I Think I May Need To Restore

Hello. I'm having a problem with my iPhone 4S. Whenever I try to add new music, it gets stuck on "waiting for items to copy" and stays there until I stop it. Nothing gets transferred from iTunes onto my iPhone, which sucks. All the reading I've done on Apple's forums points to a full restore. However, I'm waiting to jailbreak my iPhone on iOS 5.0 because I know the jailbreak under development won't work on 5.0.1.

If I do a full restore, I'll automatically get updated to 5.0.1, right? I know it wasn't possible to save SHSH blobs on 5.0 so there's no way I could go back. Does anyone know of a different technique to fixing this issue? Or will I have to restore?

Thanks everyone.

Edit: When I cancelled it this time, I got this picture:

Does that mean it's a problem with my computer?.. That'd be weird, since I just got this MacBook Pro a couple of months ago.

I usually drag and drop into iTunes library then drag onto device from there.Is it possible for you to do this? I always manually manage all my music and videos because syncing takes way too long and always messes it up.
Hope this helps.
