    By 'jailbreaked stuff", do you mean the tweaks and apps you installed, or their documents?

    That's your answer. You cannot update a jailbroken iPod touch without losing the jailbroken stuff. When you update, it removes the jailbreak. The jailbroken stuff only works with a jailbroken iPod.

    You can use aptbackup to make a list of tweaks and Cydia apps that you installed, then backup your device in iTunes, upgrade, restore it from your backup, rejailbreak it, reinstall aptbackup and press restore (or something like that). This will only re-download the packages that you installed, so you won't get your files. Cracked apps go over to iTunes automatically because of Appsync, you just need to install it to transfer them back to your device.

    Also, what 2g model do you have?

    Your purchases go over to iTunes automatically, and the saves are saved when you make a backup of your device (which, unless you disabled it, happens automatically)
