hi, ive got a 3g 16gb with 2.1firmware. its jailbroken and unlocked. at present its hanging a lot with sms and other apps, i want to upgrade the firmware but that means i'll have to re-install my apps, and in some cases like bitesms the newer version reqires u to buy the licence, is there a way to backup your apps then maybe re-install from backup? the other thing is i only want to jailbreak and not unlock as i'm going to remain with the same carrier, what firmware can i go upto

All those licenses are tied to you imei, so they should activate just fine with the new firmware. If you are staying with an official carrier you can upgrade to 2.2.1.
