    When you do a "restore from backup" does that alter the firmware, or just the gamesaves and application settings? If I create a backup in itunes now with 2.2.1, then install 3.0 and jailbreak it, then "restore from backup" with the backup I created on 2.2.1, will that backup work with 3.0?

    The backup will work. It just backs up settings.

    I chose to start fresh with 3.0, so I did not restore from a 2.2.1 backup. One could argue that this is "better", but I do it out of habit.

    Starting fresh would be nice, but I don't want to lose all of my game savestates.
