    Default [1.1.2 OTB] Upgrading to 1.1.4

    I was just wondering if i can keep my SMS messages, contacts, and all that data after upgrading to 1.1.4... I read somewhere that you can get them back by restoring through itunes. Any help is highly appreciated !!!

    You could restore from the iTunes backup file after restoring to 1.1.4 but this method is not ideal. Many problems that people have could be avoided if they set up as a new phone again after a restore.. Sync your contacts, etc. to Address Book, iCal, etc and set up as a new phone..

    Also.. DON'T "upgrade" to 1.1.4. Restore to 1.1.4.

    All i really need are the SMS messages. So is there any way to get them back or transfer them to your PC or anything like that ?

    Right after you restore but before you choose to start a new phone or back up you could run iplus then go back to iTunes and choose your back up, its worth a shot to at least try

    If you have ever done a restore then you will know what I am talking about. When your done the main restore iTunes will ask you do you choose to restore a backup or start a new phone. At that point you should shut down iTunes and run iplus(read iplus sticky in software unlock) when iplus is done shut it down and bring iTunes back up, it should ask you to start a new phone or restore back up, you woulb choose the back up and have all your data and the jailbreak/unlock or you could just restore, choose your back up first then shut down iTunes and run iplus. Either way you go its up to you, a clean phone is best for the process so I would choose the back up after running iplus just to make sure it goes smoothly

    Tiesto, i have done it and its easy.

    Once you open itunes (make sure its the latest version of itunes) just plug in your iphone and click sync. This will copy all of your pictures, txt msgs, call logs etc on your computer.
    When you finish restoring it to 1.1.4 itunes will tell you "this phone has been synced with this computer, do you want to set up new phone or back up from the computer". Choose the last option and this will get your txt msgs back.
