    If it's a version below 2.0, you have an original iPod Touch, meaning you need to buy the update. As for backing it up, um plug it into iTunes and sync? That will back it up, or do you mean something else?

    You have to upgrade the software on your iPod to 2.0 software before apps from iTunes cAn be installed. When you upgrade your applications from your 1.1.4 jailbreak will be lost. There is no way to back them up because they will simply not run on 2.0 software. You can jailbreak 2.0 version iPod touches but they do not have the same applications.

    in itunes it gives me the option to update to 2.2..when I hit upgrade it says $9.99. Is there a free upgrade to 2.0?

    What would happen if i did a restore?

    Yes you can simply download a 2.0 online anywhere, search it

    And when you do a restore, you can shift+click and choose the firmware to restore to. If you don't do that, it will restore back to 1.1.4

    2.0 is not free for an iPod (only iPhone). Once you buy 2.0, you can get 2.1 and 2.2 for free.

    Just thought you might wanna know... downloading it "free" is not legal.

    Yes sorry I forgot to mention that, if you're downloading it free online, it's illegal. I've done it and it works just as if you purchased it.
