    ok so i got my 32gb ipod touch on my bday:) and jailbroke it the next day.i am looking for cydia/rock apps that are good so can you help me find some:)i have backgrounder and i have [Redacted] and i have winterboard and a few others. and i have a few more questions, rock backs up your apps,so does it back up the cydia ones as well as the rock? if i sync my ipod to my pc then will all my cydia and cracked apps leave?if i have appsync on it will sync just the cracked ones right?can apple tell what you sync with your pc?will they know or just think you bought them? and i synced my ipod after jailbreaking and cydia stayed.is that normal?and if i wanted to upgrade so i can have 4.0.1 will i have to back up everything i want to keep? thanks for all your help:)

    Rock and Cydia are compatible with each other (they can install most of the same apps), so yes, Rock would back up Cydia apps.

    Syncing is not affected; sync all you want with iTunes! When you sync with iTunes, only App Store apps get synced to your computer. Apple could technically have iTunes report back on if you have cracked apps or not, but they don't.

    Lastly, 4.0.1 is not available for iPod touch, just for iPhones. You must mean iOS 4.0. [​IMG] I recommend performing a full-blown restore to 4.0; 4.0 can be a bit quirky when updating, especially so if it's being updated from a jailbroken setup. Perform a backup of everything you want to keep.

    Ahh... Now this is why I decided to not jailbreak my iPod. It makes you kind of paranoid with questions so that your iPod doesn't break itself. So confusing...

    Anyway, I dunno the answers to your questions, but I'm just saying.

    Wait for it to be updated so it's 4.x-compliant, just like all other apps. Or you can look for an already-compliant app that works the same.

    I would suppose so, but I always do fresh installs when I update which is not frequently at all. It helps me eliminate any clutter I may have accumulated.

    Thanks:)I had just jailbroke a week before jailbreakme 2.0 came out.and the reason they always delete when you sync is because you don't have appsync on.turn it on inside of instalous.

    He could set double-pressing the Home button to do something else (like opening SBSettings) via Activator.
