    The other day I recieved an iTouch from my brother which he had jailbroken. I've read several places that to unjailbreak it I simply have to restore it in iTunes. If it hasn't been backed up before though, will it delete all the media and apps as well as any jailbreak-related tweaks or apps? Or just the jailbroken things?
    Thanks a lot!

    If you restore it, it will wipe out all the data from the iPod touch and you can set it up as if it is new.

    Restoring will remove everything. If you choose to load a backup post-restore, there is a small chance some jailbreak tweak remnants will be loaded back on. Nothing huge most likely, but don't restore from backup if you don't want them.
