I Jailbroke my 3G iPhone shortly after the 2.2 update (which was done via QuickPwn), so the recent 2.2.1 was the first for me that was an update with a Jailbroken phone. Furthermore, though I don't have the phone unlocked at the moment, I didn't want to lose the capability to do it in case it became necessary in the future (i.e., I get sent abroad and wanted to use it on a carrier there) so I wanted to preserve the baseband through the upgrade. I followed the steps in the guide here (that match up pretty much exactly with several others I found as well), and was able to do build the new firmware in Pwnage and then install it via a restore- but this resulted in the phone being largely wiped clean of all the media files and apps I had installed. Thankfully I'd figured that would happen and had backed things up and prepared for it- but I have to wonder, is this normal? And if so, is there a better way to back up things from the phone so you don't lose ratings and such (I used Senuti to build a playlist in iTunes that I could just copy back over, but it didn't keep all my ratings so I've got to re-rate everything)? I was pleased though with how well AptBackup worked for the Cydia apps. Thanks!
