I would like to update my phone to the most recent firmware (1.02), but my phone is jailbreak-ed. Before updating, I would like to double-check I have a backup.
How do I backup my SMS/txt messages before restoring the phone to factory defaults. Then, once upgraded, how do I return my SMS conversations to the iPhone.
I understand that iTunes does sync/backup the phone, but how would I restore my settings?
A quick step-by-step guide in upgrading my iPhone would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

Itunes backs up all my phone numbers, sms, weather places, alarms, calendar.

I DO NOT want to wipe my iPhone for the upgrade and then find out I cannot restore my backed-up versions. Hell, I don't even know how to restore my back-ed up versions.
If anyone could give a detailed account on how to upgrade and then restore a backup (and how to make a backup), I would be very thankful.

--This is if you added your own Ringtones

I may have missed some as I'm going from memory, however these are the ones I backed up and everything worked.... except SMS, I'm thinking I missed something on that one. I might have needed the SMS .plist
Don't copy your /Media/Photos as that caused me iTune sync problems later on.
