    I was just wondering this as I used quickpwn to jailbreak my ipod touch with firmware 2.2.1. Everything works fine on it as of now but does someone know if upgrading will brick my itouch or anything like that? Any replies are welcome.

    Upgrading will not brick it. I recommend that you restore, then update and do not restore from a backup once you are on 3.0. Previously jailbroken users have experienced trouble because there are some "left overs" from the jailbreak bogging down 3.0

    well, since the only firmware ive ever had is 2.2.1, i cant really answer that. i would like to know too, but my best guess is that you can just click update, and it will "erase" your jailbreak. but you can also do a backup, restore, and update, then rejailbreak when it comes out. but thats all i know.

    well you don't need to restore before upgrading, in theory, but i highly recommend you restore before updating so you don't have any leftover jailbreak hiccups on 3.0. Also, DO NOT restore from a backup on 3.0, just wait for a jailbreak.

    i went from firmware 2.2.1 to 3.0 and i did a back up. but when the update was done i had alot of things that were from the jailbreak. for example i put my name in place of the ipod word in the top left corner. when i updated it was still there. do u think that when i jailbreak 3.0 i can fix that?
