    Quick question guys...

    I'm having a lot of problems with my ipod and I'm wondering if there is a way to back up jailbroken apps. I tried the common sense way of backing them up through ssh but that did not work. I tried to copy the folder to my desktop then, just to see if it worked, place it back on my ipod and after rebooting the app did not run right.

    Any ideas?

    maybe you need to set the permissions of the apps to 775? i dunno really but you could try

    yeah you will need to edit the permissions when you ssh them back in. backing them up does not sadly keep the permissions...

    Thanks guys, I forgot about changing permissions.

    Will that utility work for all apps, even jailbroken ones?
