    Im a new user and i want to jailbreak my iphone. I just updated to the 2.2 version via itunes. I have everything set-up where my computer and mobile me account and my iphone are synced together, where any changes in contacts, ical, etc. would change it on all three of these devices. So my question would be if i jailbreak my iphone would this cause any problems with the syncing of these three devices? And say there is no problem, but i run into problems with my iphone after jailbreaking like system errors or whatever it may be...is there any way to store my current iphone settings as a back-up on my computer so that i can always restore back to my liking it if there are any problems?


    Thanks. Sorry, this is all new to me.

    I'll give it a shot but I'm not really a genius in this field:

    If you backup your phone as it is now, say something goes wrong (it shouldn't, just follow the directions and relax), then THAT backup will be THE backup your phone will go to. I just jailbroke mine last night (feels good to be back!) and I had to reinitiate my mobileMe info just like when I got the 3G the first time. All of that information is stored "outside" of your phone so after the jailbreak, you just collect it again and put it back. I hope this helps...if I'm wrong anyone, please feel free to slap me. Good luck!!

    If you're already an AT&T subscriber, you don't have anything to worry about. If you're NOT an AT&T user than I don't know I didn't change carriers (AT&T) when I jailbroke...I only did the jailbreak to change my appearance and download some stuff.

    Yes, you can use quickpwn... the pwnage tool and other stuff is for the users that want to jailbreak and save the baseband in case they want to unlock the phone to a new carrier at some point down the road.

    I have a question. I have a 2g iPhone with the 2.2 update and jailbroken. But fir some reason today the dialer will not let me make calls. When I touch the phone icon to make a call it opens shows the dialer for a breif second and then closes. It won't let me dial a number, bring up my favs, or my contacts. Any suggestions as to why this is happening and what I can do to prevent it from happening again and what steps I need to do to fix it other than a restore and re-jailbreaking. HELP

    AppAttack: You seem very helpful and nice enough to make sure the guy you were helping out got the jailbreak down.

    So I wanted to ask you a question.

    Here is my info:
    Iphone 3g
    updated to 2.2
    using At&t as my carrier and don't want to change.
    Only looking to have the capability to change themes, get video recorder and be able to type in landscape mode.

    I am really nervous about jailbreaking my iphone 3g. I'm scared that I'll mess something up and that it will somehow stop working.

    My question to you is and I'm sure you've prob answered these on most of your posts already but is quickPwn the only thing I need to use to jailbreak it? And where can I find this quickPwn?

    If I somehow manage to screw this up can I use the restore backup on my itunes? If so how would itunes know which backup copy I want to restore to?

    Hey man I noticed that you just jailbroke your phone. Was it easy enough? Did it take away any useful features you were used to before JB'ing it?

    Any suggestions or advice that you can give me would be great.

    Thanks.

    No it was pretty simple and straight forward. It took me around 10 minutes. Nothing went wrong, I still have everything that i originally had on it. It works great. You should for sure do it. Good Luck!

    Thank you so much for answering. I will try it tonight. I was just worried that I would lose some of the functions the Iphone came with by jailbreaking it.

    One other question... while doing the jailbreak Will I have an option to use this QuickPwn program and not the QuickPwn tools when Jailbreaking my Iphone? I'm only looking to add those extra features (themes, landscape typing mode etc. etc) I want to stay with my AT&T carrier so I won't need to unlock it.

    Thanks again... this forum is great!

    Yes u don't need the
    Tools. Just quickpwn. It's super simple and easy. U only need the tools I beleive if u don't have Att.  so don't sweat it. Just follow the instructions and you should be good to goif somethin happens just restore it and do it againand maybe say a lil prayer  this time 

    Ok currently in the process of jailbreaking it do I check the box for *Add Cydia* and *Add Installer* ?

    Remember I'm only looking to add the cool features (themes, landscape typing mode etc. etc) NOT planning on switching carrier.

    Id just add cydia because installer doesn't have as many features. And cydia had pretty much everything u can get with installer plus more. 

    HI
    I have just jail broken my 3g iphone. all the apps look fine but the phone dialer has now frozen and wont let me dial. the call button is green and the dialer returns to the main screen automaticaly after a few seconds.
    Any quick fixes or do i just use the iphone restore and start again ?

    I have seen lots of posts on the web with the same issue but have not found a fix or an answer
