    Hey, I wanted to back up my sources on my 1.1.4 touch. The location changed it seems or the filename is different because there's no /var/root/Library/InstallerPackageSources.plist. Do you know the new location?

    On my iPod, there's a private/var/root/Library which has 3 folders in it, one of which is /Installer/. Inside that folder are files called (with size in brackets): PackageSources.plist [2,924], RemotePackages.plist [783,820], TrustedSources.plist [830]. Which of those contains my sources, if any?

    Also, how can I open one of the .plist files to check?

    Same as I posted before but instead of "root" it's "mobile".

    I just copied:
    /var/root/Library/Installer/PackageSources.plist

    PS- you can probably open the file in notepad

    I don't think that's right either. Here's the folder you suggested:

    Here's what in the Installer folder:

    Thanks desi-soulja and ChriB. I copied that file, opened in Notepad and it does in fact contain my sources.

    It's "LocalPackages.plist".
