    Default What to Backup?
    So after now the 10th or so restore I am pretty sick of manually putting everything back on my phone.

    I know iTunes backs up all my legit settings but what do I need to backup to get my jailbroken iPhone back to where it was without a lot of hassle.

    I am pretty sure I need to get my applications folder, themes folder, and any other folders like eBooks etc. What other folders and files need to be pulled off before a restore to make the process as quick as possible.

    Thanks ahead of time for any responses.

    Any files relevant to any mods you would want to make sure you get. I try and download as much from Cydia as I can, but any images, ROMs, etc you will want to get. iTunes will resync everything, although I advise setting up your phone as "a new phone" and not a backup, as it can cause issues. The only data that is not resorted because of this is camera roll photos, wifi passwords, and your settings. You will also after to resetup your email accounts.
