    Hey Guys,
    So I'm running a 8gig 3rd gen ipod touch with firmware 3.1.2. I jailbroke it a few days ago with spirit and have messed around with it a little but I still need help!
    I already custumized it with winterboard and stuff, but any other must-have apps?
    Also, how do you back-up everything on your ipod?
    haha i know i sound like the noobiest noob ever, but please help!!
    Any other tips and trick would be much appreciated!!!!

    Welcome!

    BackUp: Go to iTunes (When Your iDevice is Plugged In) and Right click your iDevice in the column to the left. Click 'Back Up'

    Must-Have Apps: SBSettings, Five Icon Dock, Five Column Springboard, Categories...

    Oh! And just a tip: Don't talk about piracy here, just for future reference, lol, quite a few newbie's make that mistake.

    Welcome to Multi-touch Fans! Be sure to read the rules ans search before you post!!
    A must have app for me is Activator, it lets you control your iPod in many different ways, check it out, you'll see what I mean. And definitely Cydelete, that lets you delete any Cydia app with an icon, just like a normal app store app, without having to go into Cydia!

    Nope, just music and apps etc. all non-jailbroken stuff

    Nope, although getting aptbackup from Cydia gives you backup for jailbreak apps

    Oh, and if you don't have wifi, your gonna want afc2add and iFunbox. You can use iFunbox on the computer to put themes/deb. Files. Ummmm... I was gonna put up a link to a place where you can get deb. Files... But, I dunno if it's allowed. But it's not piracy,it only has the free stuff, and it dosent even have all of them. Oh, and deb files you put in var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall on your iPod thru iFunbox for automated package install.
