    Question Backup App data before upgrading

    Hi folks !

    Here iīm again to search for some help !

    Iīm intending to upgrade my iPhone 4 to the new 4.2.1 (always jailbreaking of course !) (And i want to upgrade my iPad too thatīs on 3.2.2...) now that this version can be jailbreaked unthered...

    Since my iPhone 2g i never thought on backuping the game records , data , etc...
    Always restored and jailbreak to the next version...

    But now ..i have a lot of info and important data from GPS (TomTom locations.. GPS locations...Angry Birds records..lol..and a lot of other stuff) and i dont want to loose this.

    Anybody recommends a "easy" method to backup this ?
    Because i know that restoring the iphone/ipad is the best and safe method to jailbreak to another version... (and i presume that the itunes backup is useless for us that jailbreak the device..)

    You can use iTunes, just backup before restoring, then after the restore you should jailbreak before 'restore from backup' on iTunes.
    You should read How To Upgrade In iTunes | iPhone News, Help and Guides It's a little outdated but the info is still valid.

    4th - Restore the backup
    5th - Sync all my app ...and itīs fine ! all my data saved !
