    If I have a jailbroken iPhone 4s, and I go to back it up so that all my data will be current to move to an upgraded iphone 5s, will I lose the jailbreak on the 4s?

    Please help!

    I wouldn't back up a jailbroken phone.... I don't know if you can do that anyway.

    I feel like something would be corrupted in the process.

    I agree that it's not ideal, but I no longer have the computer that I backed my 4s up on before I jailbroke it... and I have added a lot more stuff- jailbroken and non jailbroken- since I jailbroke it. My intention is to back up the 4s now so that I can transfer all my legit stuff to my new 5s. I worry about corruption as well, but have not heard of any horror stories in all my searching today.

    I'm looking for any thoughts or suggestions from people who have been in my situation... Anyone?

    Thanks
