How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an iPhone 4S and jailbroke it when it had iOS 6. But it has been suffering from a WORLD of problems: random crashes, weather app not working, frequent restarts/resprings, the list goes on. It's been infuriating to use this phone lately. I guess I'll just have to wait for the updates.

So let's say that evasion came out with a jailbreak for 6.1.3. Then is there a way for me to upgrade my phone to that version and jailbreak it at the same time without losing any of my jailbreak settings/apps? Or do I have to restore my phone, upgrade, and then jailbreak? Thanks

Get OpenBackup to back the tweaks up, then get crashreporter to determine some of the problems

When/if evasi0n comes out supporting iOS 6.1.3, here's a way you can work it out:

  1. Install AptBackup (or any other) from Cydia;
  2. Fire it and press the backup button;
  3. Install latest version of iTunes on your computer;
  4. Plug you iThing and let iTunes sync, backup and update;
  5. Click your device's name top corner right;
  6. Click Restore the iDevice and NOT Restore from backup;
  7. Choose Configure as a new device at the end;
  8. JB you iThing again;
  9. Restore your backup
  10. Fire up AptBackup and click on Restore.

Note that if restoring with Aptbackup fails, you can still re-download all your JB stuff for free.

Hope this helps,
