    Hi there, I got my iPT3G for Xmas and I know almost everything about current JB method (blackra1n), but last things I'm wondering about before JBing:

    1. Do I have to restore to 3.1.2 before JB, or I can just go and JB, even if I have some things (1000 songs, some videos)? I have 3.1.2 already.
    2. Will I lose my data after JB? I have like 1000 songs and few videos in there.
    3. I heard that you can't place songs into your iPT3G after JB, because iTunes can't sync. Is that true?
    4. After JB, is it safe to sync my apps, music, videos etc. with iTunes?
    5. Do I have to be connected to Wi-Fi when I'm JBing? Because I don't have Wi-Fi at home, but I can connect to my friend's Wi-Fi later.

    Thanks!

    1. Well for safety you right click on your iPod tab where there is your iPod name, because if you do when you restore afterwards you dont have to download the restore thingy from the net which is 200Mb and will quite take time to download it, when you back it up you dont have to download it back and just use the restore backup.

    2. Well if you do , you can just sync it back right

    Facepalm.

    I think a mod really needs to post a sticky about piracy. The discussion of piracy is not allowed here, consider this a warning.

    IMO i think it's really good if you have Wifi Around your house when you have your iPod Touch. I know because I got my router bout a couple weeks ago and before that I would always do a km jog to my Library and go on their wifi, then i always forget what I was going to download. Even though you Don't need Wifi, it's still really good to have.

    If you don't have Wifi and you want to use Cydia you can use Cyder.

    No you do not lose your songs(well it didnt happen to me) and you can still sync stuff from iTunes if you buy things from app store or wherever you get your songs and apps from
