    I would like to restore my iPod touch but I dont want to lose my 8 pages of apps. I'm restoring because iTunes can't read my iPod and I cannot connect to the App store on my iPod, it wont let me download anything. So does anyone know of anyway i can restore my ipod and not lose all my apps?

    If you're talking about jailbroken apps, then yes, you will lose them and everything with it.
    If you're talking about App store apps then, NO, they'll still be there and so will the progress(as long as you restore from backup)

    If you're still able to SSH into your iPod, you can copy the /Applications/ folder to your desktop.

    Would you mind giving me a link on how to do that. You use winscp right? I used to ssh when I first had my iPod, but havent done it in a while so i forgot.
