    I want to do a fresh install of iOS 8.2, currently on iOS 8.1.2 (jailbroken)

    I have a backup on iCloud & PC (iTunes)

    I want to do a restore and restore backup of Contacts alone. I want to reinstall the apps not all

    How can this be done? If I restore from iCloud or iTunes everything gets restored.

    Any ideas?

    iTunes has tabs to restore individual content items (such as contacts, music, movies, ringtones, etc)

    You cannot restore individual items from a backup. If you only want to restore contacts, just make sure they are in iCloud.

    If you only want to restore certain apps, make sure only those apps are in itunes

    Reset your device > setup as new > sign into iCloud contacts and then sync your apps. Any app data will be lost however.
