    Default Restoring from an iCloud backup after jailbreaking an iDevice as new



    Sure fire way to jailbreak without issues each time. Make sure you back up your iDevice to iCloud.

    If iDevice is not jailbroken then do the following:

    1. Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content and Settings.
    2. Follow to jailbreak as new and then restore from iCloud afterwards.

    If iDevice is already jailbroken then do the following:

    1. Restore iDevice from iTunes on PC. Do not restore from back up or sync after restore.
    2. Follow to jailbreak as new and then restore from iCloud afterwards.

    Does this restore all of your jailbroken apps too if the device is already jailbroken?

    No, you need a seperate tweak for that (I use PkgBackup). There are lots of cydia app back up options available.

    Good Luck!

    Default No.

    You would need to use something like pkgbackup for that. This just restores your iDevice settings and apps. Useful because recent jailbreaks like absinthe work better and faster when you jailbreak the device with a factory reset as your starting point.

    Just do the below mentioned settings and you are done....

    Go to settings -> general -> reset
    After this choose reset all settings option.

    Remember to do the settings twice for the changes to take effect. These steps will only manipulate the settings and your JB iPhone will remain in the same state. Now you can easily restore from iCloud without having to worry.
