Thread: Vista 3G 2.2 -> 3.0 , some questions

  1. #1
    Default Vista 3G 2.2 -> 3.0 , some questions
    I remember back then when I upgraded from whatever I came from to 2.2, there was a amount of data called "others" that you can't clear out because it is the stuff from previously jailbroken iphone.

    I want to ask is it possible that I can jailbreak my iphone 3g(vista pc), from 2.2.0 -> 3.0 FRESH (well with my contacts and everything). But fresh as in, no extra data left behind that takes up room?

    And if so how do i do that?

    If I just go into itunes 8.2 And update my iphone plugged in which is jailbroken...
    would it
    A.) Save my contacts
    and
    B.) delete all the old jailbroken stuff so i can have actual 8gb of storage? (well 7.2 or whatever gb after the os and stuff)

    THANKS ALOT !

    1. Make sure you don't have any apps in Categories
    2. Back up your iPhone in iTunes
    3. Put it into DFU Mode: How To: Enter DFU Restore Mode - ModMyi - Wiki
    4. Restore to 3.0
    5. Jailbreak/Unlock and Restore from Backup

    When you backup the contacts get saved into the backup and when you do a restore (versus an update) it reverts it to a stock firmware.

    how do i do a restore instead of update?
    or does that part become self explanitory ?
    and in step 5, how do i restore from back up?
    or is that part common sense when i get there ?
    thanks !

    There is a restore button in iTunes when the device is recognized. After the restore iTunes will ask if you want to set it up as a new iPhone or restore from Backup.

    Everyone is a noob at some point. Good luck with DFU mode next time you need it.
