    hey, question ....

    so i have an iPad 2 which i had jailbroken and i used the backup for my new iPad and it shows 1,2 GB as "others" does that mean all those cydia files (settings etc) are backed up with the official apple backup?

    i cant really do a clean install because i dont want to lose my gamescores (i wish apple would put those in the cloud btw)

    is there a cydia tweak or something to wipe out any jb related "leftovers"?

    Some things are carried over from a jailbroken backup to a non-jailbroken backup. In total summation is equals about 25MB at the very most and it averages around 5MB.

    It is usually emails, iMessages, texts, iCloud documents, system caches/files, Camera Roll media, OTA updates.
