    Hi

    I've finally got my iPod Touch, and am considering Jail breaking it.
    Pretty much for two reasons. I'd like to run the nintendo emulators,
    and I want a better way to sort all my apps.

    Anyway, my biggest hesitation is (other than being tethered) what happens to the saved game/app preference and or data on my iPod Touch?

    Does it get reset? For example, my Dad has a couple golf games on his iPod and now I can start building up my characters stats on mine.
    Now, if I jailbreak after starting to build up my characters, is that information lost?
    Or vice versa, build up my characters on a jailbroken iPod, and than decide to go back to normal.

    Come to think of it, do I lose that data when I delete an app, and than put it back on later?

    I'd appreciated your insight and experience on the matter.

    Although, it will probably be a while before I get a response, Holidays and all that.

    All saved data stays the same.
    When going back, you have to restore.

    Don't jailbreak on your dad's/your ipod. He'll screw something up.
