    So my 4s is JB on 5.0.1. Let's say I want to go back to stock. I do a restore as new iPhone. I lose all my contacts, pics, app placements, etc?

    Backup your contacts using iCloud.

    All of your folders and icons will be sorted and organized identically to your previous state.

    restoring your iphone does not leave a trace of a jb. you'll have to re-jb
