Is there a way that i can back up all the apps msgs etc before upgrading the rom?
Welcome to the forums!
I moved your question in the Hero "All things root" subforum, where you are the most likely to receive an answer.
I take it you mean the official 2.1 update, not a custom firmware one? The official OTA update should keep everything in tact, but just in case...
SMS Backup & Restore
Astro - Will only save the apps, not their data. So everything will be a fresh install).
Backup Pro (Free 30 day trial) - The most comprehensive backup for non rooted phones, but obviously is only useful for a month.
Do you have them all saved as google contacts?
