    Hey, I just jailbroke my ipod Touch 2g and iTunes is asking me if I want to "Restore from the backup of my iPod".

    I pretty sure this is just adding everything back onto my iPod as it's telling me the last time I synced my iPod.

    Im wondering if I should do this or will it mess up my jailbreak?

    If I don't do this should I set it up as a new iPod manually synch enverything onto the iPod?

    It very well may work but I always like to restore as new to get rid of all the old junk

    So just set up as a new iPod?

    Will this make me lose all of my app data? Or is that saved in iTunes?

    Thanks for the help so far.

    All your apps and all are saved in iTunes. You just need to resync them. You ca restore from old but sometimes some old prefs and stuff get moved over and mess things up
