How can you restore a jailbroken ipod touch without deleting the data?
Its not possible to restore without deleting data..
Restoring the iPhone will erase everything on it, so make sure everything on the iPhone is backed up prior to restoring.

Jailbroken iPod Touch stuck on recovery mode. I can't restore it with iTunes or reboot it like normal.?
try putting it in duf mode.( if it doesnt make a sound on your computer then you have to time it.) if u dnt know how to do it. hold the top and bottem butten Dow for 10 secs then let go of the bottom one till u here a sound on ur computer Edit: my answer. This does work (for me at least..) becau…se I had this exact problem (jailbroken iPod touch stuck on recovery mode screen) and I just kept experimenting to fix it. You're going to need a different computer with the latest iTunes installed. Simple turn on iTunes, plug in your iPod touch with the new computer and it should say that iTunes has found an iPod in recovery mode. Press ok and click 'restore'. Then just go through the rest and you'll be downloading the latest firmware for you iPod Touch. Hope this helps you and other people with this problem. Edit: if that doesn't work then trick your iPod touch! How? by doing this: 1. launch blackra1n or download it 2. "click make it ra1n" 3.let it shut your iPod touch off 4.then while it says "running" turn your iPod touch on rapidly...... 5. slide or put in passcode if needed then enjoy your iPod :) OR HOLD SLEEP AND HOME FOR ABOUT 30, MORE LIKELY THAT THE IPOD IS GOING TO TURN OFF BEFORE 30 SECS (MORE)
I would suggest bringing it to the place you got it from or an iPod retail and services store for more help.
A jailbroken iPod touch is basically like hacking it. You can personalize your homescreen with a wide selection of themes and you can also get apps that cost money for free by downloading a package from the software that automatically installs when you jailbreak your ipod touch. I have jailbroken my… iPod touch and i ersonally think it looks much better than it was when i got it :P. If you have any questions or if you want me to give you the link to jailbreak your ipod and if you choose for me to send you the link i will tell you a step-by-step guide to getting the package for free apps and how to get themes just tell me :) !

A jailbroken iPod Touch is certainly legal. However, the act of getting every app in the App Store for free (the ones that require payment) is illegal.
1. Go to settings 2. Hit "General" 3. Scroll all the way down until you see "reset" 4. Hit "Reset" 5. Hit "Erase all Contents and Settings"
It wont just jailbreak by itself you must do it and if you simply google search "jailbreak ipod" there will be plunty of sites that tell you how to do so and the signs that it is broken.
Connect your iTouch to your computer and click "Restore iPod" and it will erase everything on your iTouch.
It sets your ipod back to factory mode which basically resets everything on your ipod so if i wanted to keep my things i would sync all my apps, movies, music, contacts etc to itunes
yes it can but it is only semi so when you turn it off you need a computer to turn it back on
Yes you can. You just have to plug it in like you would normally would and that's it
Most of the time if you go to the "general" and the "about" you'll be able to tell.
As some people have found to their cost not only is possible to jailbreak ( remove all safety features from Apple on the iPod) the iPod it is also possible to find out how many viruses do run on an iPod
Yes, but it will erase everything on the iPod, including things available only to jailbroken iDevices, such as Cydia, Winterboard, etc. You can then put all NON-jailbroken media back on the iPod by using a backup file of the iPod which is saved on iTunes.
Well for any iPod you could plug it into your computer and when it comes up go to summary and click "Restore" it will be under "Update" But if you don't have that computer with you, on your iPod touch, go to settings, then go to General, then go to Passcode Lock, then enter a/your Passcode, and sw…itch on erase data. Then lock it and keep entering the wrong Passcode (this may take hours to get it to START restoring) 10 times. Then when you have it restored connect it to iTunes and their you have it. But i would do the 1st on said because it is ALOT quicker and easier. (MORE)
if its already jailbroken than you will need to unjailbreak it (take the jailbreak off) then when its normal ;go to itunes go to and click update and cancel it because it will erase every thing than push shift+restore and it will update .then when its done install your jailbreak program:blackra1n,…redsn0w,etc. (MORE)
Your answer: no (tentative) meaning no UNLESS you screw something up, really bad, so if you can do it without getting any serious errors then you should be fine, but any SERIOUS errors (not like they happen often unless you have no idea what you're doing) and you'll have to do a full restore from iT…unes, which WILL erase all of your apps, settings, etc. SO your answer (in short form) is this: No, unless you're really really stupid. (MORE)
Yes. But if it is tethered, you will have to use the program you jailbroke it with to reboot it. This will not erase anything on your iTouch.
No, it is not bad if you have a jailbroken iPod Touch. Jailbreaking an iPod Touch is just a way to access personalization settings that are not normally available for an iPod Touch. Jailbreaking is fine, to a certain extent, though. What is bad, though, is using the jailbreaking to download apps t…hat cost money for free. (MORE)
Yes depending on its software version. If it's 3.1.0 or under you should be fine. If not its easy to downgrade.
Now that hackulo.us is down, installous can not be downloaded from cydia, but you can get it from other places. There are some bugs for older ipods, but other than that, there is no way currently
Yes it will, but I don't know if it will delete the info on the apps.
No. Jailbreaking an iPod Touch voids your warranty. If you send them the device anyway Apple will be able to detect that you have jailbroken your device and refuse to repair it. Wrong, jailbreaking an ipod touch became legal a long time ago... and with my research i can prove that if apple refuse…s to fix it, you can sue them and you will most likely win. sooo yeah that doesnt ruin ur warrenty (MORE)
Restoring an iPod should reinstate the warranty to a jailbroken iPod, unless a problem occurs during restoration, then the warranty isn't in effect since you are trying to restore a jailbroken iPod.
On sites such as eBay and CraigsList, there are some people who sell jailbroken iPod Touches. You cannot get a jailbroken iPod Touch from a regular retailer, but you can jailbreak an iPod using various other sites (links will not be posted because jailbreaking can allow downloading of all apps for f…ree, which is illegal, and WikiAnswers will not aid in criminal activity). (MORE)
No if you save your Ipod apps and music none of your app data will be lost.
Restoring your iPod is like pressing the giant reset button. Restoring will completely wipe out everything from your iPod. You will lose all data from your iPod when restoring it.
Yes, if you restore your iPod or iPhone on iTunes it will delete Cydia. The restore function on iTunes restores your iPod or iPhone to its previous settings.
Of course! In iTunes just uncheck the song and it won't sync to your ipod touch unless you tell it to sync your entire iTunes library. It's that simple. Hope this helped :)
Well, if it can't restore then just go to the store you got it from and have them fix it or exchange for a new one.
i have the same problem, but i have come across a few methods that work for other people(except me). Maybe these will help: 1. You can force reboot your ipod (hold down power and home button for 5 secs) every 5 minutesfor about 45 minutes straight. 2. You can plug you ipod into itunes, force reboot… it, and wait wait 15 minutes for the ipod to be recognized. 3. If ythere is an update avaiable, then update it . THis will remove any jailbroken software, but i do not believe it will remove cracked apps or free music as long as it is in the proper library. (MORE)
No. Edit: If you mean pirated apps, no, just transfer your purchases to iTunes If you mean apps downloaded off cydia, yes they will be deleted.
If you have iiOS 5, then you can go into your settings and erase all content and settings from there you can restore to an iCloud backup
yes it can but not if you go and download the new update because then it will give your ipod touch some minor glitches which include crashing and not turing on for a couple of minutes
Thanks for Taking An Intrest In Pokemon For The iPod I Am Currently Developing An Application Which Will Be Approved By Apple INC As It Does Not Break Any Of There Terms Of Service Which Will Bring Every Pokemon Game To The iPod Touch 2G + & iPhone 3 + Also You Will Notice You Will See A Change In P…okemons Names That Is Because I Have To Change Them & Therefore It Makes It My Own Game But For Now You Can Get It By Jailbreaking In Cydia For Free With 3 Programs ($4.99 Usually).

Is there a calling and or texting app for jailbroken or non jailbroken ipod touch that works without WiFi?
Sending messages to people on the network requires being connected to a network. If you want to use the cellphone network instead of WiFi, then you will need to get a phone.
It shouldn't but I think that it's better to sync or back up an iPod first just in case something goes wrong
cause jailbraking breaks i pods the only way to charge it is put it in dfu made or get a wall charger
you download iLiberty+ from theiphoneproject site and connect the iPod to the computer. If the selection "Jailbreak" is grayed out, then it is.
there are 2 ways one way is that if you already have all your apps synced on itunes then no problem or the best way, that you download ifunbox (search for it on Google) and it is an ultimate iPod/iPhone filemanager. just copy paste all your files to the CPU :D hope it'll work P.s I haven…t tried the first option so best if you try the second option (MORE)
There are several ways. 1. Download a Cydia tweak called MyOS. 2. Put into the system files. This also allows you to use it when in same mode. You have to edit the file /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N72AP.plist You do this in iFile. You use the text viewer. Scroll down until you… see that it says capabilities. You then add homescreen-wallpaper and then it gives you a homescreen wallpaper no matter what. Do the same for multitasking. Just instead of homescreen-wallpaper, put multitasking. Must be in all lower case to work. (MORE)
I don't now a other way to get cydia of but the only way I know how to take cydia of is to restore your iPod touch
How do you delete music on jailbroken iPod touch without iTunes. I can't connect it with iTunes or it will delete all of my apps I have. If you have a solution for either it would be appreciated.?
You right click on where it says " name iPod" and then click on transfer purchases you have to keep doing it because it only does one app at a time. If you go up to file and click on transfer purchases it won't work you have to do it the iPod way and if u want to transfer all your songs get media wi…dget or touch 11 and it will transfer it to iTunes automatically. You can't delete it on the iPod yet even if it is jailbroken but the fifth generation you can which should come out in October 2011 or soon. (MORE)
Try holding the Home (bottom button, the circle) and the Power (the one of the top) for 10 seconds to restart it. If that doesn't work, you will have to restore :( or you can use ibooty from ih8sn0w set your idevice on dfu then run it. it will look like restore but is not.
well you can go on answers.com and ask i bet they would give you the answer or you can do what i did and just guess it worked for me after the second try.
Swipe left on the right side of the song name and a delete icon should appear
Go to software update after plugging in itouch and tapping it's name. Then do software update. Most updates don't delete anything.
