IPhone :: Have Jailbroken 3GS W - 3.0 Firmware - Jailbroken - Unlocked - 3.1.2 Firmware
I realize the answers to most of what I'm about to ask are probably available in different places, but the jailbreaking/unlocking process has just gotten so hairy lately that I hope some people here can get me going in the right direction with this stuff.

I bought an iPhone 3GS when they were first released and jailbroke it shortly after; I've been very pleased with it ever since but haven't had the time to update anything in the last few months (I still have the original 3.0 firmware).

I'll be visiting Europe for a few months soon, though, so I'd like to take the opportunity to update my firmware/jailbreak versions, as well as unlock my phone so I can use European SIM cards instead of paying through the nose to AT&T.

I was wondering what the best way was to go about all this? What programs and methods should I use, and in what order? I'm a bit concerned about doing something wrong and making it impossible to jailbreak/unlock in the future. As I mentioned earlier, I got my 3GS when they were first released so I understand an untethered jailbreak should be possible. I'm also a Windows user.

A few other questions in particular:

1. What's the best way to backup everything, including all my personal stuff (texts, notes, emails, bookmarks), app store and cydia apps and associated data, winterboard/theme settings, and everything else?
2. I've read that setting up the iPhone as a new phone instead of restoring from a backup yields better battery life for some users; has this been proven to be the case? Is it worth the hassle of having to restore things manually if I set up as a new phone?
3. Is there any decreased battery life after unlocking my phone, apart from what I'm already experiencing with a jailbroken phone?
4. Does unlocking my phone change my user experience in any way when I'm at home and using AT&T's network?

IPhone :: Am Not Jailbroken?
So i upgraded from 1.14 to 2.01 last night but it seems like I am not 'jailbroken'. I don't see an icon for Cydia or any other of the packages i chose. When the IPwnage was finished and iTunes asked me to restore from backup or treat as a new phone, what should I have picked? I chose restore, so maybe that was the problem?

IPhone :: How To Upgrade From Jailbroken 2.0.2 To 2.1?
I know you guys are sick of hearing questions like this, but I can't find a straight answer. I'm currently jailbroken on windows using quickpwn 2.0.1 firmware file and 2.0.2 firmware on the phone. Everything is fine.All I want to know is if I need to do a restore as new phone before I can jailbreak to 2.1? Or if I will be able to just jailbreak leaving my phone exactly as it is now?

IPhone :: 3.0 For 3GS Is Available / Jailbroken And Installable On 3G
According to iclarified 3.0 is now available for 3gS phones. They state that this version will not work with 3g or 2g. Is this the version that contains the extras? Like voice command, video capture, etc? If so could it be hacked or jailbroken to be able to install it on existing 3g's? Just wondering?

IPhone :: Can't Tethering With A Jailbroken?
A co worker of mine racked up 2 gigs of data 2 months ago and burned through a blistering 8.6 gigs of data this past month. All of this on his 3Gs and none of it done by tethering with a jailbroken iPhone. He "claims" that he has no clue how it happened but I'm guessing he knows. How many video clips of wholesome family entertainment would he have to download to hit that impossible number. I nearly myself when I saw the bill.

IPhone :: How To Restore It From Jailbroken
A friend of mine jailbroke my phone, and I absolutely hate it. I've tried multipe time to reset all and restore it from the phone. Every time I do so, my phone stays on this black screen with a spinning wheel. It never goes away. I can't restore my phone from iTunes, because I use an Internet card and the download to update my phone before restoring, is too big. What can I do?!?!!

IPhone :: 3G - Backup My Jailbroken 2.1 Data
I just jailbroke my iPhone for the first time using QuickPwn to get jailbreak 2.1. Everything worked great, I was grabbing some stuff off of Cydia, all was well and I loved it. Then I restarted my iPhone after installing a bunch of apps, and I got stuck on the never-ending apple logo. After I tried restoring a backup I made with iTunes off my jailbroken iPhone, I would never be able to start the iPhone up again. For whatever reason, data could be copied to the iPhone while still on the never-ending apple loading screen, but I would never go back to the home screen. After two more attempted restores of the backup of the jailbroken iPhone, I gave up and went back to the official 2.1 firmware.

Now I am about to jailbreak again, but how do I make a backup of my jailbroken iPhone that I can actually restore from successfully? Is there any way to?

IPhone :: Backing Up My Jailbroken Data?
So I would like to update to 2.2.1 and I saw quickpwn is now compatible. The question I have is will I lose the jailbroken apps, etc that I have now? I just consolidated 5 pages of apps into categories and don't really relish the thought of doing it all over, plus the UI tweaks I've done. This will be my first update so I wasn't sure how that works. Thanks for all of your help, these forums are the best!

IPhone :: Jailbroken On AT&T Without Data Plan?
OK, I'm a cheap bastard (I should say I have a 1y/o that's eating/******** me out of money and is going into daycare next month $$$) but I'd love an iPhone. (my Dad has one, loves it, and has offered to pay the first $200 towards the hardware) I'm wondering if I were to buy an iPhone outright, and use an AT&T sim card in it, but w/o any data plan, what would work when out of range of a WiFi network? I don't see myself using a lot of data when away from WiFi EXCEPT for the GPS/Maps, but how much of that needs data? Is that DLing the maps using data on the fly, or are some of the maps built into the system? If I didn't have a data plan are there any other map/gps options that would work w/o data? My situation is I really don't want to (or can afford to) spend the $30/month on data. I don't see myself using it tons (it would be nice, but not $30 nice) beyond the gps, so if I could have that while in the car, then WiFi elsewhere I'd be fine.I'm looking for the best combo of in car GPS, MP3 player (we already have 3 ipods in the house), palm type device and phone. The iPhone seems to be one tempting option if I can get around the $30 data plan and only use those features on a WiFi connection. But will I also lose the ability to use it as a GPS?

IPhone :: All Apps Free After Jailbroken?

IPhone :: Way To Change MAC Address Of Jailbroken 3GS?
Is there a way to change the MAC address of a jailbroken 3GS? I've tried the GUI app SpoofMAC and it simply doesn't work (although it thinks it is successful).

I also tried changing it manually with MobileTerminal with the 'ifconfig en0 lladr' command, just how I do it on my Mac, but it returns some error (bad value) every time I try that.

IPhone :: How To Restore Jailbroken Phone Without Old Sim?
This may be a problem covered in a few places already, but I feel like I'm going crazy trying to find up to date answers to my questions, since it feels like the software is constantly changing. So I jailbroke a 3G 3.0 iphone that belonged to a friend. I had some battery problems so decided to update it to 3.1.2. So I downloaded the ipsw for this and the pwnage tool. I went through the steps and went into DFU mode, was prompted to go to itunes and restore with my costume ipsw. I did this, but can't use the 'shift-restore' trick to select the update. Now I'm stuck in recovery/DFU mode (not sure which) and can't even restore to 3.1.3 because I unlocked the phone and don't have the original sim. All I want is to get my phone back up and running on a 3.1.x OS.
