If I restore my phone as new then install iOS4, is there any way to get my apps' data back on to my phone?
I assume doing a full restore will bring files that were left over from Spirit JB and thus cluttering up my new install of iOS4, correct?

To get the 4.0 GM on my Spirit jailbroken iPhone 3GS, I downloaded iTunes 9.2, connected iPhone to my computer, ran a backup, installed 4.0 GM, and finally ran a restore from backup. All apps, data, music, videos, settings, etc. where just like they should be. I was concerned because I had Categories on my iPhone, but all was good.
I did not re-virginize and all worked as I'd hoped.

i have a brand new iphone (3gs) running 3.1.3 software. i heard there pretty much wasnt any jailbreak for that version so i decided ill wait a few days until 4.0 software comes out (which i hear already has jailbreak for beta versions).
so i was wondering. when i jailbreak my phone does that delete all my ringtones,music,apps or what? also is there going to be a stable jailbreak available for the real 4.0 software coming out tomorrow?

ie. were there files that were used by Spirit that were backed up and therefore copied back to the phone during the restore that are just sitting in the file system.

Jailbreak for the official iOS4 is rumored to be coming soon as they already have them for the early iOS4 version.
What I'm curious to know is what baseband my 3GS change to if I update to iOS4 from an unlocked 3.1.2 (baseband 5.11.07) I'm thinking I should just wait to experience iOS4 on the iPhone 4 this Thursday.

On same situation as Survivor61, I did connect my iPhone to iTunes 9.2, and it says that a new version is available (3.1.3) anyone knows why? Is it required before going to iOS4?
Edit: Well by clicking Help/Check for Updates it now suggests 4.0.
Based on DEV-TEAM website we have nothing to do but wait.

So, nothing to do. Sit down and wait until DEV-TEAM releases the tools. I hope nobody goes crazy and update to 4.0. To kill my anxiety I'll just download the 4.0 SDK and have a play on it.

I was just wondering…
I have a Jailbroken 3.1.3 device, and I have iTunes 9.2 installed an running. I read on tipb that I had to restore to Regular 3.1.3 in order to successfully Update to iOS4, but when I tried to “Shift+Click” Restore and select firmware in iTunes 9.2, it told me that it isn’t compatible.
Can someone tell me what I did wrong, or tell me what I need to do? Or even answer this one question – If I click Restore in iTunes, will it restore to 3.1.3 automatically and Update to iOS4? Or will I have to actually manually restore to 3.1.3? I’ve been dying to know, but scared to try it out.

I've seen this question asked multiple times now but I don't think I've seen a clear answer to it yet. Does anyone know for sure if I update my iPhone 3GS from a jailbroken 3.1.2 to official iOS 4.0 willingly giving up my jailbreak if I will be able to jailbreak it again in the future once the DevTeam finalizes and releases their jailbreak software. I'm assuming yes since it should be the same as a never before jailbroken phone running iOS 4 being jailbroken, but am still worried about updating. I don't mind giving up jailbreak for a few days while I play with the new features but don't want to not be able to jailbreak it in the future.
