    Before anything, I'm sorry to post another thread about jailbreaking with 3.0.​


    Okay....

    I wanna update to 3.0, then Jailbreak it. But is this possible so that I won't lose all my Game Data stuff?

    E.g. Once i've jailbroken my iPod Touch 1st Gen on my Mac, I won't lose, for example... all my Assassin's Creed Data.​

    Possible? If so, How? Or will Pwnage Tool Update without resroring by it's self?​

    Connect you iPod to itunes. It will save all your saved games and such stuff (takes about 10 min.). Then update.

    (I just updated and OS 3.0 Roxx!

    lol... okay.

    so just to clarify.

    I am on 2.2.1 right now, i can update to 3.0, then jailbreak the 3.0 on my Mac, then sync all my apps back on, and no game data will be lost?

    thanks... because i thought u had to restore when you jailbreak with the custom firmware.

    1. Go to cydia and download AppBackup;
    2. Open the application and backup all your app's data (may look like it freezes but its just taking quite a while, be patient it took me 10 mins);
    3. SSH into your iPod and download all the files in:
    4. After updating to 3.0 and jailbreaking, redownload appbackup and download openssh if not installed;
    5. Install your apps;
    6. Upload the tar files you had on your computer to the iPod touch, to the same path:
    7. Open AppBackup -> All -> Restore
    8. Party like it's 1999.

    I personaly trust this method more because iTunes does it all behind the scenes.
