Upgrade Jailbreak iPhone without losing data

Posted 2010/12/28 – 3:20 pm in: iPhone

Upgrading a jailbreak iPhone can be a pain in the ass sometime.

Here what I do when I’m upgrading a firmware.

  1. First install Apt Backup from Cydia if you don’t have it already.
  2. Do a backup in Apt Backup.
  3. Do a backup of your Phone in iTunes.
  4. Restore your iPhone to the last firmware.
  5. Use redsn0w or any of tool of your choice to jailbreak it.
  6. Go in Cydia and install Apt Backup and AppSync.
  7. Go in Apt Backup and Restore.
  8. Go in iTunes and restore.

Et voila, your phone should be almost exactly like it was before the upgrade.

    hi, I was thinking of using this method and I’m just wondering, is this method full proof? I’m kind of new to iphones and I just wanna make sure that I don’t lose any of my data.

    Full proof ? no. No solution to upgrade a jailbreak iPhone if full proof. But if you make sure you do a backup via iTunes you should not have any problem. That’s the trick
