    Is there a way to upgrade to 1.1.2 without losing all your music, vids, etc? The tutorials I've read all say that you'll lose all your info and you're basically starting from scratch.

    You don't lose your info, music, or movies. Just make sure you follow all the instructions to the letter- so don't 'restore' to 1.1.2 (which erases everything), you upgrade to 1.1.2.

    What does get deleted are the 3rd party and iPhone apps you've installed. But any stored data from those apps are retained. For example I re-installed MobileToDo and all my tasks were still there, and I re-installed the Books app and all my books were still there (it even still remembered where I was in different books.)

    My mail settings and stored emails were still there too, after I re-installed the Apple apps.

    People have posted tutorials and tips here, but the jailbreak files include pretty complete instructions.

    sucked for me because i did lose everything. at first i installed the oktoprep, then upgraded to 1.1.2. after it finished the upgrade i was stuck at the 'slide to unlock' screen with the little spinning circle thing in the middle constantly spinning and the ipod constantly making a clicking sound. i end up restoring to 1.1.1 which did erase everything. after the restore to 1.1.1 the rest if pretty simple and took about 20 minutes. now i just need to re-install everything.
