    I read that OTA updates can cause trouble, I have OTA 7.0.4, should I restore my iPhone 5S?

    Can I backup to iTunes, restore iPhone, jailbreak the phone, then restore from my backup? does it ruin the jailbreak?

    And thanks.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Yes, do a restore.
    And then like you mentioned restore from backup.

    Fwiw I always restore and set up as new. It's a pita but I know everything is clean.

    What applejuiced said is just fine of course.

    Okay, thanks for the quick response!

    I thought about that, but "starting over" after flashing a custom ROM on Android was a massive pain in the a**, I don't think I want to "start over" again, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Me too. I always start from an absolutely clean system.
