can i jailbreak a 3G running 2.2?
i have a 3g iphone and it is currently running the 2.2 firmware (NEVER BEEN JAILBROKEN) ... is there a way i can jailbreak it without losing all of the apps i bought from the app store?
also if i were to jailbreak my phone would i need to downgrade it first and then jailbreak it... and THEN upgrade to the jailbroken 2.2?
I DO NOT want to unlock my phone... i just want to jailbreak it...
but if i need to downgrade to be able to jailbreak it... wouldn't it just be easier to wait for 2.3 and just jailbreak it when that comes out?

Ok, now I'm confused - I've read that if I jailbreak with 3rd party applications installed, it will brick the iPhone and I'd have to do a restore, but you're saying I can run the pwn and it should be OK? (is QuickPwn better or worse than Pwnage Tool? in this respect?)
I've had a new 3G (2.2) for about a week now and have some application data that I don't want to lose and bunch of apps that I've downloaded from the App Store.
(BTW, how does one do a restore from backup? when I shift-click "restore" like someone suggested, it gives me the same "factory restore" option as always.)
