    3. Will I lose my apps? Aptbackup & Appbackup are must haves at this point?
    4. When iTunes loads, will it be able to sync everything properly? I've read somewhere that you must choose new iPhone?

    Thanks in advance. I have 3.0 and I'm pretty comfortable with it at the moment. Just want to hear some input if it's worth it to upgrade.
    It's not worth the update if its working nicely.

    I just updated my 3G and I wish I didnt It was fine and I lost a few things in the update.

    As for you, I'll answer 1 at a time
    1, nope.
    2, Yes you will have to redo all the settings again.
    3, You will only loose your Cydia apps. The others are still in iTunes and will sync when you patch the phone like usual.
    4, Yes it does sync again. You restore to install the firmware then it restores everything back to the way it was.

    I have a 2G 8GB iPhone and I'm gonna leave it at 3.01 as its in no hurry to update as its working fine the way it is. There really isnt anything new that it needs an update.

    I also had this problem. I found out that I have to unmount all volumes except the main one to avoid the tools from endlessly searching.

    I found a problem with itunes. and an app.
    If you install 5 icon springboard you cant sync apps.
    itunes only syncs if you have 4 icons.

    Another reason why Apple sucks. They wont let you customize your rows anymore. bastards! I've had 5 icons since it was first released.

    Why do the blue messages refer to the iPhone 3G(S) if the jailbreak is specifically NOT for iPhone 3G(S)?

    Most likely because although the Dev-team have not officially released a tool for the 3g[s] yet, the UI for PWNage tool is already set for its usage on the 3g[s]....patience my friend, it will come

    ^Perhaps it's because it's early in the morning.. but that post didn't make sense to me
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    lolwut? I've never done this, and my iPhone(s) have always been running fine, even when switching all my data from my 3G to my 3GS. Sorry but 700+ pictures are far too many to just discard, and the method by which photos are sorted once synced to the iPhone is extremely annoying

    For minor 0.1 upgrades restoring backups seems to work fine but for major upgrades (eg 1.xx to 2.xx or 2.xx to 3.xx) you should always set up as a new phone.
    If you don't and it works then you in a very small minority! But some people get away with it.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    It is very simple to save all of your photos to your computer and then select the folder which to sync the pictures back to your phone after a restore and setting up as new....

I'll try it again later but hope a new version of redsn0w comes out soon instead.

    Edit: Seems Dev Team is saying you need to go into Expert Mode and uncheck the 'Activate' option under General if you have a legit carrier (AT&T in the US, O2 in the UK, etc).
    Seems that unchecking 'Activate Phone' and building the package worked great. Up and running now.

    Hi Guys,

    I currently have an iPhone 3G with firmWare 3.01 unlocked and Jailboken with redsnow 0.8, I now want to update my iphone to firmware 3.1.

    Can anyone tell me the easiest way of doing this, can I just download one of the firmwares shown above and then do a restore in iTunes 9?

    If Yes, what is the difference between Activated and unactivated version of the firmwares?

    Sorry for the newbie questions

    Thanks in advance

    Default upgrade from 2.2
    Helo, when I bought my Iphone 3G, it was allready jailbroken.
    I don't know how it's been done, it's still working fine, but i would like to upgrade to 3.1.
    Can anybody give me directions on how to go about this?

    THNX

    It is worth upgrading yet or is it better to wait for all the issues to get worked out and the applications to get updated to work with 3.1? Right now I'm on 3.0 with no issues at all on a 3G. Are there any major differences with having the 3.1? I just want to make sure because I seen a few people with problems with winter board and cycorder so I want to make sure all my applications will work on 3.1.

    The only problem I'm having with 3.1 so far is battery.

    error 1604 when restoring from custom ipsw, any help would be awsome

  20. #120
    Just a heads up. Winterboard now works and Cycorder does too.(Cycorder had an update after my first install of it) I forget where to enable Five Icon Dock but I had it installed previously and just restored after using PWNage and then installed Five Icon Dock and it's working too.
    I'm running a 3G that was PWN'd with 3.1.
    To a hammer everything looks like a nail
