    I've been very disappointed thus far with Cydia and Installer, and I'm wanting to rejailbreak, as I don't use any apps that I can't get with the App Store. How do I do this? I'm on 2.1 w/ a 3G... I used PwnageTool to jailbreak, too... is it as simple as restoring? I know it's as easy as that with an iPod touch, but... yeah. Thanks!

    Its the same process as with the iPod touch but with the iPhone firmware, obviously.

    Put the phone in DFU mode and then plug it in.

    lol you've got to be kidding me...

    restore from backup if you want to restore from backup
    restore as new phone if you want to restore as a new phone

    not that complicated

    You can generally restore from backup safely -- the backup doesn't contain anything related to J/B. But then it all depends on what caused your phone to become slow to begin with. If it really was something to do with J/B, you should be fine. If it's still slow after you restore from backup, restore the firmware again and don't restore the backup.
