    When doing a "restore" to my iPhone in iTunes, does the data come back automatically (i.e. notes, stocks, settings, usage stats)?

    I don't want to do a restore (in order to upgrade) if I can't get my stuff back easily. I've just never done a restore and I'm not sure what happens.

    Yeah, the option to restore your previous settings is great. All your notes, stocks, weather settings, even your alarm settings and auto birghtness levels are restored....

    A piece of cake my friend.

    And it's the same with an unlocked/jailbroken phone as well. Once it's up and running it will give the option to resore your previous settings.

    I have a similar question:

    If I have a jailbroken phone, can I sync my phone up with iTunes before I restore, so that it will save all my settings just before you wipe it clean? My concern is syncing the phone with iTunes if I have used Ziphone 2.5 to jail-break it. Thanks for your help!

    You can definitely still sync it with iTunes even if it's jailbroken. Glad to help (since I was helped too!).

    Absolutely you can.

    I have a jailbroken phone which is also unlocked and there is no issue with iTunes at all. Syncs and reads the iPhone with no issues.

    I appreciate the responses. I was hoping that I wouldn't be limited to the music selection I currently had on the phone previous to jail-breaking it. However, I was hesitant to try and sync it in the event that iTunes might recognize the jail-break and make me restore it back to factory settings.

    Again, thanks for the replies.

    Yep, open ZiPhone 2.5GUI and click on Refurbish and this will reset it back to the factory setting as if you just bought it, Apple would'nt know that its been Activated/jailbroken/unlocked.

    Restore jailbroken iPhone

    Hello,
    I have a jailbroken iPhone and installed a third-party application and mi iPhone died, now it doesnt turn on anymore. Im wondering if I can just restore it with iTunes? If I do that will I lose all my applications?
    Thank you :(

    Had a similiar issue with u 2 weeks back. I cant fire up the iPhone and it keeps stating that there is no SIM card present - connected to itunes it just yields the same result. Had to do a reset via DFU mode, restored to 2.2 - all my official apps and settings were there, but 3rd party jailbroken apps are gone. So I had to re-jailbreak it and download from cydia once again.

    Really? I had problems with this in the past. So if I do a backup in itunes first, then upgrade to 2.2, after that if I restore, all my iapps store iapp data will still be around? Hmm, is it because I've been going the pwnagetool route and restoring, when I should do the upgrade from JBed 2.1 to stock 2.2, then use quickpwn on it? I just don't want to loose my game data every time I upgrade the firmware, heh.
