AppStore Apps and Jailbreaking Question
I am looking to jailbreak my 2.0.1 3G iPhone for the first time. I've downloaded quite a few apps from the store and I'm curious if those will remain on my phone when I jailbreak? Or do I need to redownload and set them all back up after I jailbreak?

Depends on how you are going to do it. If you are on a mac when you use pwnage it creates a custom firmware file and then you have to restore your phone with that firmware which will wipe the phone. You will not lose all your app store apps though. Just have to load them back on manually. They will stay in iTunes.
Doing this through WinPwn. My understanding is I need to use the standard restore file that I download. So this would lead to me losing everything right? Then I restore from a backup and get my contacts and such back but I will need to reload my Apps right?
Really appreciate the help

You are partly correct, after you load the custom firmware you have to set up everything on your phone like it was new. You will lose everything off the phone yes but all your bought music and or apps will still be in iTunes waiting for you. Then sync your contacts, music, pictures, apps, etc... All of your old backup files will be useless.
