When you think you have to restore, you probably don't.

    I wrote this short article to my blog...but I thought I'd post it here as well, because I constantly read about people here restoring over minor issues, and I thought people here could benefit from my experience.

    so here it is:

    What's the best way to back up the system files? Do you just use WinSCP to go in and copy and paste all the folders in the root directory?

    pretty much. certain files will not transfer, so I just stick to backing up the main system files and anything that might seem important later on.

    could you possibly upload your MultitouchSupport.framework file?

    i'm having the same problem as you.

    Do you happen to have either an unmodded perferences.app or General.plist inside that app?

    In all of my tweaking and deleting of files, i've made a serious serious mess of my ipod... but i've never had to restore.

    @aristotles; sorry, I don't want to upload these files. Contain personal info.
