    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
