    I jailbreaked my iphone firmware 2.2 thanks to the help from people on this forum, and now i am thinking about updating to 2.2.1 and jailbreak it. I have some questions before i make the transition.

    1) will i lose all my game save files? after i do the update and jailbreak it with a custom firmware, which i assume wipe out the whole OS and install a custome one.

    2) will I have to copy back all my itune musics back into my iphone again? I disable music sync in itune since I like to copy them manually myself.

    thanks for the help in advance. you guys are the best.

    Here's the skinny. If you sync your phone with iTunes prior to upgrading/jb'ing/etc, after you get to 2.2.1 and working. When you connect again, iTunes will ask if you want to set up as a new phone, or restore from a prior backup. For me, that backup has always contained all user data (App Data, contacts, sms's, game plays, etc, etc, etc) I've never lost a thing telling iTunes to use an existing backup to set up this 'new phone'.

    This does not apply to Cydia apps.
    Also, because you manually sync music --- you're on you own to put back.

    Remember, after going to 2.2.1 and jb'ing .... your phone is factory fresh.

    But .... no guarantees here. Your mileage may vary

    Last comment: I concur --- Stay with 2.2 . Nothing special in 2.2.1
