Hey I'm a new member to the forum so just wanted to introduce myself. In addition, I wanted some help in jailbreaking. I have jailbroken my Ipod Touch 1st gen to 3.0. I want to upgrade to 3.1.2 using blackra1n. But I'm hesitant because I have a lot of apps and settings downloaded on my ipod touch that I don't want to download all over again. The tutorial tells me that I must first use Itunes to upgrade to 3.1.2 and then use blackra1n to jailbreak it. (by the way, these apps aren't what you would call legal as I download off installous). Is there a way of backing these apps and all the cydia apps up before I jailbreak it? I don't think Itunes will back up my apps that I haven't downloaded from their store.
I'm planning on using the spirit jailbreak after I use blackra1n so that its not tethered.
