    Question Restore as new iphone or from backup?

    Maybe a dumb question, but I'm a little confused with my iphone.

    Its a JB(redsnow) 3g, on 3.0.1 and its getting a little buggy - apps quitting, sluggish etc. so I thought I should erase and start again. Here's where it gets foggy for me:

    If I get hold of a new 3.0.1 IPSW and restore as new iphone (DFU mode or otherwise), thus cleaning out any unwanted bits and bobs, can I then sync with itunes, get my contacts and apps back from an old backup then JB and cydia? Or will syncing with an old backup put everything back on my phone, or is it just the legit apple stuff and contacts etc. that get put back on?

    Thanks for any help

    restore as new iphone so you get rid of the bugs your having now, then restore the contacts and apps and later JB to get cydia

    I'm not so sure I'd do it in that order... mainly because I've never had much luck with jailbreaking after all of my info is synced to the iPhone - everytime I've tried it that way I get stuck in an endless reboot cycle.

    My advice is to jailbreak after the OS is restored and prior to syncing any personal info on the phone. After jailbreaking it sync and activate your iPhone - and do it as a new phone not from a backup, then resync your apps, media, contacts, and other data.

    It's easy to get back to the exact way your phone was before restoring, but they don't really guide you through it, which is super annoying...
    1. Restore from iPhone backup
    2. After restore is complete, "SYNC" or "APPLY CHANGES" and voila, all your apps are re-uploaded and in the same folder you had them in before.
    I was freaking out after restoring and saw only one page of factory apps. But once I hit "sync" everything came back.
    Your iTunes remembers your preferences but apparently when you "restore" it's only to factory settings. To get back your extra apps, folders, wallpaper/skin etc.. you have to sync to finish the job.
    Restoring also fixed my original issue, which was my phone having 3GB of phantom data even though I had deleted almost everything off the phone. I was told by Apple tech that it was a known glitch after the 6.1 OS update and restore would resolve it. Was stoked that it worked!

    Your iPhone data can be restored from iCloud backup when setting up a new device, or after erasing all data from a device using Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Content and Settings.
