    Ok so my brother in law just found my Ipod Touch after it being missing for 2 months. During this peroid the 3.0 firmware has been released. Now before i run off to buy this upgrade is their anything i should do beforehand. I had jailbroken my Touch before i lost it. Will i be able to just to buy the upgrade off itunes and then jailbreak. I know I will lose all my stuff most likely but considering an hour ago i didnt have an iPod period I dont mind much.

    You dont have to do much.

    I SUGGEST that your iPod is running official firmware (not jailbroken) BEFORE you upgrade.

    Make sure that you have iTunes 8.2


    After upgrading, you can use redsn0w 0.7.1 (dont use 0.7.2) and you can jailbreak with that.

    Redsn0w 0.7.1 DOES NOT erase any data so before you jailbreak you can load it up with the stuff.

    Cydia doesn't work too too well w/ jailbroken 3.0 but ICY works perfect

    In case you didn't know, Icy is an alternative to Cydia. Its way easier to use and it has a landscape mode. Download it w/ Cydia. The source is apt.diprev.com (I think)

    Hope I could help.

    redsn0w 0.7.1:

    By the way, just a correction, the repo is apt.ripdev.com not diprev.
