      If you use aptbackup you can save al data on cydia then backup with itunes, upgrade firmware then jailbreak again, add bossprefs, five icon dock, ssh(if you had these apps from cydia), then restore from your backup on itunes, and finally install aptbackup and run restore...
      Best way I know to upgrade so far

      If you have a 3G iPhone and used yellowsn0w you are now stuffed. A piigyback SIM is the only option until FW3.0 is officially released and cracked.

      It did upgrade the baseband, your only option is to use a piggy back type sim adapter like a turbo sim. You can not downgrade your baseband.

      Jailbrake with TurboSIM in to bypass activation.

      He meant to say, insert your TURBOSIM, then jailbreak the phone to bypass the activation.

      a TurboSim is an extra piece of hardware those goes against your sim card in the sim tray. It's not a program. There are no software unlocks for the newest 3g baseband that came with 2.2.1.

      Sorry.

      Winpwn doesn't support 2.2.1 The main jailbreak app is Quickpwn (Windows) or Pwnage (Mac)

      Try using one of those.

      Download them at QuickPWN

      Ok it seemed that it worked... the jailbreak part... now my turbo sim does not seem to work... but at least i can use the phone like ipod until the new firmware comes out..
      P.S: it wasnt working before because i was using an older version of QuickPwn...

      I would recommend you DO use an'older' version - the quickpwn web address is unofficial and NOT quickpwn from the Dev Team. It is Beta written by a Russian programmer and I wouldn't go anywhere near it.
      The official version ios in the download section here ad Modmyi.
      Different 'piggyback' SIMSs work on different networks so if yours doesn't work by a new one off eBay from someone who guarantees it will work with your BB on your network.

      He's referring to the "new" jailbreak software for iphone 3.0 beta 2. It is not approved by the Dev team.

      That's what I thought.... Confucious confused me

      No confusion.
      www.quickpwm.com is NOT owned by the Dev Team. If you must visit that site I suggest you click on the 'About Us' button before getting the hell out of there.
      There you will see
      This website is not associated with the iPhone Dev Team ( a famous group of iPhone hackers). The QuickPWN jailbreaking software was developed by the iPhone Dev Team and poorlad.
      This site is not to be trusted and you will lose all chance of using yellowsn0w and many other things if you use their poorly hacked software.
