    I have the iphone 1.1.4 jailbroken with ziphone. Its been syncing with itunes perfect for sometime now, but just today I dont know what happened, but now when I go to sync it's asking me do I want to set up my iphone as a new phone or from backup! I am afraid to do anything at this point cause I dont want to ersase what I have on my iphone. If I choose "from backup" will this restore or delete what jailbroken programs I already have on my phone? My iphone is operating perfect as a jailbroken phone but I cant sync with itunes because of the above issue. Can I choose restore from backup WITHOUT loosing my jailbroken programs?

    Sounds Like you might have synced another iPhone on your iTunes, so yes if you select the option to setup your iPhone from Back-up then it will restore the last backup with your contacts etc etc, if you select sync as new phone then it will delete your old backup and create a new one, whatever contacts you have on iPhone will be backed up to outlook or whatever you select. In any case you will have to re-install all your Progs etc etc but your phone will obviously remain unlocked and JailBroken, unless you Shift+Restore.
    Cheers Sean.

    Hi Sean,
    No I only have one iphone. If I do a restore from backup, will it restore my iphone to factory default? Will I loose my jailbroken programs? Will I have to run Ziphone again to jailbreak the phone? My last successful backup was yesterday.
