    I believe Blackra1n RC2 fixed te issue with Icy, but download Icy? Cydia is enough for me...

    up grade it to 3.1.2 and jailbreak it with blackra1n that would be my guess when u use blackra1n u dont have to restore so u wont loose your apps and such.

    1. I don't own a touch so I don't understand what you mean by this???
    2. you will have to rebuy the stuff if you haven't synced them to the computer, I did this once with one song so I know. If you have alot of songs you might want to contact Apple because they do have the record that you bought the songs so they may be able to do something for you. If you need your apps just go into the store and get it again it will tell you that you've already purchased the app do you want to download it again.
    3. I believe someone responded if you use blackra1n you wont have to restore, I haven't used it so I can't say
    4. You can prevent screwing up the JB by knowing all the steps to the method, make sure you have all the software and files you need and watch a couple videos on the process
