Hi guys. I realize this is a newbie two-part question, but I've searched and haven't been able to find any helpful answers. So I thought I'd try these otherwise excellent forums.
First part: I jailbroke my iPad a few days ago and am loving it (Spirit worked for me, for some reason, despite having iTunes 9.2 installed). I backed up my iPad as per standard advice, but I'm afraid that iTunes backup will be overwritten. I know the date it was made, so I can identify it. Is there a way to preserve that backup somewhere on my Macbook? I'm (perhaps irrationally) afraid that it's going to be overwritten, so I'd like to copy it somewhere if possible. So how do I find it? How to I secure it? Etc.
Second part: I know that Spirit hasn't been updated for 3.2.1 firmware yet. But when it is... How do I go about backing up my iPad, including all the stuff I've dumped on it since I jailbroke it? Basically, I'd like to back it up, restore it to factory, apply my legit pre-jailbreak backup, update it, re-jailbreak it, then restore from the jailbroken backup so that I don't have to go about finding and setting up all the third-party apps etc that I've installed. Any way to do this?
Thanks in advance, and thanks for the great forums!
