    Ok, I am having probs like most people with Cydia crashing a lot.

    I initially used purplerain to JB my 3GS. I heard a a lot of people saying to redo it with redsn0w.

    If I restore to 3.0 and then JB will I still have all of my data if I do a backup first? (saved games etc)

    Then I can use redsn0w and JB? Should I put in ICY (ive never used it yet just stuck to cydia) but should I install cydia and then install icy through cydia will that prevent the crashing issue withahving bot hof them on?

    Do I need icy? Or can you reccommend a better JB alternative?

    I've had better luck with Purplera1n. I've used both and Redsn0w was alot more problematic. Also, if you haven't restored already, get Terminal (if you don't already have it). Or SSH in and open the terminal in there and type:

    "apt-get update" with no quotes.

    If you have, then only install Cydia, and not Cydia + Icy as it causes problems.
    Icy is okay, but Cydia is more powerful, but also more buggy.

    As long as you restore to backup (iTunes will ask after restoring), you will have pretty much all the same data as before, except for some jailbreak data.
