[redacted] I found this website and it explains how to convert cydia apps from .deb (debian format) to itunes friendly .ipa format. NOTE i am not talking about cracking cydia paid apps or anything of the sorts! I would only use this as a means to sync cyida apps with itunes (hopefully). Could someone please tell me if this will work? Once Redsn0w is released for 3.1 i plan to backup all of my cydia apps and info by syncing with itunes. I really hope this can work as it would be a great hassle to have to install all of my cydia apps again as well as all of the settings. I would only use the latest versions of the cydai apps that i have that i know are compatible with 3.1. Would this work?? and if so, would it actually create a backup in itunes with all of the cydia app data? Please tell me if you can get it to work as i have not personally tried it myself. Also, can i use itunes 9 with my 3.0 jailbroken 1st gen ipod touch or would it brick it? ------------------double post merged------------------Oh, and i forgot to add- If this method doesnt work couldnt i technically just use ssh to make a backup of all the files i need on my computer and then just transfer them after i jailbreak?
