    So recently my computer's hard drive burnt and i had to get a new one and thankfully i had all my files backe up but sadly the computer doesn't backup exe files so my itunes is gone. So i was wondering if there was a way to sync everything on my ipod back to my computer and not just my music i mean like my apps my contacts and web favorites and all those things. If i remember correctly i think that there was an app on cydia which allowed syncing to another computer but i dont remember what?? so help me out and also will my cydia apps and themes be synced to? or will they be erased?

    well if you register itunes back to your itunes account, it should just sync the apps and stuff back onto your computer, without touching your ipod
    it would only erase them if it wasn't registered to your itunes account i'm pretty sure

    I think muffin15 is right, but I'm not sure. I completely reformatted my hard drive a couple months ago, but when I did it I had all of my itunes stuff backed up, along with my other documents, on DVDs. So when I reinstalled iTunes i just added all of my files again. However, I don't remember whether or not I dragged all the app folders into the iTunes folder or if the apps came back once I got my account registered to the computer again. As far as data like web favorites and contacts go, I dont know any way to maintain those. I have only heard of an app from cydia for it that you can ssh them to your computer with or something.

    The apps and stuff will be transferred over via your itunes account so dont worry about losing them. The music on the other hand wont. You would have to extract it via SSH or something to keep from losing it forever.

    What you need to do when that pops up is if you don't want to erase and sync, what I do in check MANUALLY MANAGE MUSIC AND VIDEO, then just drag and drop items and it will not say to erase and sync it will just copy them over
