    Help! FW Update : iTunes & FW Version Issues?

    This chart shows the Release Sequence with dates and version numbers for iTunes and iPhone Firmwares:


    Picasa Web Albums - Abhi

    Typical Update Process involves the following steps-

    • SyncBackup of iPhone FW A by iTunes X
    • JB/Unlock by some Tool
    • Restore FW B by iTunes X
    • SyncRestore iPhone FW B by iTunes X

    Now here there is a huge gap between what I currently have & where I need to go.

    iTunes: 8.2
    iPhone 2G: 2.2

    Now, I know 8.2 can handle Backups for 2.2.

    My fear is there might be some issues / incompatibility between iTunes versions / iPhone FW that are too far apart.
    Now, I am wondering if it might mess up my
    • iPhone
    • Backups
    • Cracked IPAs
    • Cydia Apps
    • Any other Settings / Data

    I am wondering which of the following is what I need to do:

    1) I update to iTunes 9.0.3 / 9.1 assuming and hoping it safely works with 2G 2.2
    (I am wondering if that would be with / without cracked apps).
    Anyone experimented with that?

    • Update iTunes X > Y
    • SyncBackup of iPhone FW A by iTunes Y
    • JB/Unlock by some Tool
    • Restore FW B by iTunes Y
    • Sync Restore iPhone FW B by iTunes Y

    2) I update to iTunes 9.0.3 / 9.1 in the middle assuming & hoping it does no mess the SyncBackups & SyncRestore Data i.e. SyncDATA is handled / managed across versions
    (I am wondering if that would be with / without cracked apps)

    • SyncBackup of iPhone FW A by iTunes X
    • JB/Unlock by some Tool
    • Update iTunes X > Y
    • Restore FW B by iTunes Y
    • Sync Restore iPhone FW B by iTunes Y

    OR

    3) Do I need to do some R&D to determine which special sequence involving multiple versions of iTunes works best? Especially given the order of / releases and Release dates of iPhone FW & iTunes.

    ALSO:
    Cracked Apps / .IPAs that are in iTunes & on iPhone… How do I ensure they survive when I go across from a:
    2.2 FW: Mobile Substrate (Some pre-AppSync that allowed Cracke IPAs)
    to
    3.1.x FW: AppSync for Installd

    We can't answer your questions. You have asked for help with cracked apps which is a zero tolerance subject here. Thread closed. Do not ask again about cracked apps or you will be banned.

    Your other questions have been answered previously, search around. Basically you are over complicating things.
