    Default 3GS Backup before Factory unlock questions

    Hello everyone. I'm new here. I have a few questions for a noob. I have a 3GS that has been Jailbroken (with 4.2 iOS, I believe). It has not been synced (sunk? ) with iTunes since the Jailbreak, and it's been a very long time. I've loaded everything myself. I'm living in Germany. The way that the German system works is that after 2 years, your provider MUST unlock your phone, even if it has been jailbroken. SO, it is now time to do that.

    Now my questions is this: is there a way to back up EVERYTHING on my phone (contacts, sms, notes, program data, like I said...EVERYTHING) so that after it has been unlocked, I can again, use all of that data without too much hassle and time? And yes, I am aware that my Cydia apps will not work any longer. Can ifunbox manage this? I'm not sure what to do, or even if it's totally possible.

    Thanks for all of your help! You guys ROCK!

    Contacts, SMS, Notes and Program Data are stored in an iTunes backup. Without third party applications like AptBackup and AppBackup, there is no way to automate the recovery of jailbroken apps and app data on the iPhone, and those don't always work very well.

    You can manually save the application data you want using SSH, but I can appreciate this isn't really very well automated. There is no known way to take a full snapshot of the drive that can just be re-deployed at a later date yet.
