    I recently 'clobbered' my jailbroken iTouch 2.2.1, It has lots
    of 3rd party apps, not to mention the movies / songs too.

    I've always religiously backed up my iTouch with iTunes thinking
    that in the event of disaster, I could just restore everything to
    my last backup.

    I took a chance with a risky procedure thinking that I was covered
    with my backup I had just created, the procedure failed, and I then
    learned that iTunes only restored a few (not all) apps that came from
    the iTunes store.

    This is a major loss of many months of installing, tuning, and uploading
    of 3rd party software and movies / songs.

    I have two questions:

    (1) are any of the backup's written with iTunes any good to restore
    The lost 3rd party apps or other media that -were- on the iTouch?

    (2) What is a better app or procedure to backup -everything- on a
    jailbroken iTouch, including movies and songs?

    Thanks for your suggestion(s)
