    Hi guys,

    Every time I restore my ipod, I lose all of my cydia apps, and like most people, this annoys me so much. I've looked around on the web, but I'm still not sure if this is the correct way to backup up cydia apps.

    So, can someone tell me if this will work:

    Backup (via ssh):

    private/var/stash/applications (the actual apps)
    /var/lib/apt/lists (sources)
    /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ (sources)

    So if I back all of these up, and then replace them back in the correct places after a restore, will all the apps work properly, and will all the apps and sources appear in Cydia again?

    Thanks

    It makes sense
    By the way try APTBackup, it does the same, search it on cydia
