    Today I plugged my phone into my mac and itunes and did the update. The phone crashed upon install update. I lost all my contacts. Anyone else have this issue?

    pretty sure you can't update a modded iPhone.
    I restored to version 1.0 before I applied the update.
    I heard from a few people that the verify software pass during the update process causes problems with modded iPhones.

    You do know that iTunes keeps backups, yes?

    You can update from a modded phone. It takes longer but you can. It doesn't do anything to the phone. Only down fall is that you can't mod until someone comes out with a new iPhoneInterface.
