    So I bought my touch about a week ago, stored some music on it and then updated it to 2.0. Everything got formatted and I had to re-do everything I just did. My question is that even for a small update like 2.0.1, will it still format the iPod?

    I know it's a newbish question, i'm still learning

    From what I know...yes. I upgraded from jailbroken 1.1.3 I think to 2.0.1 and it DID format. So yes.

    It won't if you're upgrading from 2.0, but you will lose your jailbroken applications, obviously.

    no upgrading from 2.0 to 2.0.1 will not delete everything
    the only thing it will get rid of is all the jail broken stuff

    I went from a pwned 2.0 to a clean 2.01 and only lost the jb apps. Everything else was still there exactly where I had them.
