Is it bad to backup your jailbroken iPhone to iTunes?

Asked by futurelaker88 (1600points) March 5th, 2009

I have the backup PRE-jailbreak on my itunes, but im afraid if i let it backup again, its going to overwrite it, and i will lose my “safe backup.” Can i backup now and it will still do the same thing, and if i restore to this backup, will it restore it to a jailbroken iPhone again?

I’m not sure that iTunes will backup a jailbroken iPhone, but if it does, more power to you…

To maintain the security of the “clean” backup, you can copy it to a safe location, either on your HDD, or on removable media. You can then run the “dirty” backup, knowing that you have a clean backup waiting in the wings, should you need it.
