    The best way to do all this is with Chronus - I've had your problem before. You need to change the permissions on your contacts folder and all files within.

    Chronus does not cause this problem - so next time... use chronus.
    ok. I will remember that. So how do I fix this? How do you change permissions?

    Thanks

    You don't need to fool with SSHing your contacts at all. As long as you sync with iTunes it will sync your contacts with Outlook or Windows Contacts automatically. Assuming you're on a PC of course.

    The easiest way to change your permissions is with iFile. I don't remember the exact way but I'm sure someone else here could elaborate. I know it's only a few button presses and you're done as opposed to fooling around with a command prompt and other unnessecary BS.

    Great Guide but I'm having a problem with my pictures. I previously have an iPhone 4 on 4.0.1 and got a new iPhone 4 on 4.2.1 from apple. Now on my previous phone I had backed up using appbackup and chronus. I did all the SSHing as stated in the guide. I set the new phone as "new" in iTunes and SSHed everything back into the phone and the JB went great. When it came time to look at my pictures in my cameraroll they weren't there and chronus and appbackup aren't bringing them back. I'm really at a loss here.

    could I confirm with you..

    does a full factory reset delete all folders off your phone??

    I mean the ones left behind by cydia apps and any modifications you have made to your phone..

    like changing system icons via

    /system/library/coreservices/springboard.app

    not just any changes with winterboard

    does it actuall get rid of everything??

    cheers

    I assume you're speaking of a "restore to factory" in iTunes, which in that case, I believe yes it would delete all of those folders. It would make it like a brand new iPhone.

    This is very nice information. Many of users aware from this knowledge. And also this is a solution who can’t understand that how to use iphone. Jail breaking, is the process of removing the limitations imposed by Apple on devices running the iOS operating system through use of custom kernels.

    Confirmation needed.
    I have an I phone 4, I purchased it a year ago at future shop and bell is the service provider it came with 4.2.1 installed on it.
    A few days later a friend offered to jailbreak it for me as he had did his already with green poison untethered.
    So it has be awesome no problems at all this past year, this friend is no longer around and me being unsure how to do this never bothered with any of the i-tunes updates.
    I have yet to do any back-ups, I have not felt it necessary as i have not bought any apps through either Cydia or i-tunes.
    I do have a hand full of the free ones but never really played with the themes or tweaks.
    However i do wish to save my contacts etc, as i do not want to have to put them all back in again.
    I wish to update to 5.0.1 then re-jailbreak using redsnow. Im so glad i found this site its very informative, actually wish i had of found it a long time ago. I,m hoping to invest more time playing with this phone it appears there is just so much you can do with it in regards to tweaking it there are a few in cydia I wish purchase asap such as big u movies and gravity board very impressive.
    So my question is do i need to down load app backup and chronus and pkgbackup now before i do anything else i would not want to lose my shsh blobs that are listed at the top of cydia and my contacts as for most every thing else i don't mind starting over.
    if its recommended i will do itunes back up and down load one of or all of these now and back up too

    Sync your iphone contact with iTunes onto one of the four categories. The options are under info of iTunes. shsh blobs will not be erase if you do a restore.
    You can also drag out your photos folders onto computers once you plug it in. You should see an apple iphone drive and those are movies and photos .
    Once you have sync with iTunes , then you can restore to latest and jailbreak again. Setup as new iphone will also allow you to restore back contacts but not SMS

    I'm sick and tired of my jailbroken iPhone 5 crashing on a daily basis so I'm about to restore it. But before I do I was wondering if there were any way to restore it to 6.1 and not 6.1.2?

    I've read several posts about bad battery life, stuttering in the animations etc. on 6.1.2 so I'd like to keep my device on 6.1.

    And before you tell me that the crashes are caused by having many tweaks I only use Auxo, Zephyr and NCSettings.

    Appreciate the help guys!

    How to save iOS icon and folder layout Springboard Home Screen information when restoring as new as of iOS 8.1

    You need to be jailbroken for this to work.

    Transfer all your apps to iTunes so you can get them back.

    Backup the following file using iFile in the following directory: private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard
    IconState.plist

    Backup this file to dropbox using iFile.

    Restore iPhone as new. Sync apps back using iTunes. Re-jailbreak phone. Install iFile.

    To restore springboard organization, rename the backed up file IconState.plist to DesiredIconState.plist and then copy to private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard. Overwrite the existing file if necessary. Respring and springboard layout should be restored. Now all you have to do is go through the tedious process of logging into apps and setting the phone back up the way you like it.
