    Before I move from my jailbroken 3.0 to jailbroken 4.0, I was hoping I could get the answers to a few questions. I currently have a jailbroken ipod touch 2g and have quite a few apps that have saved data on them, with routines and similar data. If I jailbreak, will I lose the data I have on those apps? Hopefully someone can help me with this, so I can make my final decision about going to 4.0.
    Thanks!

    If they're Cydia/Rock apps, it depends on whether the data's saved in a plist in the Library folder, or somewhere else. If it's in the app folder... the data's gone. If it's from the App Store, it'll back up in iTunes unless you delete the files from the device.
