Do you usually restore from a jailbroken backup or setup as new?

    Hello, with the new greenposis0n jailbreak out just wondering ifs its better to set up as new iPhone or restore from a backup? What are you guys planning to do? Don't want to lose all my videos in the camera roll and game saves. Anyone restore from a backup and not having any issues like battery drain, etc? By the way the backup is from jailbroken firmware 4.1

    It's probably better to restore as a new device, but you will loose your game data.

    Couldn't you use "AppBackup" in order to preserve game data?
    This is mainly what I'm concerned about keeping when upgrading devices.

    I like to setup as new.
    Just incase I dont inherit any bugs or issues from previous firmwares backups etc
    Seems to run alot smoother and faster than restoring from backup IMO.
