OS 4.3 jailbreak help
Sorry if duplicate post, not having luck finding answer:
I have a Iphone 4 jailbroken with greenp0ison. If I upgrade to 4.3 and jailbreak with redsn0w should I restore to origional settings BEFORE upgrading to 4.3?
Any help is appreciated.

My iPhone 4 was jailbroken on 4.2.1 with greenp0ison... I upgraded the iPhone to 4.3.1 (had to work through the 1013 error by modifying host file) and then restored from my most recent backup. I then ran the redsn0w jailbreak and all is fine. Some people will tell you to update your iPhone to 4.3.1 and restore as a new phone (don't use a backup) -- and this is fine and but you will lose all your app data.

No do not restore as new, to me it's like the Windows format and re-install it should be a last option. The way I see it if you restore from your backup and your phone has problems you have the option of redoing the JB and setting up as new so why choose the option the first time? So just click upgrade it will upgrade you to the latest firmware then you JB with redsn0w. The main thing is do a backup and a sync before you start the process. In the end it is your choice either method will work so it's up to you to decide. If you are OCD and you want a nice clean phone then restore as new then JB. If you want convenience then upgrade and reJB.

every new iOS that i put on my device i will restore as new before i jailbreak. lets admit, not all tweaks/apps out there are written very well. i have actually carried over bugs restoring from a backup
i am not a BIG gamer on my device so saving game data isn't that big of a deal to me. although, saving game data is very easy as well as other data
like you have mentioned it is a personal preference, which i have no problem taking the time to restore as new and everything involved after doing it
sometimes i will do it after a long tweaking session (couple days or so) call it useless and me crazy, but i like to start fresh... A LOT
*just curious, what do you guys suggest when someone runs into a debacle like when 4.3 came out and A LOT of people were running into MAJOR battery issues? or any major battery issues at that matter?
