    try put it in DFU (switch off, hold both buttons for 10s, release power button while holding home button for another 10s)

    connect to itunes. restore. set up as new phone.

    p.s. repwn your firmware. check all 3 boxes in first option, BN check everything except update BL, uncheck installer, uncheck custom logos and build.

    Not a bug, iTunes won't backup or restore Cydia/Installer apps or any customized themes, etc.

    Mine did the same. In the end I just chose the new phone option. The apps and settings remained and it just re-synced the music. At least I didn't have to rearrange all my icons.

    Don't listen to any of those responses. You can restore from a backup. The next time it asks you to restore, restore from the back up and unplug it once it begins. This will solve your problem.

    How the hell did you keep your settings if you set it up as a new phone? What settings are you referring to? I did that and lost everything except my sync data.... very irritating.

    I wish somebody would write an app that would set us free from frickin iTunes in regards to backing up, restoring and syncing. Apple's solution is very poorly implemented.

    I'd pay money for that app, for sure. Any takers?

    This happens to me every time I jailbreak too. I just let it restore from backup, then reboot, and when it asks me to restore from backup again, I just set it up as a new phone. It has all my data/contacts/settings intact, and all I have to do is re-winterboard everything.

    I had the same problem, in the end I setup as a new phone.. but said no to automatic sync on connection to itunes.

    This all worked and my contacts/email settings were retained. I then sync'd all my music.

    Click the X just as it starts to sync... but I guess it's too late for that now. :p
