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.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    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.
