    I believe it is a requirement that you must be on original 2.2.1 firmware in order to jailbreak using the Rednsn0w method, if so yes. But, this is why you back up your iPod before you go restoring it back to 2.2.1.

    I may need a confirmation on this, but I do not think it deletes anything since it doesn't go through a restoring phase in the jailbreak process. But, you'll lose it all install the 2.2.1 firmware. I'd just make sure all of your media is backed up so you can transfer it back after the restoration/jailbreak is complete.

    Redsn0w will mess up your installed packages in Cydia.

    You will just have to go through and then add them again, but it won't reinstall them, just gets them noticed in Cydia correctly as installed packages.

    How do I backup my files? And after I do, will I get EVERYTHING back? ( Cydia Data, Apps, etc...)
