    I hope my questions are OK and someone may be able to help or point me in the right direction.

    I have an iPad 1 (64gb) that i JBed a long time ago (it is on 3.2.2)

    I understand I can now upgrade to 4.1.3 and do an untethered JB with Redns0w (I used Limera1n on the 1st JB)

    My question is: I have a lot of things setup with things like: mAdvLock, SBSettings, Categories etc... Is there a 3rd party app that would allow me to save my JB setup before I upgrade, ready to restore after I JB the latest firmware?

    I hope this is within the rules. :eek:

    +1 for pkgbackup. Very useful and works a treat

    and absolutely within the rules!

    The only word of caution is if you are going from 3.2.2 you may have things working now which are not compatible with 4.3.1, or have alternative solutions.
    Categories may be an example, where you might prefer the functionality of either built in folders in IOS, OR a solution such as folder enhancer (my favourite).
    However, don't worry. When you try and restore incompatible packages using pkgbackup it will just pass them by. You can see anything which cannot be restored in a log when it finishes.

    Give it a go and let us know how you get on!

    Many thanks to you both, just what I was looking for and I will now be able to do this hopefully before 4.3.2 is out! :)

    Sorry for another noob question, but could someone enlighten me as how to setup pkgbackup so the backup goes to my Dropbox account? :confused:

    No problem. Hit the cog (top left) which takes you into settings. Press Dropbox on primary storage line, log in, and voila!

    Also, does folder enhancer allow custom icons for custom icons?

    TIA

    No problem. Hope you get it sorted. It is so long since I was on 3.x on iPad that I've forgotten what it's like!

    So I took a backup with Pkgbackup yesterday and proceeded to upgrade to 4.3.1 this morning, then I jailbreaked with Redsn0w ... so far so good.

    Then I installed Pkgbackup and restored, since then the iPad crashes every time I open any app :( It then goes to 'it safe mode'.

    I thought I would restore from my last backup on iTunes before jailbreaking and then do a fresh JB but, after restoring, the iPad, it is still the same (ie still JBed and crashing)

    Helpppppppp ?? I am worried about a full restore because I don't want to loose all my stuff, documents etc on the iPad.

    What can I do to resolve this issue please? :eek:

    To add, I thought this would be the case:
    This is from Pkgbackup FAQ, very helpful!! :(

    I am googling but am yet to find a way to revert Pkgbackup's restore :(:(

    Hmmm. The problem is it relies on the package on Cydia being marked up with it's dependencies correctly. Looks like you have something old and nasty in your list. You might be best restoring clean again and selecting what you restore from backup in a more controlled way... Sorry, that's the best I can suggest.

    That should be fine. Why not take the opportinty to start with a nice clean jailbreak on 4.3.1? Install things in a careful controlled manner over the next few days. No need to go all in with the risk you have some horrible app which is not compatible with 4.3.1... Just a thought...

    Thanks again, my problem is I have loads of documents, emails etc that I cannot afford to lose. The worst thing is that all was perfect after I upgraded and JBed with Redsn0w ... I wish I had reinstalled each tweak from Cydia one by one rather thank using PkgB, and looking on google, I am not the only one :(

    I have to be sure before doing a clean install so if someone can confirm 100% I will not lose received and sent emails and many documents, I'd really appreciate it.

    Many thanks in advance.

    One more thought, if I remove each installed adons (in it safe mode), one by one, could I hope that may fix it when the culprit is removed??

    Also, isn't there a way I could just reinstall 4.3.2 to remove JB all together and re JB with redsnow so I can all extras through Cydia manually?
