    I want to set up my iPhone 4s as new because I forgot my iTunes backup password. I have my password. Backing up iPhone to icloud now.

    My plan is to set up the phone as new using iTunes as soon as I find out how to do this. Then restore the phone from the icloud backup. Then backup the phone to iTunes with encryption with a new iTunes password.

    Boot into recovery mode and reinstall iOS using iTunes.

    Well good news. I was finally able to remember the password to my original backup. Yes I did write that password down as soon as the restore started working.

    Not I have all of my backup passwords in one saved note. Now I am happy camper.
