    Default need help with updating with new pc
    ok so i asked here before about getting a new pc and switching over to the new pc and the steps i had to take to re-jailbreak and i did.

    now here's my issue. the new pc i had that i transferred over all my info from my old pc, i upgraded to windows 7 and i did a fresh install. and i lost everything on my new pc. plus i dont have my old pc anymore.

    so how in the world can i update my iphone without losing all my info thats stored in there? i've never synced my phone on my pc. so all my contacts arent in there. im on a 3g iphone and im still on version 3.0.

    Sync your phone first so all that info does get stored on the new pc

    so if i sync without having done any type of jailbreak on the pc it wont do anything to my current jailbreak?

    and also, how do i get my contacts up and running on my new pc? i think i had to create a random contact in the windows contacts and then it should import all my contacts to the pc correct?

    and thanks for your help

    No it won't do anything to your jailbreak. Just tell iTunes to sync contacts to outlook, windows card space or whatever you want, and it will save them there.

    awesome thanks for the help i'll go try it now. then once i do that, do i have to restore to factory and then upgrade to 3.1.3 and then re-jailbreak?

    If your phone is already jailbroken and your not worried about upgrading right now then no there's no need to rejailbreak. You'll still be jailbroken
