    Hi everybody. I just plugged in my iphone 2.2.1 to my computer and got a big shock when the page setting up a new iphone or restore backup came up.

    This comes after my phone is working fine, everything is working ipod, cydia, vidoes, safari.

    The last modification i can remember was pdanet 1.5.2 which i used iphone browser to manual install it.

    Please help

    If this is the first time you plugged the iPhone into your computer iTunes wants to sync to it.

    Tell it to setup as a new iPhone; unless you want it to restore from a backup. On the next page don't allow it to automatically sync (uncheck both boxes).

    From there you should be good to go; I would also suggest telling it to "Manually manage music". That just makes it easier to move music around.
