    Default I'm screwed.
    Ok so I'm sending my iPhone into Apple (Jailbroken 3.0, legit carrier) and I understand the "don't restore from backup" concept. So I ask this: How can I restore my backup without syncing back the jailbroken data? I know that it technically doesn't but it pretty much does. If it means I can only save the camera roll, so be it.

    P-p-p-please help

    If you are sending it into apple then restore and set up as new rather than from back-up. This will ensure no jailbroken data is written to the phone. Is this what you meant?

    I already knew that, I mean I just don't want to have to redo my settings, and remember which apps I sync to my iPhone. I figured out my camera roll so that's not an issue.

    Also, when you restore from backup it screws up the storage capacity due to partitioning.

    Once you get it back from Apple you can restore it from the backup that you made. When you set it up as a new phone it doesn't delete the backups on your computer.

    I know how the backup system(s) work. I need to know, is there a way for me to keep my backup, minus the jailbroken data. YES. The backup WILL keep the JB data.

    if your sending the phone as new to apple why do you need a backup without jailbreak?!

    unless you want apple to see all your contracts, music, videos etc..
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    I'm not sending it as new, I've had it since October. It doesn't matter the way I'm sending it to them.

    I'm dealing with the backup here, is there any way I can keep my settings without restoring from backup?

    nope, write them down.
    Edit, I stand corrected, I forgot about the method described below by the Wizard Neo.

    You could SSH into the phone and SSH all of your data out. Then when you restore you can rejailbreak and SSH the old data back in.

    Follow this guide to do it:
