    So I was wondering, if I can back up my apps and tweaks to my pc so I don't have to re download them every time I restore my pad? Similar to a nandroid in the droid world? Mainly saved angry bird games and the like, even more awesome if I could transfer them between my iPad one and CDMA iphone

    There is this thing called "iTunes". It works well for backing up apps and their data. :D

    It is KISS. (keep it simple and stupid)

    Works amazingly. Almost no configuration required. Totally worth it.

    this does nothing for what he asked.

    pkgbackup or xbackup for backing up tweaks.
    itunes for the apps and data.
    Done!!!!!

    already answered, there should be no follow up, as there is no other way.
