Thread: Cydia Backup for New iphone

    Question Cydia Backup for New iphone
    Hi

    I currently have a 3g[s] that has been Jailbroken with Cydia. My phone has been having dramas (hardware failure where the lock button is now ******** along with the silent switch) and is going away for repair or replacement.
    Obviously if I return the phone with it being jailbroken it will void the insurance. They are most likely going to send me a new phone, probably the 4. Is it possible to backup my 3gs, restore it to its normality and then jailbreak the 4 when it arrives keeping all the apps which i have purchased from the Cydia store? Or do I have to bite the bullet and purchase all the apps again.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance

    Sure you could create a backup for your 3GS and put it onto the iPhone 4. But that doesn't mean you can jailbreak the iPhone 4 (untethered and unbuggy that is) if it comes with 4.3.4 or 4.3.5.
