    Hello all,

    This has probally been shot to death a million times but I just a need a quick question answered.

    If I have a standard, non-jailbroken iPhone running 2.2.1, and want to jailbreak it for the first time - do all my currently applications and contacts, phone settings, etc get deleted upon the jailbreak?

    Thanks for the help,
    iGreggor

    QuickPwn will not delete any data on the Phone, PwnageTool will. Use QuickPwn.

    Windows
    Mac

    Are they are guides for this process? I just don't want to brick the device...

    The only way it can get bricked is if you happen to unplug it while the firmware is being flashed. Other than that, a DFU restore will fix any problems you encounter.

    A few tips:
    -Always back up first
    -Try not to have a bunch of stuff on the phone when you run quickpwn (apps and media)
    -Relax
