    I copied both folders that supposedly hold the save data onto my computer, then experimentally deleted 2 of the .app applications (Dizzy Bee and Enigmo), and replaced them with .ipa's using iTunes.
    Once I copied the folders back onto my iPod, the games still showed that there were no records.

    Are you just putting the documents folders back where they were before? Because that would do nothing. When you do the ipa method every app has its own documents folder within its sandbox. So you need to put the save files in each apps own documents folder. Since you used the app method for some reason though, you're not going to have any idea which save file goes to which game.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.
