How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an iPhone 5 that I jail broke as soon as the 7.0.4 came out and for a few months it hasn't let me connect to iTunes. My computer recognizes my device and I can move my photos to my computer(sometimes, other times it says device is malfunctioning). My phone also doesn't recognize my new files since the jailbreak (on iCloud) and can't find any software updates. Any ideas? I've deleted everything, have no backups since I've gotten a new computer and I don't want to lose my files(texts, pics, notes etc).

The question has been closed for being "Piracy (against the rules)" by theiphoneguy, 08 May '14, 13:09

Sorry, we do NOT support piracy. Remove piracy sources and package and see if it fixes it. If not you may need a restore (semi restore doesnt fix system files)
