    I upgraded from 7.1.1 which I had Jailbroken, to iOS 8 and it has left behind the status bar from a theme (Soft), is the only way to remove this to restore my phone, re-Jailbreak remove the tweak, and then upgrade again? Or is there an easier way, I've already rebooted like 5 times and nothing.

    If you restore the phone and then put the back up onto it, the theme won't carry over, reason it carried over is because you upgraded.

    not true whats above. status bar themes transfer over from device to device. you have to se up as new, also its a bad idea to go from jailbroken ios and upgrade it. you must restore first.

    I was not aware you could update, while jailbroken. Yes, I would recommend restoring, and setting up as new.

    If I set up as new, am I able to extract some of the backup or am I completely stuck here?

    well you can sync apps, photos, music etc back over, but data is lost like sms, and game progress.

    Somehow, I got rid of it by backing up my phone, DFU restoring to iOS 7 (original plan was to re-Jailbreak and use the backup from the day before and remove the tweaks then update, but iTunes is wank at looking after backups) then downloading the beta again and loading the backup I made just before DFU, expecting it to be in the same semi jail broken state. But it's actually all clean, and I even gained some storage space. I can only assume that iTunes will only backup Apple recognised files or something (thank ****)
