    Cool How to back up everything on an iPhone 4?
    Im trying to backup all of my stuff on the iPhone 4 running 4.2.6

    I want to back up all of my contacts, Pictures and videos, and my voicemails, and possibly my text messages.

    How can i back up my pictures and still have them in my camera roll instead of putting them into the 'Photo Library'

    You can backup using itunes but after a restore , you need to do a backup restore to get back all your stuffs. Although it is not recommended but it can be done.
    When iphone is plug in, you should see your iphone drive, click on it and drag the pictures folder onto desktop.
    If your iphone is not jailbroken, do an update then do your jailbreak to maintain your stuffs. If it is jailbroken, then a restore is needed before a jailbreak can be applied successfully and setup as a new iphone is recommended but you will lose some stuffs like sms. Contacts, notes video , pics are all in your computer and can always be synced back.

    You may or may not have a problem if you setup as a backup restore. It is up to you.
    When you sync your contacts with itunes , where did you sync it in your computer? Mine goes to Microsoft outlook . There are four categories in itunes for you to chooose e.g. Google address book, yahoo address book & etc
    Pictures / videos , as i have mentioned you should see your iphone drive and the pic folder is there for you to access when you plug in .
    Summary : i suggest you stay at 4.2.6 until the release of IOS 5 and untethered jailbreak . If you do update now, you may end up going to 4.2.9 and no jailbreak.

    Isn't the latest 4.3.3 ? That can be jailbroken?
    I think I synced my contacts with windows address book or something.

    If you want to restore to 4.2.8 fw which apple no longer signs , you need to have 4.2.8 shsh to be able to restore to 4.2.8

    Run tiny umbrella to find out.

    You need to restore to cfw of 4.2.8 , you cannot restore to stock 4.2.8, you can't get out error 1013

    I didn't read the link and i don't how much info is in there.

    I just restored my iphone 4 GSM model to stock 4.3.3 so i can try out jailbreakme 3.0

    Should you have any problems , you should refer to the CDMA LINK i gave you.

    For verizon iphone, you cannot restore to stock 4.3.3 and therefore you cannot use jailbreakme 3.0

    It won't work with stock fw as apple is not signing 4.2.8 even if you have shsh.
