    I have an at&t iPhone 4s that is jail broken due to me using straight talk and needing mms. I want to back up and restore a sprint 4s from the AT&T 4s backup and it will complete and at last second it stays on a white spinning logo and black screen. Itunes recognizes but phone stays stuck. I tried to restore another sprint 4s I have and same exact thing. Tried backing up AT&T 4s again and restoring again and still no go. Could jailbreak be corrupting the backp? Any way to fix? I've never had problem and really need to keep my stuff.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Never had a prob with a JB backup before.
    But sometimes backups do become corrupt and unusable. Stock and JB ones also.
    Delete the backup that's giving you probs and create another one if you can and use that one.
