    Of course. There are always the risk of problems. Most of them got sorted out or are getting sorted out.

    If you aren't jailbroken you can just restore to a stock 3.0 firmware and then restore it from a backup.

    I would SSH the data out using this: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/general...ken-phone.html

    Restore it to a fresh 3.0 and set it up as a new phone. Then jailbreak it and SSH the data back it.

    Neo, question. I have never used this method but I will from this point forward. Should I copy every folder in there? and then just SSH them all in once restored? Should I delete anything in the folders or delete any folders? please explain a bit more if you would please.

    Here are the folders that I copy:

    • AddressBook
    • Caches
    • Calendar
    • CallHistory
    • Cookies
    • Mail
    • Maps
    • MobileSlideShow
    • Notes
    • Preferences
    • Reminder
    • Safari
    • SMS
    • Voicemail
    • Weather
    • Youtube

    Basically copy over anything that you will have on a stock iPhone after you restore from a backup. Example: Your notes will be restored if you restore from a backup so backup the Notes folder.

    If this is your first time doing it I would back up the entire "Library" folder that contains all of these subfolders. That way you have everything and you can pick and choose what you want to SSH back onto the new phone.

    The best part about doing this is when you say "Oh man! I forgot something. Oh wait it's right here on my desktop".

    You download all of the data into a folder on your computer. Then you restore it to 3.0 and jailbreak it again. Install OpenSSH through Cydia and SSH all of the files back into the phone.

    Ta-Da! You're done!

    Try going into Settings > Restrictions and Enable Restrictions and then disable them again. I heard that that makes hidden icons reappear most of the time.
