    I think you will need to restore as new phone. You can resync your contacts and calendar in itunes but will have to re enter your "settings data" like ringtones, weather, stocks youtube bookmarks.

    I think itunes does not like when you restore a backup that was created on a different version of itunes. Its generally a good practice to restore as new anyway.

    In the future,you can copy the preference files for some of the settings from preferences via ssh ahead of time and then ssh them back after you restore.
    com.apple.mobilephone.speeddial.plist -- phone favorites
    com.apple.mobiletimer.plist - clock settings
    com.apple.stocks.plist - stock settings
    com.apple.weather.plist - weather settings
    com.apple.youtube.plist -youtube settings

    The above files are in /private/var/mobile/library/preferences

    then for youtube if you want ,you can copy the folder private/var/mobile/library/youtube
