    Will restoring my iPhone to a previous backup disable the evasion jailbreak? The previous backup does have the current evasion jailbreak.

    No, the jailbreak will not be retained. You'll have to run it again.

    If I have to restore my phone, I always start fresh if possible. Especially if I was jailbroken.

    That is not correct, restoring an itunes backup does not break evasi0n.
    A firmware restore does break evasi0n, the two a very different.

    So I can restore to a previous backup and my jailbreak will still be on my iPhone? I do have the latest firmware 6.1.2

    Yes, if you restore from a backup, your jailbreak will still be on your iphone

    It's very straightforward for the restoration. Simply follow these procedures:

    1. Simply right-click on the device in iTunes and select "Restore from backup…".

    2. You can then select the backup copy you want to restore. Once you select the correct backup copy, hit the "Restore" button and iTunes will restore your iPhone.

    That's it. In case you face similar situation as my friend, try to recover iPhone data from older backup.

    What happens if you get "iTunes could not restore the iPhone because it is locked with a passcode".... Anyone know how to get around this please?

    Restoring from a backup does not fix being stuck in recovery mode as far as I know
