Will upgrading to 2.1 from jailbroken 1.0 wipe off my data?

    I am trying to decide whether I should upgrade to 2.1 or not. The thing is, I don't want to risk losing all the data I already have stored in the my jailbroken 1.0. So will upgrading to the legit 2.1 version require that I have all my data (notes, contacts, calendar...) wiped out in the process too?

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Can't you just backup all your data and restore them after you upgrade?

    Would the backup function on iTunes perform this function? Can I restore 1.0 data onto a 2.1?

    Yes, the only data you will not get back is stuff from jailbroken apps. iTunes backs up and restores everything that you can add or change on a stock iphone.

    wow, that's good news, since I don't relaly care about my jailbroken apps. So I just hit the backup button, then upgrade and restore? Then I should get everything back except jailbroken apps? How about music and pictures?

    With 1.0, there are really no features to back up, so go ahead and do a restore. Otherwise, you will have remnants of your old 1.0 Jailbreak apps left over, and they will just be dead space on your iPod.
