    Now that i have jailbroken my iPhone 4, lets say hypothetically i want to go back to the way it was in a couple of weeks time, but in that time ive sync'd some more music to it or whatever, if i restore to a basic firmware and then restore to the backup of my phone will it carry the jailbreak back with it? I imagine itunes doesnt take a backup of the system files and stuff because it can just use an IPSW so it should just be the media, am i correct in thinking that or do i have to not sync it in case i want to go back?

    No I does not. A restore will get rid of the jailbreak

    just checking you do mean a restore to a previous version of the phone and not a fresh restore correct?

    a fresh restore will lose your jailbreak too.

    but i meant if i do a fresh restore and then use a backup of my phone it shouldnt re-install the jailbreak, im not privvy to waht itunes backs up but like i said i didnt imagine it would be the system files
