    Hello, I have a question about Jailbreak:

    *Can I do iCloud Backups with Jailbreak? And, if I can, can I use this backup to restore a non-Jailbreak iPhone if I give jailbreak up?

    *Is my iPhone 5 going to be as slow as my iPhone 4 (with the Redsn0w jailbreak)?

    *Does anybody have any tips to prevent a slow phone with jailbreak?

    Yes, you can use iCloud on a JBed iPhone and there's no problem using a backup from a JBed iPhone to restore to a non-JBed state, but I wouldn't recommend it. Reason being that you will get quite a lot of leave behinds from the Jailbreak in that restore copy, which potentially can cause problems later on

    No, it will not be slow.

    Yes, you can still do icloud backups and everything will get backed up aside from the jailbreak tweaks. When you get a new phone you can restore from the backup and your current phone you would have to sync to itunes to get the jailbreak off first, then could restore from icloud.

    Won't the iCloud servers recognize the jailbreak files and "ignore" them? And if it doesn't, can I do an iTunes backup and get a clean backup?

    For instance, if you change your carrier name/icon using something like FakeCarrier and restore that iPhone backup to an non-jailbroken iPhone the hacked carrier name will remain the same on the non-jailbroken iPhone. **** gets passed on and it's near impossible for anyone but people like chpwn or thelatinist to say what that is :)

    ICloud or Tunes doesn't matter, it's the same
