    If you want want it that fricken badly, why don't you try?

    If it doesn't work, restore back to 3.0.

    Or just be patient, it'll be out soon.

    Depends what version iTunes you currently have and I am only going off of what I have read but no you can't just shift and click update.

    You might want to look at this thread.

    The best you can do is create a backup in iTunes right before you do the restore to the new firmware. After the custom firmware is finished you can restore (not the same restore as the firmware but that is what they call it) to your backup.

    That will transfer most of your info back onto the iPhone: contacts, pictures, texts, etc... Music and videos you'll have to resync.

    It depends what version iTunes you are running; but like I already mentioned no it is not that simple. You need to downgrade iTunes first which will allow you to then upgrade to the custom firmware.

    There is a thread that talks about it in detail and you may want to look it over before doing much - here is the thread.
