    Hey there gang.

    So I got myself an iPhone the other day. It is 4.3.1 and 04.10.01 baseband.

    I want to jailbreak now. The only thing is, do i have to do a restore to clean up the iPhone before JB? The rest seems to be pretty clear from iClarified.

    if i dont restore before JB, will jailbraking wipe my data?

    Thanks!

    It is up to you whether you want to restore the phone or not. Jailbreak will not wipe any data off the phone.

    If you have loads of things (music/apps) on your iphone when you jailbreak, it increases the chance of the jailbreak failing and will run slower.

    But if you clear your iphone, the jailbreak will run faster and smoother.

    So in the end it depends how full your iphone is with music and apps.

    yeah I'm calling BS on this as well. Both times I've jailbroken, there has been plenty of data on my iPhone (nearly full at that) and I've never experienced performance issues.

    Just back up your phone through iTunes first and then run redsn0w.

    Some JBs reformat your phone, while others don't. Either way, you should backup before you JB, in case things go wrong.
    I've always had good JB experiences, but I always backup first.
