I have a question about a jailbroken phone. I have a 2g iPhone jailbroken with pwnage 2.0.1. I have installed multipe apps, themes, etc. through Cydia. If I had a problem and had to restore my phone would I have to jailbreak again and re-install all of my apps? Or would the jailbroken version of my firmware remain on iTunes just requiring a re-sync?


Thanks

A restore will wipe out a jailbreak. You'll need to re-pwn then install everything all over again. What's worse... when restoring for an update for a jailbroken iPhone, it's advisable to restore as a new device (instead of restoring from the backup), which has the potential for personal data loss if you're not careful about how you sync your data.

These are the trials and tribulations of the jailbreaker. :(
