    My phone is jailbroken and with this new 3.0 coming out in the summer would I have to wait til a new jailbreak comes out to download the 3.0 then go back to jailbreak? Also, when I do go back to "normal" are all the things that I did in the jailbreak gone and I will have to start over? Thanks

    Yes and yes.

    Every time a new software upgrade comes out it requires you to jailbreak again once you've installed the new version. And with the new jailbreak nothing is saved from the old so you do have to reinstall everything again.

    Exactly why I'm still running 2.2 on my phone. I don't feel like upgrading to 2.2.1 and having to re JB and re install everything.

    What about the jailbreak apps that you pay for? So that means if you want to upgrade your software you have to pay again for the apps?

    can we reinstall the jb stuff from our computer? I know it is on open ssh can we transfer the info to vista and then reinstall?

    Jailbreak apps. that you pay for are usually registered to your iPhone's SN so you'll be able to just reinstall them without having to pay for them again.

    Cydia is probably an easier way to install. There is a app. called Apt. Backup which makes a record of all your JB apps. Then when you run it it reinstalls them all one by one for you from Cydia. You still have to reconfigure them all but it installs them all in one shot.
