    Hi,

    I just spent the last few hours trying to read up on how to upgrade my JB Ipad 2 wifi 5.0.1 to 6.1.2 and I am a little confused based on all the guides I read and they all seem to vary in methods. First question i would like to ask is: is it possible to keep all my JB'd apps when upgrading? I know that theres a program called PKGBackup to back up my cydia tweaks but was not sure about apps (is it possible to not use this app as I do not really care about my tweaks?). If I do not have to re-download all my apps (not talking about purchased ones) how do I JB my ipad using the easiest method? Please help

    Thanks

    You can save your App Store apps data and settings by making a full backup in iTunes. Then, you can save the settings and such for your Cydia tweaks by using an app such as the PKGBackup tweak you mentioned.

    Once you backup, upgrade and re-jail break, you can restore from the backups.

    PKGBackup is not working, using 5.3.2 (which I think is the latest version), as it keeps crashing when I click "back up". Is there another alternative?

    I can't duplicate your problem as my PKGBackup (version 5.3.2) works fine.

    Have you set it up in your Settings app, first? It won't work (correctly or at all) if you don't "activate" it via Settings, first.
