goddam itunes makes me puke!!!

I have fortunately migrated away from my iPhone and now the proud owner of a Galaxy S, which is streets ahead and most importantly dont have to use iTunes anymore.


But......

Over time, the laptops that my missus iPhone and the 2 kids iPod touch were synced with are reformatted..... and once again faced with losing stuff off my Jaillbroken devices and upgrading the OS, which I dont want to do. I just want to add some new tracks. How simple can it be? Or more to the point, how complicated and difficult to use can they possibly make it?

OK... can some kind soul tell me what to do for the best so I dont lose the apps and current music and will be able to add more tracks, dont upgrade and remain jailbroken.

Thanks in advance (assuming it can be done ok for 4 devices in total!)

Google 'iphone ssh' and this will show you how you can see the file-sctructure of the iphone and enable you to copy files from it to your pC.
#2
Isn't there alternative programs for this like Ephpod.

Ephpod is aimed at the older ipods i think

For many years, EphPod has been one of the best free iPod backup and management tools. It still receives a lot of attention and downloads, and is used with many older iPods successfully. However, with the advent of the new signing that Apple imposes on its newer iPod Touch and iPhone devices, EphPod really isn't the best choice for your latest-and-greatest devices (defined here as any Apple iPod/iPhone released after 2006). I have put links on my downloads page to the other software that I think are the best iPod/iPhone management tools today. With them, you can copy and transfer your media to and from your iPod Touch and iPhones to your hard drive--just like EphPod does with older first and second generation iPod devices. The other great aspect of these tools is that they can help you manage your iPod and iPhone devices without needing iTunes.

Not got an iphone at the moment but googling found this...

"Transfer the files: I found my iPod touch's music nested deep inside the file structure, at /private/var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music/. You'll probably find your music there too. Copy all the folders named F01, F02, and so on to your computer. The files have nonsensical names, but they're really your tunes, and iTunes (and even Windows itself) knows it:

Once you've got your files, you can give them back sensible names in iTunes by importing them, then heading to Edit->Preferences->Advanced->"Keep iTunes Music folder organized." Now you've got your iPod's whole music library, organized, and ready to use wherever."

Cheers...... though its more hassle than its worth! (Its not just Tunes - but apps too - and all I want to do is add a couple of albums!)
