How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hey. I'm new to the jailbreaking world. I have an iPhone 4, 4.2.1 (8C148), with 03.10.01 baseband. Do I have to wipe (reset) all of my music, apps, contacts, etc (just like a brand new iPhone) before I jailbreak with greenpois0n and THEN sync all of my stuff back on? Or can I jailbreak with all of my stuff on there?

You can jailbreak with all your stuff on there without it blowing it out. Of course there is always that risk so make sure you have it synced and backed up juuuuuust in case :)

But everything should remain :)

Good Luck!
