    I have an April Fool's Day joke app I really like a lot.

    I have learned it is no longer available in repo.

    I don't want to lose this app.

    I have PkgBackUp and SBOrganizer.

    Does Cydia keep the apps on a server?

    If not: How would I backup the app, for a Restore or to the "upgrade" from version 3.0 and get the "Spirit jailbreak" if I should take the "leap of faith".

    I couldn't resist.

    I am not convinced I want to make any changes because I have Orange Gadgets iGPS360 and xGPS and all of my Apple Store GPS apps are running fine.

    But, if something happened, or, if I did "upgrade" how do I backup the April Fool's Day joke app?

    I have iFunBox.

    What files do I copy?

    Will I be able to put it back in?

    I do not SSH because I put a randomly generated Passcode and forgot it. I actually did that "on purpose" because I didn't want to get hacked. I suppose that was really stupid.

    When you done jailbreak redownload pkgbackup from Cydia and you'll get your apps back.

    It should be in the /Applications folder. Just copy the whole app folder.

    I have had it all this time. I love it.

    I switch my themes to a "Windows theme" and I love it. It is great fun.

    I copy the Folder and I have all of it?

    It is a "stand alone" app? It doesn't need to "install"?
