    I did, but when I did the system restore it erased everything.. I've still got the backup copy on my iTunes somewhere I guess, but idk how to do anything without messing up the jailbreak? if that makes sense..

    when you restore from a back up it does not touch the firmware

    iTunes backups don't have anything to do with the firmware. They involve app data (game saves, etc.), contacts, etc.

    Thank you. And I asked that because I haven't been able to get a straight answer from anyone. Thanks again.
