    It's up! I'm downloading now, but given all the problems that iPod touch users are having (wifi, eg), I'm going to wait until someone braver than I to report back on their experience before I pull the trigger.

    Well mine is sloooooowly backing up right now.

    I'd recommend a clean restore. It's a pain..yes. But a fix this big, it's better to just start clean.. Faster too since you do no backup first. Might even be important enough for its own thread..do a clean install for best results..lol
