    When i first got my ipod for my b-day in September, i thought it was amazing but then around Xmas i decided to jailbreak it on i think 1.1.1 (correct me if im wrong) ware you would go to jailbreakme.com and install appsnap. about a month later i really messed something up and got the SWoD, and had to force restore. ever since then i have been very nervous about jailbreaking. is there anything anybody can tell me to reassure me that jailbreaking my itouch will not give me the SWoD?? anything would be appreciated.

    What's so scary about getting the SWoD? You just restore...

    sorry to break it to you but nothing on 1.1.1 will ever work... your best bet is to upgrade to 2.1.0
    and jailbreak with with quickpwn...

    wow, sorry but talk about big baby, its just the SWoD, you just restore and restart, sometimes you dont even have to restore.
    So no Biggy, just jailbreak
    Do It!

    It's pretty safe and stable now. The only thing you will lose is music, videos, etc when jailbreaking it.

    I'm really not sure of this. I used QuickPwn both times I did it and it erased all my sh*t.

    Can't you just add them back once you've jailbroken it? There's programs out that can copy files from you iPod to your computer.

    Try this:

    Go to iTunes :

    File>Create New Playlist

    Put all your songs you want in there, then Jailbreak your iPod.

    After Jailbreaking, go to our ipod in iTunes and click on Music. Then Checkmark that playlist that you just made and click Sync. You can get your music back that way.



    That's about the only thing you can do that I know of.
