    I've had an iPod Touch for a while, and jailbroke it before 1.1.2 ever came out.

    Would it be worth the risk/hassle to restore the iPod (thus unjailbreaking), upgrade to 1.1.2, and re-jailbreak?

    I know 1.1.2 had the "Add New Event" thing to iCal but I have that anyway. But are there performance enhancements, bug fixes, etc., that I'm missing out on?

    Also a side question: restoring the iPod erases the music that's on it, right?

    I feel like it has been. It feels smoother, whereas it felt a bit jumpy when navigating the springboard before. It's not a terrible hassle if you have an hour or two to spare, but I'm really considering not upgrading to 1.1.3 when it comes out just because I have my iPod working how I want it to now.

    It does erase your music, but then you sync right back up and you're done. I found, interestingly, that my notes actually survived the upgrade. So that was nice.

    Good luck to you.

    You are half way there. If it is already jailbroken in 1.1.1, all you have to do is load octoprep from installer - then launch iTunes - upgrade to 1.1.2 and then run the jailbreak hack from http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/site/112jb.html

    You are done. And any setting for mail will stay. So do notes etc.

    Thanks both of you! I did it and it does indeed feel "snappier."

    Octoprep worked for me. Here's what I did (I'm on a Mac):

    - Install Octoprep on your iPod
    - Use iTunes to upgrade your iPod to 1.1.2
    - Eject your iPod but leave it plugged in
    - Close iTunes
    - Download the 1.1.2 jailbreak
    - Extract it to /tmp/
    - Double-click the jailbreak.jar file
    - It will launch and jailbreak your 1.1.2 iPod
    - Done!
