    Default Upgrading to IOS7

    I dont see a post similar to this question.

    I want to upgrade to IOS7. MY current 4S is jailbroken. I dont really use the Jailbreak so I dont mind waiting for an IOS7 jailbreak to come out. (Even if it is months away). My question is Should I do the upgrade via ITunes? Will it cause a problem if it is done OTA?

    Sorry if this is a silly question but rather be safe than sorry.

    Do it via iTunes. And set up as new... don't restore from backup... all should be well.

    Just for clarifying: update to 7 and then restore as new OR restore iPhone (to remove jb), then update to 7 and proceed...

    My anxious mind is spinning, just want to make sure I take the right steps! Thanks kch!

    Restore to iOS 7 then when iTunes gives you the choice of "restore from a backup" or "setup as new" select setup as new. Then you can sync all your content back using iTunes

    Restore is the best way

    When I select Restore, will this restore my phone back to the original out the box condition 6.1.2 or the current IOS 7?

    My bad.. I know the answer. It will restore to factory settings then load IOS 7. Once that is complete, I will select restore backup right?
