    IMO it's always better to set up as a new phone, as some of the bugs you're experiencing could be restored to the device through the backup.

    Should just need to restore as new phone, put your personal data back on, and go from there.

    how do you restore as a new phone, then put your last back up back on it. i have never done that before.

    After you restore your phone it usually asks you if you would like to restore from backup, or setup as new phone.

    Restoring from backup will give you a list of backups you can pick from. In iTunes on the left side where is displays your phone - right click - restore to backup

    Shouldn't. What bugs were you having before anyway? I do not have any, but be aware many JB apps are NOT yet iPhone 4 ready. Themes are broken, small icons, etc

    Because you restored from your JB backup.
    Restore and setup as new next time.
    Nothing will be there.

    As I noted, you would need to restore to a backup prior to JB. Do a full restore, then when the phone is empty restore to a backup PRE JB

    You will have to restore again and then it will ask you if you want to restore from backup or setup as new.

    Yes, on itunes go to edit/preferences/devices and you should see device backups listed there.

    That would work, but make sure you pick a backup time that was pre-JB

    No, dont choose the backup at all.
    Just setup as new.
    Every time you restore from backup you will get the same things back again.

    Thats correct.
    If you synced your contacts with address book on your computer thru itunes you can sync them back.
    Also apps, music, ringtones and many others you also sync back thru itunes.
    Texts, and saved app data will be gone.

    If he setup as new, then reverted to a backup that was created BEFORE he jailbroke then he should be fine. Thats so he would not have to recreate all his folders, settings, etc.

    Yes, correct.
    If he got previous restore points he can click the little drop down arrow when he selects restore from backup to select any earlier version. It will display the date it was done on.

    NOOOOOOOO :D
    After you restore from that old preJB backup you dont setup as new.
    You're doing the same vicious cycle.
    You either restore from backup or setup as new.
    You cant do both.
    Im done for the night:D
