    soz if this is in the wrong section btw.

    i have jailbroken with blackra1n and it works fine. the only problem is that it is tethered. is there a way to switch jailbreaks to one that is untethered without losing my apps and the save data for my games? my ipod touch is a 2g 8GB (MC model) 3.1.2

    You have no choice, you have to restore if you want to use spirit. SSH into your ipod and copy the apps folder.

    so if i copy the apps folder and then put it back on after a restore, will it still have all of the save files?

    EDIT: i found where all the apps are installed (var/mobile/applications), if i save those and then put them back in the same directory once it is restored, will everything still be there? (would i have to respring?)

    Yes that will work out fine but you will have to redownload the applications you have downloaded off cydia because im NOT sure how to back those up. Check for tutorials

    Download Rock, they let you back up the files you downloaded off Cydia.
