    All your game progress would be lost, but yes.

    Ok, firstly, try and wait til third gen comes out. Think more RAM, better processor and possibly a camera. Secondly, to keep app progress, in iTunes, right click on the iPod in the device listings and select back up, the when you get your new one, restore it with this backup. It will then be exactly the same. Thirdly, restore your old iPod to original 2.2.1 firmware and then sell it.
    Hope this helped.

    yeah i was gonna wait till 3.0 comes out and then get my new ipod touch when they come with the software on it. one thing though. What will restoring it to 2.2.1 do? does it just wipe all my games and data etc?

    All the same apps would work but you would loose save data on those apps.
    Wait for the new ipod touch 3rd gen in a couple of weeks

    Hardware improvements for sure (most likely though).
    Best guess though. There's more but that's all I can think of now.

    No, I switched iPods. 16 gb to 8 gb. Game data, even notes were saved.

    yeah just like if you jailbreak, BACKUP. then restore you NEW iPod (seriously wait til 3rd gen tho, possible camera, inbuilt mic, faster hardware, and other unknown improvements - IMPROVEMENTS, so wait, that's what I'd do.)
    when an iPod is restored to a backup (if all the files are on the computer) it will load them all back on, including apps and their saved state. After I jailbroke, I still had a game of Lock 'n' Roll going, and this was on a new firmware (2.2.1 from 2.2) so it's safe to do..
    if you restore you OLD iPod to 2.2.1, or 3.0 when it's out with 3rd gen iPod touch, it will wipe everything. just don't sync with your computer, leave that to the buyer. If it's a mate, give him all your games - even if it's synced with your iTunes account, you still need to know the password to dl stuff.
