    I'm about to attempt upgrading from 6.1 to 6.1.2 using PKGbackup
    PKGBACKUP - User Guide

    I'm backing up to both iCloud & manual local iTunes backup just in case.

    I'll do the DFU restore/upgrade to 6.1.2, I'll then restore my standard apps/data via either iCloud or iTunes. I'll try iTunes, but last time I used iTunes to restore my data and apps, the icons were ALL over the place. (lost their location) iCloud restores seem to go smoother.

    Once I'm happy things are looking normal, I'll jailbreak once again. I'll then use PKGbackup to restore my Cydia stuff.

    PKGbackup seems to backup ALL my apps (even local Apple AppStore data) so as a worst case scenerio I guess I will only Jailbreak the Clean Vanilla restored iPhone 5. It backs it all up to my DropBox cloud too nicely. You can do a selective restore of what you want

    To be honest I'm still a bit confused on what the best practice here is, I'll just give it a go and see what works. I have multiple backups all over and can try again as needed.

    Honestly, the "Best Practice" is really to DFU Restore > Setup the iPhone as New > Then Jailbreak > then re-setup your apps, folders, & multimedia via syncing.

    Yes, you're starting completely from scratch, yes I realize that many consider this a PITA, but it is the "Best" way. Can you do it other ways? Yes, but the absolute "Best" way is the way I just described (& the way I do my phone with each update & jailbreak).

    The thing is, I've been an iPhone user for so many years, I'm not about to lose all my AppStore settings/data just for JailBreak.

    Ok now I know trying to keep all AppStore data/settings is not "best" practice, but it seemed ok the past week on 6.1 (so I'll try it again on 6.1.2)

    I guess since PKGbackup backs up ALL my AppStore data/settings, I could go that route. (clean restore, jailbreak, restore app data via PKGbackup, then reinstall those apps one at a time via AppStore) The next biggest pain is getting on my groups I created for the many apps I have organized once again.

    Decisions Decisions, Trial Error here I go. I noticed the Official Evati0n instructions make no mention of best practice DFU restore.

    I just had a most HORRIBLE experience with PKGBackup. It doesn't say in Cydia that its iOS6 ready. And I guess it's not. Boot loop disaster after I restored from a PKGBackup restore. BEWARE!! The only thing that worked was - DFU Restore--> Jailbreak 1.4--> Restore from Backup to get all apps and data and chat sessions back / photos.. THEN load Cydia stuff one by one dude. Trust me!! I have lots of Cydia tweaks. Only took me 20 minutes in Cydia to get it all back. 'twas a NIGHTMARE using PKG. Don't do it!! Unless you want to totally waste your time.

    Don't forget to back up Themes and iWidgets and all the rest to your computer with iFunBox before restoring. If PKG worked as it has in the past - it's a huge timesaver. But not in 6.

    Consider yourself warned.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Try again with the 6.1.1 and then upgrade, or download 6.1.2 from a different source, there are websites that host the official file or have the link for the file, maybe your is corrupted.

    I meant, the readme that comes with Evasi0n does't say we should blow the phone away to barebones with no AppStore or AppData installed. The instructions say to make sure you back things up, and then goes right into jainbreaking. (no mention of having to do a vanilla DFU based recovery)

    Ok maybe I won't try it then. (was just about to before reading replies here one last time)

    Hmmm so are you saying we can still restore our AppStore Apps/data AFTER we jailbreak??? I thought once you do any type of backup restore you lose Cydia. (help me understand) If this is true, then it's not a big deal I'll be able to keep everything, just didn't know. People were saying you had to start over from scratch and save nothing.

    If not, I guess I need to jailbreak AFTER the AppStore/Data restore via iTunes (like I usually do, with all jailbreaks)

    I'd rather do what's best though for maximum stability so please chime in and let's get this cleared up for me and everyone else

    Everything is saved in your local or iCloud backup, so far you only need to sync the apps back to your phone (mines used to autodownlaod with iCloud) and for Cydia you need to manually download every tweak you had but if it had custom settings they will be added from the backups.

    Yes there was a fix but if you still have app sync it won't work.

    Your apps and data are saved in an iTunes backup. Jailbreak right after system restore - then after jailbreak do a restore backup from iTunes to get back your apps and apps data. Some will say little bad things can saved in an iTunes backup so you should add apps back manually from within your iTunes sync window rather than do a restore back up. But then you 'rightly ask' "where's my app data" to which you rarely get a good answer around here. Getting your app data back is practically impossible without an involved super tech-ey step that ill leave others to explain. I personally have done iTunes restore from backups since iPhone 2G with no problems.
    Steps:
    Restore to new firmware
    Jailbreak (do it at this point because jail breaking a nearly empty phone is faster.)
    Restore from iTunes backup (last one that saved all your stuff)(you will NOT lose Cydia)
    Reload Cydia stuff one by one
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    • Reload Cydia stuff one by one

    There we go folks, why is this kind of info not ever talked about? (or at least in the Readme) This makes sense now instead of letting people assume on their own thanks.

    So I actually did the jailbreak AFTER the full restore from iTunes. (and so far so good)
    I also restored all my Cydia apps & settings via PKGbackup. I made sure to disable ALL other restore options PKGbackup offers and only restored the Cydia apps, and sources. Everything cydia related was restored, rebooted, and wham my phone is just like it was before!

    Things are zippy and I tested the heck out of everything with no problem so far.

    In the future, I'll try it the way you explained above though
