    Hey guys,

    I am going to start all over again with the OS 3.0, so i'll just completely wipe my iPod .
    Now question:

    Can I save my applications (at least a couple that I do not want to download again) by just saving the folder out of /private/var/stash/Applications.xxxxxx?
    And then (when the JB is out) just copy them back?
    Without losing my saved data? (games...)

    I used google, the search function AND the google search function for this forum, but I wasn't able to find anything.

    Anybody knows?

    Thanks

    Don


    edit: wrong forum, sorry :/

    Just download them on your computer through iTunes, and make sure you backup, and everything should be fine.

    That would take a long time to do and very annoying if you have a lot of apps

    you can do it, but when the JB comes out cydia wont recognize whats installed and what isn't... Therefore no updates
