So, I always wondered about the answer to this question...

    What's the procedure to go from JB 3.0 to any JB 3.XX?

    I'm running a JB 2.2, and never upgraded to 2.21 because I feared that you have to do the full Pwnage tool restore for each incremental update. It takes a couple of hours to restore all your music, photos, apps, and Cydia apps...

    Here's how I always saw it:

    Clean iPhone
    JB
    New update comes out
    Have to create a new IPSW with Pwnage tool
    Shift-Restore with custom IPSW
    iPhone is JB with update, but you have to sync everything again


    Is that true?

    Or you can upgrade using iTunes (lose just the jailbreak stuff), then use Redsn0w to jailbreak it, and it won't erase anything from the device. :)

    Oh, so everything sits on your partition when you update, you JB again using redsn0w, and then you have access to everything again? Man, I should have gone to 2.21 a long time ago! So, does that work for going to any update (example: from 2.2 to 3.0)? Or does that method have to be within each number (2.xx>2.xy)? Thanks.

    All your jailbreak stuff will be gone. You want to "back up" stuff by using something similar to aptbackup.
