    Some people say you need to install as new but I updated and everything is running perfectly for me.

    I set my iPhone 4 up as new. Now, I'm just going through the 3 hour process of syncing 3500 songs.

    I'm going to try and update. If there are any issues I will set up as new.

    Ok.. so if you were to do an UPDATE install instead of a FRESH install.. would that still keep your Jailbreak working?

    If you have your contacts synced somewhere (Exchange, Outlook, Mobileme), you can re-sync them.
