Yes. It does work. At least for me and a couple other users i have seen on these threads. Mine was well past the jailbreak, installed a lot through Cydia, and i decided to restore from a pre-jailbreak backup. The progress bar in itunes stopped halfway, but the ipod went back to the homescreen having fully restored my old settings. Springboard also crashed several times, but i hard reset the ipod into DFU mode and rebooted with the redsn0w hack. After though, it stopped crashing. Even though, after tinkering, it does work after installing jailbroken apps, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU RESTORE DIRECTLY AFTER JAILBREAKING IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO SO ***UPDATE*** Not only 5 minutes later did the crashing restart again on springboard. Following up top once again, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU RESTORE DIRECTLY AFTER JAILBREAKING IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO SO TO AVOID FURTHER PROBLEMS.
