Since iCloud has the wrong Apple ID and I cannot change it, so I chose to back up to iTunes locally before jailbreak, including a big heap of camera photos, videos and iPhone messages. But now iTunes also discourages me, I tried using the iTunes to restore my iPhone, but as a result, I found all the old iTunes backup data are copied to my iPhone and the photos I recently taken disappear from my iPhone.
