

    2. When I restore the backup after installing iOS 4.0, will all the stuff be restored including Notes?? (I have 12-15 very important Notes)
    And will the apps data be restored? I have stored all my usernames & passwords in the app "1Password" and I don't wanna lose it.

    3. Currently I have iTunes 9.0.3. Should I update iTunes before backing up my iPod or should I update it after backing up? Will it cause any problems for 3.1.2 with blackra1n?

    Please help me. Thanx in advance.

    you cant get untethered atm
    you will need to upgrade itunes as iOS 4 requires iTunes 9.2
    yes everything will be restored from the backup including the notes
    the only jailbreak that you can use atm is sn0wbreeze (tethered jailbreak)

    There is no untethered jailbreak for 3G's at the moment. But there is sn0wbreeze/pwnagetool which are tethered. I am unsure of the first 2 questions, but i would advise to not update your iTunes until @comex's new JB is released, then he will tell us what version of iTunes we need to be on. So i suggest to stay with your 3.1.2 JB with blackra1n for a little bit more
