    Hi Guys,

    With Limera1n released to crack 3.2.2..
    And many of us downloading jailbroken apps...

    A question comes to mind..

    How to backup all those downloaded jailbroken apps and keep them somewhere so that we do not have to re-download later for new iOS upgrade???

    Any simple and easy method to extract all those jailbroken apps downloaded in jailbroken ipad and then backup somewhere and then easily re-load into new jail broken ipad??

    Appreciate all responses...

    There's an app on Cydia called AptBackup. This doesn't actually back up the apps, but it backs up a list of the jailbreak apps, and once you restore and run the apps, it will re-download and install all of your jailbreak apps for you.

    There is currently no app that does a full backup of all your actual JB apps.

    @zelphon. What I used to do (before going to 4.2 beta2) was:
    Install openssh on your iPad so you can access it via ssh.
    Install WinSCP (or alternative MAC program)
    Assuming you also use mostly installous to download IPAs, access /var/mobile/downloads/installous/ where you will find a zip file for each app you have downloaded. (I hope the directory is correct, I can't check on mine now as I don't have a JB on 4.2)

    Copy them across to your PC via WInSCP, rename the .zip extension to .ipa after an upgade you can import them into iTunes.

    Good luck

    I wont give the link out as I think it against rules but there a website that has all the newest .ipa ready for download. This how I get mine this way I can have them on my pc for later use and since I have App sync I can just drag and drop them into itunes for install.

    Now instalous is nice when on the go all in one solution,but this a great way to have backups of your apps and games with ease.

    Pm me if you want the website url or if a admin can let me know if it breaks rules or not.
