    hi guys awesome forum here and i'm glad to say i'm a proud owner of a new 32 gb iPod touch 3g,i have been following jailbreaking for a while now and know about the whole greenpoison situation
    my question is if it did get released or if i do a tethered jailbreaking now, do i lose all my data and stuff onto it?

    1. Greenpois0n may not be untethered. It shoudl be said again that the Dev Team and others have categorically stated that no one has as yet exploited teh new boot rom.

    2. If you need to re-jailbreak your iDevice then you will need to restore to a new or custom OS first and so you will lose your data and stuff. Do manual back ups first.

    If the OP has a 32GB 3rd gen iPod touch running firmware 3.1.3 there is no Jailbreak currently, tethered or untethered. Or did I miss something in the past 10 minutes I should be made aware of?

    If the 32GB iPod touch you got (speaking to geeza23) has 3.1.2 on it out of the box, a tethered Jailbreak is possible using blackra1n - so don't update to 3.1.3 if it's got 3.1.2 on it out of the box...

    Nobody working on the Jailbreak would probably come forth with that info, but... considering how blackra1n works, it's entirely possible that you could do a JB on 3.1.3 at some point and it just modifies what's necessary without requiring a total wipe of the device.

    Until such a JB is released, we'll just have to wait.

    I'd guess most people that back up their devices use iTunes; I'm not aware of anything else that actually works in terms of a device backup except that.

    I was answering his direct question br0adband, not discussing whether he could jailbreak his device currently, which he didn't ask anyway... your unnecessary sarcasm wasn't appropriate. meh...
