    if you upgrade and not restore to 1.1.4, your SMS and mail and all those things like contacts etc... all your customisations will stay. this is because an upgrade doesnt touch /var/mobile/Media

    from the youtube videos, im looking to click restore and then back up and then restore and upgrade...

    so would the upgrade mean once the restore is done then the upgrade my sms's etc will still be there?

    Thanks for helping

    yeah, a restore wipes everything. download iPhone PC Suite and then backup your stuff. Restore to 1.1.4, jailbreak, activate, unlock etc and then use iPhone PC Suite to sync the backups across again

    jailbreaking and activating wont cause a brick but the unlock might only if you are upgrading from 1.0.2 or below. If so, add source "i.unlock.no" and install "The Virginizor" and then upgrade & unlock with iLiberty. For more info on virginizing, see my iPhone guide "iStudy". download it from http://www.appledailytimes.com/download/

    restoring will relock it and unjailbreak it so you have to start from scratch on that end
