    Hi peeps need a lil help I'm horrible with tech etc can build up an engine but ain't got a clue about software updates etc

    I've basically had my 3GS few years just now I've just got a message from my whatsapp saying my phone is too old as it's still running 4.0 version. It's been jailbroken and I've got all my apps etc which I've downloaded some time ago

    I need whatsapp so I'm going to have to dive in and update, q is I've never done it before, is it simply plugging into the comp iTunes and update to latest version?

    Will I loose all my pics, apps, whatsapp messages if I update it?

    Any help much appreciated

    You would need to perform a backup first. Manually back it up, don't rely on the back up when plugging in your iPhone to your computer. As for WhatsApp messages, you'll need to manually extract those using FTP or rooting through USB like iExplorer or iFunBox. Then you can restore using iTunes. it's recommended that you use DFU mode to do so.

    I thought that since it synced with itunes, the whatsapp files also backed up?

    I agree.... Whats the point of backing up your iDevice with iTunes, to then use another method to save messages....

    iTunes backup done properly should "backup" everything.....?
