    Chances are they won't bother, BUT, if you want your iPod to be as Apple intended it, you have to restore it. If you update, you WILL lose almost 1 GB of room, which is the partition Cydia creates when installed.

    Have a g'day.

    I would restore it first, even if it wasn't jailbroken. Just make sure you do a complete backup.
