    Hi,

    I have an Ipod touch 8gb 3rd gen jailbroken with blackra1n tethered on 3.1.2. How do I jailbreak with spirit without losing all my cydia stuff and apps. I know I have to upgrade to 3.1.3 but won't that erase my stuff?

    Thanks

    well you dont have to upgrade you just need a fresh firmware.
    and i don't know how to keep the jailbreak stuff you can always just redownload it's not that hard.

    If you are already jailbroken, you will need to restore, which will also update you to 3.1.3.
    There isn't really a straightforward way to keep all your cydia apps etc, easier to just redownload them after you re-jailbreak.

    Heres's something I found from google:
    http://www.everythingicafe.com/foru...we-backup-cydia-and-3rd-party-apps-32970.html
    You can install "AptBackup" (use Cydia and search for it) and it will backup a list of al the apps you've installed via Cydia. That list then gets backed up when you do a normal backup to iTunes. Then after you have to restore your iPhone, use AptBackup to restore the list and Cydia will install them all back at the same time.

    Updating gets rid off them too. You need to back them up with aptbackup or a similar app.
