    Sorry if is posted somewhere new to JB and looked at the sticky for the paid/free tweaks, but i have 3 questions before i jump into paying for tweaks i really really want...

    1- is there a tweak that i can purchase that will pack up all my tweaks/pakages/apps i have on my device

    2- If i purchase the backup tweak in #1 would i need to buy 2 for my ipad and iphone or will one license be enou for both devices

    3- in cydia when they ask you login for paid tweaks is there a record kept of that anywhere that could be traced back to me? Also is any spam mail sent to the email used for login?

    Pllease i dont want to gt flammed but i cant find the answers for this anywhere.

    1. PkgBackup is my choice for this. Full backup of all your app list and settings. However, just like the app store, you don't HAVE to back them up. It is just a convenience. Once purchased you are always entitled to re-download whenever required. You just sign in and it checks your credentials.
    Also, other backup solutions are available.

    2. The vast majority of apps you buy once and use on multiple devices, however the choice is the app developers, not Cydia's. A few do make you purchase against the device UDID so you are basically locked into one device. But they are very few as I say.

    3. Yes, Cydia keeps a record of course, so you can redownload your purchased as I stated, but trust me, you want this... Just like any eCommerce site, it has the requisite security. Never any spam. Cydia is a trustworthy multi-million dollar business, so they don't go selling you contact details or anything daft like that.

    Hope that helps.
