First, I'm not a noob, i've just been off the scene for a while. Im running 2.2.1, just got pwnage tool 2.2.5 (on a mac) and built a custom restore file of 2.2.1. But that stuff i've done before. what i HAVEN'T done, is jailbreak after 2.0 (3rd party apps) and i've built up LOT of app data (games, finance, other settings and whatnot). So, i backed up my ipod, and turned off the automatic syncing. My hope is that when i pwn my ipod, it will ask me to restore a backup, and i can choose that one. Am i right? and if i am... does that backup even contain that app data? sorry if this has been asked elsewhere, but i couldn't find it in one place. Thanks in advance. I'm hoping for some speedy replies. ~Jak Edit: I'm running 10.5.6, so i believe there is a problem there right? how do i fix it?
