    Ok so i followed this guide to try and save/get my jailbroken apps back after upgrading to 3.0
    so i did what is said and got this far and got this error
    Code:
    ketterer@ketterer-laptop:~$ ssh root@192.168.1.108
    root@192.168.1.108's password: 
    Ketterers-iPod:~ root# apt-get update
    -sh: apt-get: command not found
    I understand what apt-get is and like what it is trying to do but why is it not installed on here. or is there and equivalent to apt-get like can i use aptitude and if so what are the switches or whatever they are called to get it do do what i need

    Install the package APT 7 something from Cydia.

    apt-get used to be included with Cydia, but saurik removed it...

    I think that if you install any of the packages called APT 7 all of them which you need are installed. If not, just install all packages that say APT 7, they are like 2 or 3. I don't remember which one I installed.
