    So basically I'm on 3.0 Jailbroken on my iPod touch 2g and need to upgrade to 3.1 to use some of the latest apps and I want to know the easiest way to do it while saving most of my app data and jailbroken apps.

    I was thinking of doing a upgrade to 3.1.3 then Jailbreaking again using BlackRa1n, a restore on iTunes for my app data and a restore on Rock for my jailbroken stuff.

    Any thoughts?

    Blackra1n won't do 3.1.3, and GeoHot's moved onto hacking the PS3. Redsn0w 0.9.4 will do the iPod Touch 2G, but you'll need 3.1.2 firmware already to finish the jailbreak.

    if you want to keep your jailbreak data, use aptbackup to back them up. then update to 3.1.3, jailbreak with redsn0w using the 3.1.2 ipsw, and use aptbackup again to restore your jailbreak apps.

    is aptbackup 100% reliable because I've heard that it can be buggy at times

    and am I right in thinking that my iTunes backup will not save things like game's progress and high scores ?

    backups do save progress in apps. aptbackup is only buggy if you use it to backup apps that were made for earlier firmwares only.

    I have the 3.1.2 .ipsw would it be safer to update to that or is 3.1.3 totally fine?

    3.1.3 is fine on a 2nd Gen ipod touch, but to jailbreak with redsn0w you need the 3.1.2 ipsw
