Thread: "Set up as new" question

    Default "Set up as new" question
    Ok, so the dev team has said numerous times that when you upgrade a jailbroken device (such as 3.0 to 3.1) that when the phone is restored it is best to set up as a new phone instead of using the itunes backup.

    Through my research it seems like doing so will not restore such things as the camera roll, sms's, etc. Question is, what all isn't carried over when the phone is set up as new? And what is the easiest way to backup/restore these items?

    Awesome. I had SSH's into my phone before to see where those items were kept and it never occurred to me that they were all in the user folder.

    Thanks for the fast response!
