    I bought a jailbroken 4s and would like to restore my contacts, texts, etc. from my old 4 to this new phone without losing the JB. Is it possible to restore the 4s with a recent backup from my 4 without losing the jailbreak?

    I tried just putting my itunes account info into the phone and I did get my contacts to enter, but I'd like all my texts and settings to transfer too. If this is possible, I need some basic instructions because I've only ever had to right click and restore from backup, so this is all new.
    Thanks!

    I tried that with the 4s connected to iTunes, but it does not show the backup from my 4 available. Is there a way to force it to look for the 4 backup?

    Thanks!
