    I'm wanting to update from 2.2 to 2.2.1 and I'm jailbroken. Want I want to know is that if I do a clean install ie: set up as a new phone and start afresh, then resycn after the update will this put back in mail settings etc.. Or does setting up as a new phone delete all your back ups as well?

    I know I will loose my 3rd party apps... Well going to back them up with appbackup 1st, but just want to do a clean install with out loosing my apple mail settings and apps?

    I've searched this but can't find a answer, people seem to have so many different ways of upgrading and just want it to go as smooth a possible !

    Thanks

    I did my update yesterday from 2.2 on a jailbroken phone and this is the procedure I followed from hutch:

    This is what I do every time I upgrade.

    PLEASE NOTE TO BACKUP CYDIA APPS YOU NEED THE PROGRAM APTBACKUP - NOT APPBACKUP

    If you havent got it already install AptBackup through Cydia and do a backup
    Then sync with iTunes (this backs up your list of installed Apps)
    Update to latest Firmware in iTunes
    Run Quickpwn
    Install Aptbackup through Cydia
    Restore through AptBackup

    I first backed up using AptBackup and then updated to the latest firmware through iTunes, just let iTunes do it thing.

    No worries, I was a bit cautious at first but it is very straight forward. Once iTunes has finished just run QuickPWN on your phone and download the AptBackup from Cydia and do a restore. This is what I did and it worked perfectly the only thing is you will need to re-organise your springboard and some settings in your apps.
