Woeful battery situation!
Hi JB folks,
About a month ago I JB my iPhone and, of course, my battery life was sucky which I expected. However, I recently restored the phone back to its original condition but it seems the battery has never gone back to the way it was before the JB. Is that possible or am I imagining it? Anyone else have that experience?

This happened to me when I JB last year with iOS 3.1.3 on my 3GS with Spirit. After I restored, Apple gave me a new one as it had issues holding a charge. When I JB with Greenpois0n on iOS 4.2.1 with my iPhone 4, my battery was fine after. With my issues with my 3GS, it may not have been related to the JB. It could have just my battery going bad. No way to really know
So, if I go into an Apple store and tell them my iPhone 4 won't hold a charge:
1. Will they be able to tell it was once JB?
2. Will they replace it since I've only had it since Sept?
3. Am I a cheating scumbag if I do it knowing I probably caused the problem?

They wont be able to tell as long as you do a restore on the device before you take it back to the shop.
As for the eligibility, since you got it in September, you are still under Apple's default 1 year protection plan.
Just state your problem and hope you get an exchange

If the above is true, how might one approach Jailbreaking in the future?
I'm a first time JBer myself, and I would like to keep battery problems to a minimum.
How does one backup their iPhone then? Since backing up through iTunes while jailbroken saves all the JB settings as well, how do we prevent that whilst also backing up our SMS contacts etc?

I actually found out how to backup contacts manually through SSH.
Obviously needs to be JBen.
AddressBook.sqlitedb for contacts only; and
AddressBookImages.sqlitedb for their respective contact photos.
Copy them to desktop or somewhere on the computer. After restoring as new, JB again, and replace them back into the same dir.
Not sure about other things like SMS. But for anyone wishing to restore any phone, contacts are probably the most important things to backup.
