I have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS with 3.1.3 and I want to upgrade it to 3.2.

Is it possible to do so without losing everything?

I don't particularly see why you would lose your data when upgrading… but then I also don't particularly see why you'd prefer to have your 3GS on 3.2x when you could have it on 4.2x just as easily…

Do you sync your iPhone with iTunes and use it to back up? If so, you're unlikely to have a problem. Just go to and pick the tutorial that's right for your phone's situation.

I see why - because 4 isn't needed and it's slower. But I have mine on 4 due to other reasons and, as long as you keep it clean, it's not that bad and not so much slower. – cregox Apr 1 '11 at 17:47
