    I'm trying to find it on the boards, but maybe im not looking for the RIGHT keywords. If i already jailbroke 2.2 using pwnage tool, and the next version comes out, how do i go about the process? Do i have to restore my iphone 3g before I update, then rejailbreak?

    Also, I have a unibody macbook. To get around it, I've used a USB hub. But it only works for me with pwnage tool. When I use quickpwn, I get stuck auto rebooting over and over without an error message. When the next quickpwn comes out, will this problem be fixed since I've already jailbreaked before? Thanks

    Wait for the DevTeam to come out with a new JB, do nothing until.

    +1.

    I was going to say, wait a week, update, apply the new jailbreak.

    Simply because it takes them about a week to crack anything anymore. :D

    Wrong.

    You should backup, update, restore from back up.

    If you have a jail broken phone, and you update, than re-jail break, you will lose 500mb each time you do this on your hard drive.

    No, you are wrong.

    1. Backup
    2. Restore the firmware (to create a virgin phone)
    3. Update the firmware
    4. Jailbreak
    5. Restore from backup taken in step 1.
