    Unhappy How do I restore the back up after upgrading my phone to 3.1.2? Please Help.

    Hey guys,
    I followed this ( Jailbreak and Unlock iPhone 3.1.2 Firmware on Windows | Redmond Pie )tutorial. I am stuck on step 10. I am really worried. I don't want to lose all my contacts and SMS history.

    * Should I click restore or sync?
    * After the restore iTunes did not ask me if I want to back up from my old phone.
    * In iTunes, if I right click the phone icon on the left pane, it just says "BACK UP" and not "Restore from backup".
    * Should I click Sync? Please Help.

    You should never install backup after new jailbreak it leads to all kinds of problems, if you dont have your contacts saved to you computer, then restore backup, then sync through itunes to windows address book (on pc), once all of your contacts are on your computer I would redo everything jailbreak and all. Its much easier using a custom fw and restoring with itunes just download one of these

    and hold shift and click restore, then select the custom fw, will jailbreak and thats it. If you need help let me know.

    Sorry links not working what phone do you have and what fw do you want?
