    Default iTunes restore for jailbroken phone

    I hope this is the right forum... I just need advice/help.

    I have a Verizon iPhone 4 and I jailbroke it (as of a month ago or so). I am new to iPhone and jailbreaking. My computer that had all my iPhone back-ups was stolen recently. I just got a new computer and installed iTunes.
    My questions are... is there any way iTunes has my previous back-ups in the Cloud or when I first plug my iPhone into iTunes will it recognize it's a jailbroken phone? Also, if iTunes does not have the previous back-ups in the Cloud, but only on my stolen PC, does that mean iTunes will only restore to the point it is at now (jailbroken)?

    Your backups will be in iCloud only if YOU set it up to use iCloud; it's not automatic. You can do this now in Settings>iCloud. If you use iTunes to Restore the iOS without using a backup you'll lose your jb.
