    Question Transferring saved data for apps

    Hello, I have been jailbreaking for a while now, but i haven't figured out how to transfer data for my apps from jailbroken iphone to a clean restore. I have found this application that allows me to take the data from an app and save it. I figure from other articles and such that this would work. If i do this "removal and transplant" of save data, will there be traces of the jailbreak? even if i dont use any tweaks to hack or modify games?


    The app is called iExplorer*

    Default Transferring saved data for apps

    But im not sure that a stock device allows full access to the file system that iexplorer would need. ( but apparently it does! See below!)

    But no jailbreak info carried over

    Yes that will work as the apps folder shows on stock devices. I have used this method before. Just make sure to run each app once on your clean restore before restoring data, and to close them out before you copy any files over. This got the best results when I did it.
