You should always make the theme you customize a child theme of the actual theme then all you have to do is update the main theme and merge changes and your customized theme stays intact.
Is there any tutorial how to do that? Cant i just upload newest version, make curent child of that and merge changes?

edit: didnt see post above [reading]
All i see is proper instalation and upgrade. I cant find anything with "i made mistake and edited original theme". Can i fix this or i need to delete everything and follow instructions above?
