    Your post makes no sense. Each sentence is unrelated to the prior.

    After a restore you have to reenter the passwords

    A firmare restore and a restore from backup are two different things.
    The former is a factory wipe, the latter restores info such as app settings, wifi passwords, contacts, pictures, text messages and call history on iPhone, calendars, and other similar stuff.
    Shift click the restore from backup to select the backup file of another device

    Funny, my new iPhone autoconnected to the house once I restored it from the old ones backup.

    Until something goes wrong and you get battery drain or crashes all the time from left over code.

    Always recommended to do a setup as new than do a restore from backup.

    Agreed. I always have a flawless jailbreak after setting up as new. I always reenter my wifi password shortly after.

    When you jailbreak it leaves pieces of code that can carry over in the backups. When a new jailbreak is out it uses a different code so then they may end up conflicting with each other. Or apps/mods from Cydia do the same thing.

    Even the same software can be different on what the exploit contains.
