    Now that rock is no longer and cydia does NOT seem to offer the back apps up function that rock offered, is there a way to backup your installed cydia/rock apps ?

    AptBackup and PKGBackup are the two main choices. AptBackup is free but unreliable and has never worked right for me personally, so I shelled out the $4 for PKGBackup and it's always worked great. It saves the information as a contact so that once you restore your device from its backup with iTunes, you can reinstall PKGBackup and then run it and it will redownload and install everything.

    I think Saurik said that they were working with Rock Your Phone on backing up cydia apps. Hopefully that's true.

    Are you serious? Do you know how many files are associated with activator? About 300+

    PKGbackup is $4 but it works. Get it. Use it. Its fantastic!
