i bought my phone nearly 2 years ago pre JB/ unlocked with snow breeze. currently it is still 3.1.2 and modem 5.11.7.

i never updated as i relied on the unlock it was originally on o2 but i am on orange. im now edging 11 pages of apps and need to update to make use of folders but retain the baseband as they call it.

am i right i need to
download itunes,
download cydia pkgback up.
back up in pkgbackup.
backup in itunes, - but this was referring to 4.1 but as of today there is 4.2?
exit itunes
run tinyumbrella
start ssh server
load itunes
update in itunes
let it fail
kick out of dfu in tinyumbrella
exit tiny umbrella
let itunes re recognise iphone
restore from itunes
then run
then re run pkgbackup


also i want to keep wallpaper background in spring board also. if i enable this via redsnow. how much will it affect performance? ( i use to use winterboard to stick spring board wall papers on but i deleted it after the novelty wore off for performance)
