    There is an app that I want to get, but it won't sync because it's for 2.2.1 and I'm using 2.2 (jailbroken). I saw a guide somewhere before to enable you to install apps without the correct firmware but didn't really care for it at the time.

    I'll go ahead and state the obvious.

    Why not just update?

    Seriously?
    It's only $10, and the features IMO are well worth it.

    Well I'd have to restore it to a clean version then update it. I could update straight to a jailbroken version but then theres extra memory that is used (I'm running out).

    No...
    You wouldn't have to do anything (I think).
    All you have to press is the Update button and that's it. I think your ipod stays jailbroken. No need to sync or remove anything. It's just updating.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    And what do you mean by extra memory? I don't think any of this requires any extra memory.

    Unfortunately no. Every update requires you to completely restore to the new firmware. Removing all music and app content.

    But surely restoring from a backup and re-syncing can't be that trouble? Just imagine, in the time you'll be spending to find what you're looking for, you could have already been done upgrading, restoring and syncing.

    If you open the .ipa foe the app you can change the firmware. I think you should update though.
