    As I mentioned in my 1st post here, I am the new proud owner of a 1st gen. 16gb touch Ipod. I have looked at a lot of info regarding jailbreaking, and have a few questions:

    1. First off, can I backup my Ipod, or can I only reset it with itunes? When I bought it, it was already upgraded to FW2.2. If I reset it with Itunes, will it lose that upgrade? (This is why i ask about backup..since I didn't originally purchase the upgrade, will i lose it in a reset situation)
    2. If I jailbreak, will i still be able to install from the AppStore?
    3. I don't totally understand how the installer.app works. Every post I have read says "once you get installer" etc. Once jailbroken, how do you get and install installer?

    THANKS!!!

    Even tho the previous owner is the one who purchased the upgrade? So the Apple servers (online) have a record of this specific Ipod and knows it should have 2.2?

    Thank you for answering my questions!!!

    Thanks for the info. I got it jailbroken yesterday using QuickPwn. Was pretty straight forward once I got the firmware file downloaded.
