    I hope someone can give me an idea of what I might have done. I had a problem with my iPhone 4 so I did a factory reset of the phone, and in doing so had it upgraded to 4.3.3(8J2)...this also updated my modem firmware to 4.10.1
    I didn't realize this prevented a prober JB and didn't have a backup. I was able to JB the phone, but now when I plug it into iTunes it asks me if i would like to restore or set up as a new phone. I don't want to lose the JB, but have no music, or access to my .ipa files that I have in iTunes. I can't access iTunes apps or anything because I have not run through the iTunes setup on the computer. If I set it up on iTunes, either as a new device, or as a restore will I lose everything? Thanks for any help. Kinda confused here.

    You're already screwed. Really, no backup? Why don't people do backups before performing a reset?
    You can re-d/l programs you bought for free.
    You can't restore without a backup. Set up as new erases everything.
