I heard that you shouldn't restore from a backup of a jailbroken device and should instead set up as new device. Is this true?
If i set it up as new what is the best way to copy the app data(for example gamesaves) and other stuff?

However, that cleanliness and better performance comes at a price: losing all your app data (such as game saves not backed up to iCloud) and SMS/text messages among other things... it's quite the conundrum. Some app data might possibly be manually copied over if you jailbreak your phone after restoring, but it's really a crap shoot at that point.

I've had pretty good luck transferring app data with iFunbox. It's free. Just used it to transfer from iPhone 5 to 5s. 99% was fine although I did have a couple apps it didn't work for. Unless your new device is jailbroken, i don't think SMS, call data etc is possible without using some sort of backup/restore util
