Like I said before Just do a backup and restore from it afterward.

Yeah, but I thought you cant restore from a jailbroken backup? So does that mean you can only backup before the jailbreak and then never have a backup?

You thought wrong

You can restore from backup to a jailbroken phone all day long, all your contacts, sms, etc will be placed back on your phone.

Sorry, still not quite sure about this..... you mean a jailbroken backup can be restored to a jailbroken phone (after an upgrade ect) right?

Don't confuse "restore from backup" with "restoring the firmware". To jailbreak, you create a custom firmware and restore that firmware. When you restore from backup, you aren't updating the firmware, you're replacing all of the saved settings, data, etc from the phone. So, from the start if you're going to jailbreak, first do a full backup. Then apply the jailbroken firmware, then restore from backup and you'll have all of your email, sms, contacts, etc.

Nothwithstanding what the other poster said, I fpersonallly would stay away from QuickPwn. Its too new and there are other issues such as not getting Cydia, etc in all cases.
