    Hey all,

    If I sync my phone with my new computer, I realize it erases everything and replaces with the new library but my question is:

    Do I also lose my jailbreak tweaks or do those remain intact? Does syncing with iTunes only affect content from iTunes or will it also delete any apps I had installed through Cydia?

    You can sync your phone with a new computer and not have everything erased; read here.

    In terms of your jailbreak tweaks, nothing should be deleted when you sync with a new computer. I'm not sure about the apps installed through cydia though.

    Yeah, that I realize. I already transferred purchases. I tested with my iPad last night.

    Couldn't restore backup. I chose to backup but seems like backup data also stores which computer it is synced to and so when I would do a restore backup, I'd get the alert again that the device is synced with another computer.

    As for the jailbreak, same issue. If I did a restore backup, the jailbreak is left intact but if not, none of the cydia tweaks (or cydia itself) would open.
