    Backup your iPhone 3GS in iTunes and restore to your iPhone 4S after jailbreaking it. If I were you, I wouldn't bother restoring your Cydia Apps to the iPhone 4S because of compatibility issues. Most of the Cydia Apps on 3GS wouldn't work on 4S.

    Just manually install all your Cydia Apps

    So ..

    back-up 3GS to iTunes
    restore from iTunes to new 4S
    upgrade 4S to 6.1.2
    jailbreak 4S
    install cydia applications manually after jailbreak

    .. does that sound right?

    Backup 3GS to iTunes
    Do Full restore of 4S to iOS 6.1.2
    Jailbreak 4S
    Install all your Cydia manually
    Restore from iTunes to 4S

    Thanks.

    When I did a restore to 6.1.2 it also restored the previous 3GS backup as well.

    Is this a problem to then jailbreak and install cydia apps or does it not really make a difference?

    No, it's makes no difference. Did you get all your Cydia App settings back?

    Not had a chance to jailbreak yet so no cydia apps or settings yet.

    Will jailbreak and try another restore over the next day or two
