    I'm interested in jailbreaking my 3GS but I'm running 8.2.1, does anyone know or has anyone tried jailbreaking with 8.2.1 installed?

    Or does it matter?

    Thanks

    Seems to stop syncing..

    EDIT: CORRECTION this did not break syncing for me. I did something stupid which I won't regale here.

    I have an iPod Touch OS 3.0 (jailbroken) and it has stopped mine from syncing.. I will restore and see if it is repeatable later..

    Watch here for the okay to upgrade. You don't want to upgrade anything before them saying it's okay and won't hurt the jailbreak. :)

    Question: is this the first time apple has tried to stop the jailbreak from the iTunes side of things, i know firmware updates usually break them but i can't remember having to worry about iTunes.

    After you uninstall and clear the registry you go find an older version of iTunes online then just install that

    Yea, because my updates download automatically and I clicked install before looking to see what they were. Good job being a smart ass!

    I haven't been able to find 8.2 for mac though. Closest i found was the 8.2 betas and those won't work properly either.

    I updated to 8.2.1 and the jailbreak went perfect (using redsn0w .8)

    Well if you're using Windows, you can use Windows Contacts and sync your contacts automatically every time you restore. No more worrying about back ups.
