    I jailbroke my friend's iPod Touch 2g 3.0 a while ago, but he wants it back to normal now, so anway, I know I can just restore (to 3.1.2), but I think he has a lot of contacts, notes, calender, game high scores etc. So how would I go about preserving all of that? Should I let iTunes back it up and then restore from backup? Because I've read its bad to restore a non-JB iPhone/iPod Touch from a backup that was made when it was jailbroken. I don't really mind if a there's a bit of memory wasted, he has the 16 GB model. Or is there another way? Thanks!

    If you just do a stock update, it won't overwrite any contacts, game saves, etc. It will get rid of the jailbreak though. If he wants to stay at 3.0, you should be able to download the 3.0 firmware, then Shift+Update and select the 3.0 firmware to install. I know the shift+Update works to "reverse jailbreak" on 3.1.2. 3.0 should work just fine on a 2G Touch since it's easy to make the phone take whatever firmware you want it to. The only problem is it leaves you with a large amount of wasted space on your ipod marked as "Other".

    Looking at iErase: Zero Free Space
    seems like if you did this method and did end up with this wasted space then maybe this app would fix the wasted space.
    Not sure though. If you try it please post back the results.
    good luck.
