    ive bought a lot of games and applications from the apple app store and im still deliberating whether to take the plunge and actually jailbreak this machine. (ive got redsnow 0.3 alreday downloaded ready to go)

    im slightly worried that doing this jailbreaking thing will wipe whats already on my ipod touch or even stop certain things running.
    (i read something about setting/creating partitions during jailbreaking)

    can anyone help?

    You can just resync them when you are done

    Im not positive on that since I don't play games on it. If you back it up before you jailbreak it should be fine but I would double check with one of the gamers in here.

    well i just took the plunge and used redsnow to jailbreak my ipod touch 2g.

    after it worked its magic, everything that was on my ipod touch 2g is still on there.

    wonderful.
