Backup and upgrade
I have jail broken my iPad with greenpoisen.
I want to upgrade to the latest os and wondering how to backup
I did a backup with iTunes and to my suprise not all of my apps are synced.
***** EDIT ***** some free apps and paid apps are not showing on iTunes.
How can I get my apps synced and backed up for restore after system update?
And what Is the best jb option for the latest os?
I posted a guide in the tutorials and guides section specifically for those wanting to upgrade their JB to the latest iOS version. Have a look at it and see if it answers your questions...
I saw that guide you posted, very informative and helpful
Still my problem is that after I backup with iTunes I don't see all of my apps there
Just an example: I see dropbox but no smurfs.
Provided the apps are all legitimate and purchased / downloaded through the App store then they should re-sync. Make sure all the apps are ticked to install by looking at the "Apps" tab within iTunes on your desktop when the iPad is connected and selected in the panel on the left. Apps must be ticked to be installed, then press "sync".
Yes. The two I mentioned are legit and were downloaded through app store on the iPad.
When I tick the apps on iTunes the apps storage drops from five giga to one and I'm afraid to let it sync like that so I would lose all the data
And I don't see them on the left
Gotta love iTunes. :)
If you don't see them on the left (i.e. in iTunes) then you need to "transfer purchases". Right click on your iPad in iTunes and choose transfer purchases. This will move all the apps you have downloaded from the App store on iPad from your iPad to iTunes.
