    Default Switch from iPhone 4S to iPhone 5.
    Hello everyone, I am making the switch from an iPhone 4S to the iPhone 5 once T-Mobile launches their iPhone 5 release. Which means I have to make the switch (tedious process). But I do have a few questions about the switch and I hope you guys can answer some.

    iPhone 4S = 16 gb, jailbroken (with purchased Cydia apps), unlocked on iOS 5.1.1 with GEVEY sim (originally a Sprint iPhone 4S)

    iPhone 5 = 16 gb, jailbroken?, newest iOS, T-Mobile network

    What do you guys think will be the biggest transition?
    Can I jailbreak my iPhone 5? (I was thinking with evasi0n but I want some advice) Is it a hard process?
    I backed up my data from the 4S on my iCloud and computer. Can I just restore the backup data to the 5? Can I also do the same thing for the Cydia applications? (if I do manage to jailbreak)

    For the iPhone 5, you can jailbreak it with Evasion, but only if it comes with lower IOS, like 6.1.2, 6.0.2.
    6.1.3 can not be jailbroken. And it's very easy.

    There's a Cydia app called PkgBackup that can back up all your Cydia apps so when u do get it jail broken I 5 you can use that to restore your Cydia apps on new phone.

    PkgBackup has known issues, it's better just to re-install all your tweaks.
