jailbroken apps without jailbreaking - READ
So here is my dilemma. I had a 3G that I loved, traded it for a Droid, got bored of that and decided I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
Bought a 3GS and wanted to install iBlacklist on it. Here is the problem, when I had my 3G it was jailbroken and unlocked and it ran slow which I attribute to the jailbroken software on it since otherwise it ran fine.
I read somewhere that you can jailbreak 4.0, download apps through **********, cydia, etc. and install them, sync with iTunes and back up the phone. Restore to normal OS 4.0 that is NOT jailbroken, then do a restore from backup and you'll have all your jailbroken apps and they will function.
Can anyone shed some light on this or is it all BS? I don't mind jailbreaking as long as it doesn't affect the performance/battery life like it did on my 3G.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

The only reason I figured it was possible is that when my 3G was jailbroken I downloaded "makeitmine" from Cydia. When I backed it up before I traded it I think it backed up makeitmine because when I went to restore to my 3GS and one of the apps I could reinstall was makeitmine.

Sorry no help for you trying to steal apps. Talk about cracked apps/warez/piracy is not allowed.
Makeitmine and some other status things stay because they are edited strings that stay when you backup.

cerote - do your homework buddy.
iBlacklist is a free/paid app depending on what version you get. I fully intend on buying it but I don't want to jailbreak my iPhone because of the performance loss when you load the new IPSW. The only way to get it is through Cydia since it is NOT on the AppStore.

I should have clarified although I figured everyone would understand what I was talking about since this IS the jailbreak forum.
Here is the basic version:
1. jailbreak 4.0
2. install apps from Cydia that are NOT stolen/cracked and cannot normally be obtained from the appstore
3. backup phone in itunes/sync so those apps get transferred
4. restore to normal 4.0 then restore from backup so you have your NON-stolen apps that you obtained through Cydia without depriving anyone of any money on your iphone without having to keep it jailbroken.

I am just saying that because you brought up the subject. If that was the plan all along then why even mention it on a forum that has the rules against it?
And no you can't pretty simple answer. It will actually make things worse from restoring from backup of a jailbreak to a normal firmware.

alexevo, you might want to consider the difference in speed you are noticing with your non-jailbroken 3Gs is the regular difference between 3G and 3Gs. I own one of each and there is a significant difference in speed as the 3Gs has higher hardware resources.

He answered your question, but I think the back and forth about the piracy may have over shadowed it.
A little side note: I dont know if it was SBSettings or MIM but I also don't have a clock on my phone now unless its locked, as that was also replaced with custom verbiage through a theme I was using with IBNYAFFA's clock / weather wedget. I suppose that could also happen for you if you restored.
Hope it helps.

That is why it is always best to setup as new instead of restoring a backup. A backup of a jailbroken device can cause more issues than just having it jailbroken. So it is always suggested to restore and setup as new instead of a backup.

If you have a new 3Gs and dont have your SHSH blobs stored on Cydia, you cant jailbreak anyways, at least until the new jb is released. As far as the performance issue, I had my 3Gs jailbroken with Spirit, had a ton of Apps from the appstore, numerous things dl'ed from Cydia, and never really noticed a decrease in my speed.
