    I am going to jailbreak my iphone 4 using pwnage. When jailbreaking it asks for the root partition size. What is root partition? Can it be deleted when restoring iphone? also how much root partition will i need if i am going to install 1-5 apps from cydia?

    Why are you in expert mode when you clearly aren't an expert?

    leave it default...
    I recommend you go the simple mode route...

    I think they will if you restore from backup. Not positive though.

    no need if you are using PwnageTool; iTunes vanilla FW update is for RedSn0w.

    I can't knock that. Good for you for wanting to learn about something by doing it. Just don't whine if you screw anything up, okay?
