    Hi, I have a jailbroken iPod touch 4g and am thinking whether to update or not. I have a 25.0 GB data cap and the frequent updates are really eating into it. I hope that someone can list all the small or big changes, such as bug fixes or changes in battery life, (other than the location services) that makes it worth downloading. Currently, I edited the hosts file so that my iPod will not update. And I just jailbroke it so I don't really know how much work an update will cause to rejailbreak so I am quite reluctant. Thanks.

    I'm in the same situation. I have a shed load of plist hacks that need to be redone if I update. Battery life improvements are the only incentive. From what I've heard there may be minor improvements. Nothing conclusive yet.

    There's really no major reason to upgrade if you have an iPod touch. The update was mainly geared towards iPhone and iPad users because of the location tracking issues.

    Thank you for your quick replies. Now, my restore file has been put into the recycle bin (yes, I am using a lousy PC). Does that mean I cannot restore if something goes wrong when hacking the .plist files unless I download the update? I have added the gs.apple.com to the hosts file. Thank you.

    Well, I really think that's not necessary to update to 4.3.3. Just fix some bugs and leak pravicy

    I updated. No difference to performance or battery life (battery life was good anyway). Still has the same glitches as 4.3.2, ie. Choppy or missing animations
