    So my ipod has a ton of dust under the screen and I'm sending it in to Apple to get fixed.

    But I have a jailbroken ipod touch 2g (16gb) and I have a ton of settings and apps that I want to backup.

    Is there an easy way to do this?

    And also: Once I get back the ipod, will I be able to just restore it so it is EXACTLY how it is right now (like my themes, apps, categoies, GBA roms)?

    Um.. you can ssh into your iPod
    goto /var/mobile/Application/####/Documents

    and save the save files but rerember to put them when you resync your apps
    so put those document in a folder like Toy Bot/Documents

    Um.. you can't really save categories settings because i think the application link
    trys to goto /var/mobile/Applications/####

    The thing is the application id changes all the time.

    If you have [LEGALLY PURCHASED] apps then its [PERFECTLY POSSIBLE] to get those back.

    On topic: I prefer to do everything manually through SSH and then put it all back through SSH as well. Upto you.

    Just SSH in and backup /. That way you'll have backed up literally everything, although putting it all back at once might cause problems. Pick and choose what you want to put back, and if you don't know what a folder is leave it alone.

    I ment that if you downloaded illegal apps from [PIRACY]us then you can't get them back.
