    hey guys,
    i just came back from europe after 4 months and i havent been following the updates that have been released.

    I am currently quckpwned with 2.1 and i wish to upgrade to the latest version.

    I need some help with this....

    Is it ok to use the jailbroken backup from itunes for the upgrade, or do i need to quickpwn from scratch to the latest version?? i am asking this because i actually want to keep all my contacts and sms msgs from europe.

    Also are there any other issues that i should be aware off? i have been so out of touch with the winpwn and quickpwn updates that i have no idea of the possible issues....

    Lastly, is the procedure the same as before, restore the phone to factory settings in itunes after creating a itunes backup, then apply quickpwn, and then restore from backup again in itunes??

    Thanks for the help guys,,

    P.S. My phone is factory unlocked in new zealand

    Sync your phone with iTunes. Now restore it to factory settings, update the firmware, and then run QuickPwn. After this you can restore your iPhone backup from iTunes and you're done.

    Never mind, if it's factory unlocked your okay to update ton any firmware! :D
