    i have a jailbroken iphone 3g 16gig white and i got fw 2.2.1 with baseband 02.30.03

    I wanna update it to 3.0 but keep it jailbroken, can i do that without restoring and loosing all the apps and stuff that i've installed,(jailbroken apps too ) the music, videos, contacts and stuff? i don't have the computer that i use to sync my phone, so i'll have to use another computer with itunes on it. can i do a backup on another computer and restore with the jailbroken 3.0 and and then use redsnow then put on the backup ? if so how would i put on the backup ?

    What can i do ? plz help me , thnx in advance

    All you jailbroken stuff will be lost, no exceptions. You can't update without losing the jailbreak either. If you don't have the comp you synced your phone to previously, use the comp you have now to sync it so all your apps, photos, and music will be on the comp. If you are updating iTunes should automatically sync and backup your data before it does the update. But you should do it manually just in case.

    Before you restore from the backup, jailbreak first.
    After you jailbreak, then restore from the backup.

    What is iTunes doing when you try to sync? Is this iPhone synced to another computer?
