    hey guys,
    i got my first ipod touch 2g a couple of days ago and i love it! i jailbroke it to 2.2.1, and it truly is awesome.
    one not so awesome thing... the battery life.
    if i'm on games/apps with a full charge i get about 1-1.5 hours out of my ipod, which for the price i paid isn't acceptable..
    should i take it back to the store for an exchange?
    if so, how can i back up my whole ipod before restoring to factory settings, including my cydia apps and everything.
    thanks people!

    The battery's life is normal, the iPod was made for MUSIC and not for games..
    Anyways, the battery's life is better in OS 3.0 so I suggest you to upgrade to OS 3.0.
    You cannot back up Cydia Applications.
    Whenever you connect your iPod to your PC / MAC, the iTunes says something like:
    "Backing up your iPod Touch"
    Basically, that means that every time you connect your iPod, you also back it up.
    When you restore, your applications and music and etc will be deleted, but when you restore from back up, all your settings will be saved (for example: wifi, game saves and etc..).
    I hope I helped.

    Also, what is very important on any new electronic is that you run the battery down completely all the way, then you completely charge it fully. Then use it all the way down so there is no battery then charge it all the way up. What this does it allows the battery to get a complete charge, basically a "memory". It helps with battery life and also increase its overall life slightly. You may also want to do this maybe once month or so too.
    Whether an ipod, or laptop.. anything with a rechargeable battery, you do this to the battery.

    I found a big boost in battery life, especially when using Wi-Fi.

    Most (keyword: most) applications should work fine on 3.0.
