    You can sync form a back up to get your contacts music and stuff if that's what your asking.
    If you do a restore, you will remove the jailbreak/unlock and be set up as new. Hope this helps.

    You'll need to put your iPhone in DFU mode, connect to iTunes and restore.
    In case you need it here are instructions for DFU.

    After you restore, then begin the process all over again.


    INSTRUCTIONS
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connect and disconnect.
    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

    New Phone!!!!! always as a new phone. There could be a corrupt file in the previous, so always new phone to avoid problems in the jailbreak process. Then you can sync from a back up and get all you info back.
