    Will I be able to directly upgrade my iPod touch 2g 3.0 jailbroken device to 3.1 jailbroken? If so, how? Do I just not check cydia or icy? Does blackra1n need a restore of the device?

    You need to update to a clean 3.1 firmware before jailbreaking with blackra1n.

    Blackra1n doesn't delete anything, just jailbreak it the way you have it.

    No, you don't have to restore it is like redsn0w no restore required. All it does is patch files.

    As long as you push "Check for Update" and then update to 3.1.2 then you will have all your current files. Although I recommend updating by backing everything up with iTunes then restoring the iPod.

    Upgrade to 3.1.2, plug it in quit itunes, then open blackra1n and push the make it ra1n. Once the itouch or iphone restarts and shows the itunes with a cord. Quit blackra1n and itunes then reopen blackra1n and press it again. Your divice will show the itunes and cord then geohot then startscreen with slider. Sorry for the spelling I'm only in Junior High.

    You will lose all of your hacks though when you update to 3.1.2 or whatever. Cracked apps still work though. I would assume though that most of the hacks are easy to get back.
