    I know this has probably been asked before, but I don't know if anything has changed recently. If I sync my iPod to iTunes, what will happen? Mine is an iPod 4 running iOS 5.0.1 (Now jailbroken). What happens if I let iTunes sync my iPod? Will the jailbroken be undone?

    Will I lose all my progress and save data for my apps and games? Can it brick my iPod?

    You can sync normally, and nothing unexpected will happen

    You can sync normally without any risk of anything bad happening.

    The Apps tab gets a little derpy if you have any homescreen icon-tweaking things installed, but other than that everything works fine.

    Nothing haappens to any game saves, cydia tweak, themes and apps etc. Whats cool though, is if you have a theme, go to the app section nder you iDevice name, it shows the theme

    Thanks, now I can use iTunes with confidence again. lol

    I have been nervous about connecting my iPod to my computer ever since I jailbroke.

    I jailbroke originally so that I could use DataDeposit. I wanted to be able to delete apps to free up memory, and them redownload them again and restore my saves when I wanted to play again.

    DataDeposit is pretty cool. Poke around in Cydia, you can do SO much when you're jailbroken, it's amazing!!
    Again.

    So, can someone fill me in on the capabilities of a Jailbroken iPod? I'm still trying to decide if I want to stay jailbroken, or revert. The ability to save my save data to my computer is pretty great though. Why couldn't Apple think to do that?
