Hi - I wonder if someone could explain this small process for me - as I think I am confusing a couple of things;
At this point I have a bog standard 16gb 3G iphone (not jailbreaked)
(Using Windows XP)
When I plug into iTunes - and it starts the backup process, am I simply backing up the contents of the iphone? or does it also backup the stock firmware?
If it doesnt back up the vanilla firmware - would I already have a copy of this somewhere?
The reason for my question is .. if I jailbreak the iphone - and then plug into iTunes (i take it you still use iTunes after jailbreaking?) - will it overwrite my stock firmware, assuming that gets backed up?
Finally; As I understand it pwning my iPhone is completely reversible; i.e I can take it back to vanilla firmware, is that right? And if so; where would I get this vanilla firmware from?
My hunch is that I am confused what is being backed up and I am confusing firmware with contents of iPhone.
