    I'm thinking about jailbreaking but I have a 32GB 2nd Generation iPod Touch with about 11 or 12 gigs filled. How should I go about backing them up to my external hard drive & then once my jailbreak process is done, I can put them back onto my ipod. I'm talking about my music & movies, which most are not on my computer anymore due to me having a lack of space so I deleted them & then like a week or 2 later decided to get a 1TB external hard drive. I am using Windows XP if that matters at all. I have read tuts on how to jailbreak & I don't need to know how to jailbreak, that process I got. I just need a little bit of help to backup my music & movies that are on my ipod now.

    Google on how to get music and stuff off your iPod... I think you google "iPod to pc" or something like that... Jailbreaking doesn't remove Dara from your iPod... If your on 3.1.2 u can use blackra1n if u need any more info just ask

    So I don't need to backup my files??? I can just use blackr1an to jailbreak my ipod & that's it??? Is that what you're saying or do I have to do a backup like I thought, cuz if I can jailbreak my ipod without losing my files that would be good. And yes I'm running on 3.1.2.

    Don't freak out. Its going to be ok.

    So what you're asking is "If I jailbreak my iPod with Blackra1n, will I lose everything on my iPod?"

    And my response would be no. Blackra1n doesn't delete anything on your iPod; it puts your iPod in Restore Mode, then pulls it out when its finished.

    However, the easiest way to backup your music/media/etc. is to sync with iTunes. iTunes will backup your things periodically.

    Use Sharepod for getting back the music.

    iTunes doesnt backup music and movies, only small things like contacts, app data, etc.
