    hi guys, im fairly new to the iPod jailbreaking scene, and I have a question

    does jailbreaking cause your iPod to lose its device identifier? i have games, like iMafia, that rely on this id to track my accont, as there is no login name or password. will my status in these games be safe if i jailbreak?

    Nope.

    Just make sure to use a NOR jailbreak. The file is only around 30mb in size and will not delete any previous data.

    A NOR-only restore does not touch your filesystem (i.e. your data such as music and apps are not deleted), and I suggest you use redtool, it is being actively developed and has support

    a NOR Flash is only helpful if he has already tethered his iPod though...

    Yes, it does delete all of your apps and Media, but it backs up your settings, contacts, dates, etc.
    Just resync your music, videos, apps, and your iMafia should be fine, since it's an online game, it's not saved on your iPod, but the apps that are saved onto your iPod won't be saved.

    Okay, but you have to do a full restore for the jailbreak then, since you're not tethered yet.
