    Hi guys,

    i would like to know,if and how i can backup my jailbroken system from my old iphone to my new.
    reason: my iphone got lots of problems,as i became it i alreary wondered,that i must push the homebutton very hard,it didnt care about that,later i saw that when i put the cable in,the slot in the device is awry,also no problem,but now i checked,that it rattles when i shake it,there is dust under the displayglass and the glas is also not glued properly,so i want a new one.
    but my biggest problem is that i took a lot of time to optimize it for my needs,i dont want to spend the same time again on the new device so back to the question,is it possible to just copy the one os and all apps,settings etc from one device to the other one,so i dont need to search all apps again,make setting etc? if yes,how i can make it?
    maybe for you idevice pros its a stupid question but im not sure,if its done with just backing it up in itunes and then just synchronize it to the new one.

    thanks, Wilson

    No .... There are methods to copy the entire contents, but they won't work after a restore.

    The best backup/restore methods use a combination of iTunes for Apple Stuff and one or more Cydia utilities for jailbroken apps & tweeks. Check out PkgBackup, AppBackup, AptBackup. All of these will assist to restore Cydia apps.

    The easiest (and quickest) way to return to stock mode is to restore.

    Note: Those who have installed the iPad 6.15.x baseband must use a different technique because iTunes will report a baseband update error.
