    Anyway to keep SMS/App data?

    Say, through SSH maybe?

    I want to set it up as a new iphone, synching with an old backup would defeat the purpose :)

    If you're setting up a new phone in hopes to improve performance, first try restoring your iPhone from backup then going to settings-general-reset-reset all settings. It resets all databases but keeps your call logs, SMS, email, etc. I do it after every upgrade and no complaints here.
