    Now that the iPhone 4S is officially JB, can we continue to use iCloud backups (or is it not recommended)?

    Thanks.

    a word of warning however...backups can get funky with certain jailbreak tweaks installed. I'm not sure what causes it, and everything that causes an issue, but I can warn against the following things:

    custom carrier banners will be preserved by a backup, even onto a non-jailbroken phone

    hidden apps will remain hidden via backup onto a non-jailbroken phone, but with no way to install poof, you can't get them back.

    My advise to people in general is that if they ever choose to go back to being non-jailbroken, they install everything they installed via cydia, then back up one more time, THEN restore
