    I don't want to lose ANYTHING (songs, videos, contacts, pictures, etc etc...)

    So should I just "sync" my phone before I jailbreak?
    I know from what little research I've done that it will build me a custom IPSW file.. will that contain all my data?

    Once its been jailbroken, can I just restore using that file?

    Sorry, and I am going to go read all the FAQs now. =)

    do backup, after j/b right click on your iphone in itunes then restore from backup. custom IPSW file is just a firmware file.
