    Ok so I think I messed up.

    I wanted to rejailbreak my 3gs since I had been experiencing some slow down. When It was jailbroken I had installed categories and SBSettings. I had all my games in a folder and had hidden some other files (such as Icy) using SBSettings.

    Well, I restored the 3gs. Than made it ra1n.

    It just finished and none of my games, nor cydia are showing up. They still seem to be hidden. HELP!!

    So I realized I had a backup that was done before I had done the JB so I put it in DFU and restored it again (I did not use DFU the first time) and now its back to normal. I don't know which part made it work this time.

    Why, when I restored it, did the iphone still retain some settings (i.e. hide cydia and games)? Shouldn't restore reset everything?

    Restoring your data from backup, instead of setting it up as a new phone is what kept the settings.

    If you set it up as new phone, what data is lost? Im assuming contacts, pictures, notes etc will be saved since they are on the computer, correct?

    It you restore you iPhone as a new iPhone everything is lost but you can put you pictures on to computer & sync them back same with apps & contacts.
