I have searched around, and seen several different methods on this, just looking from the opinions of the best way to do this. ... I'm putting in a bigger hard drive in the laptop, and going to do a clean install, starting over clean from scratch. My phone is jailbroken, & I have a ton of stuff on it. I'm looking for your opinions on the BEST software / method of being able to do a new install of iTunes, and being able to save all of the data/ settings on my phone. And having everything stay as it was before the new hard drive. I don't want to have to start over from scratch on the phone. Basically, I want to be able to backup everything on my phone into a new iTunes install, then just re-sync everything back to normal. But from what I've heard, if I just plug in my phone to a new install of iTunes, I will loose everything??? I've read several differnt ways of doing it, I just want to make sure I choose the best one. I don't want to take any chances of screwing it up, and loosing everything. Any sugestions would be appreciated.
