    Default 2.1 to 2.2 update w/ yellowsn0w?
    Hello everyone!

    I am currently using an iPhone 3g 8gb on the T-Mobile network using a gevey-3g turbo sim.

    I would like to update to the latest 2.2 firmware and download yellowsn0w via Cydia and take out my turbo sim, but I don't want to clear all my data (photos/contacts/music/apps)

    How would I do this? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks ahead!

    Update in itunes to 2.2 which will keep your photos/contacts/music/appstore apps but break your jailbreak. Use quickpwn which will not affect your photos/contacts/music/appstore apps to rejailbreak. In cydia install yellowsn0w and voila! Enjoy

    ^ Do I just download quickpwn22.zip from dev-team?

    Any other instructions? Thanks ahead!

    I think QuickPWN does also.. I would just back it up. Or sync all your contacts and stuff with itunes before the update.

    Quick question, I am viewing instructions from iClarified.com.

    When I rejailbreak again with quickpwn, do I need to add Cydia & Installer again? Or can I uncheck those options?

    Yes, keep them checked. The update will wipe them out.

    Thanks so much for your help Stealth.

    I just did a fresh install, restored to 2.2 using itunes and jailbreak with quickpwn. Installed yellowsn0w and 5bars on t-mobile network.

    Incoming/Outgoing/SMS works perfect.
