    I have 2.2.1. iPod touch 2G and it's been restoring for almost 10 minutes. I didn't a ton of stuff either..

    And I can't exit it either. :S

    A few seconds. It backs up the data of your apps, but not the apps itself. Hard reboot, apply redsn0w, then try again.

    AptBackup doesn't even save the data of your jailbroken apps. All it does is make a list and reinstall them.
    It will "backup" Winterboard itself but not your themes. SSH into /Library/Themes and backup those yourself.

    ah, i wish i had known that before.

    i screwed my ipod up and had to re-jailbreak thinking aptbackup would save me.

    oh, just an extra 2 hours of my life setting it up again.
