    How do I force my iPhone to make a backup before I start the jailbreak process?

    Plug your iphone to itunes. Right click on the iphone icon on the left and select backup.

    here is what i do :
    the things u sync with ur itunes are safe

    the only thing i need to backup for iphone that i dont sync with itunes is (for others iphones)

    addressbook
    notes
    sms
    bookmarks

    can be found here
    private/ var/ movile/ libraray/

    ( you can use disk aid to copy these folders to you computer and use diskaid again to put them back right there )
    open diskaid and choose root folder from the bottom left corner


    also u might want to copy all the images that u clicked on ur iphone to u computer


    hope this is what u asked for :p
    good luck

    note: i always prefer to setup iphone as a new phone after ever restore, this way u will have the latest preference files
