    I want to pwn my 2.0 v1 iPhone with winpwn. I'm at the DFU stage and I'm afraid to move on. I have maybe 100 notes and a few hundred bookmarks. Plus some map bookmarks and other things I don't want to lose.

    We lose everything when we jailbreak, right? Do we lose all of our notes and bookmarks? Is there a way to back these up and retrieve them after the jailbreak?

    Your notes, mail, bookmarks, the whole thing is backed up to iTunes when you sync. If you "restore from backup" after jailbreaking, you'll be ok.

    Did you sync up before you started the pwning process? You don't HAVE to set up your jailbroken device as a new phone although it does alieviate some performance issues. Here's what'd I do - restore from your previous backup after the jailbreak -> get your notes and bookmark files via SSH -> do the jailbreak again but set up as new -> put your files back!

    That's what I did but there may be something easier..

    I thought it was recommended to setup as a new phone when updating to 2.0?

    ben, where are those files located?

    So if we restore from a backup right after the jailbreak it could cause performance issues? can anyone confirm this?

    The performance issues previously mentioned were mainly due to conflicting mail settings. So what you can do is get rid of your mail accounts, then sync and finally restore.

    so let me get this straight. I need to delete my mail account that I have on my unjailbroken iPhone. Back up my iPhone in iTunes. Jailbreak. Restore from backup and then re add my mail account? Thanks in advance
