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

    http://bit.ly/restoreicloud

    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 http://bit.ly/restoreicloud 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 http://bit.ly/restoreicloud 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.

    You will need to connect to a PC/Mac to start the RESTORE process. Once it is done you will then be able to restore iPhone from iCloud.

    Make sure you have your iPhone plugged into your Computer (via iTunes) or you are on a WiFi network otherwise, it won't complete the reset until you are connected.

    Once iTunes detects the phone, select RESTORE.

    During the reset, "everything" is erased, settings are set back to factory defaults and iOS is reinstalled.
    When the phone restarts, set it up as new and follow the prompts or restore from your most recent backup within iTunes or from iCloud.
    Then reinstall all of your apps, music, setup iCloud to sync your Contacts, Reminders, Calendar, Notes, etc.

    Thank you
