    I have a jailbroken iPhone 4 and have been contemplating whether or not to restore my 4S from a backup of it. I'd really like to have all my old texts and things like that but don't want it to run slow or anything from the jailbreak.

    What I did was uninstall all the apps I don't use, all the pics I don't really care about and then I uninstalled all my jailbreak apps through cydia.

    Is that good enough to prevent any corruption carrying over into my new phone?

    I notice that my folders open up a little bit slow, theres a half a second lag from when i touch the folder to when it opens, is this normal for an iPhone 4 or is it because i used to have infinifolders installed?

    Don't have mine jailbroken so that will be interesting to see what happens. I think I'll just start clean to be safe, but I don't have any old texts I need saved like you do.

    I read somewhere yesterday that when someone restored from their. Ackup it deleted Siri. Let us know what happens if you go this route. He just restored it to factory default.
