    I know that itunes does not back up cydia and other jailbreak things but it does backup anything else in other like saves etc extras. Okay i was wondering if you can edit a couple of files on itunes to force itunes to backup cydia and put it on the ipod when restoring from a backup well i dont know if there is a problem on that but im just wondering because i think its a great idea.

    I don't think Cydia is signed at all.

    In theory, that's a great idea. Making iTunes install Cydia through a backup is basically beating around the bush and going in through the back door. However, I don't think there's anything that can make iTunes choose what to back up. The trick is getting iTunes to back up what it doesn't recognize, which is Cydia.

    Yeah so if you edit files in the backup process itunes has to save cydia and restore it back to it rightful place like add a line to the thing Backup-var-mobile-???-???-??? and itunes should put it back and make folders for it.

    So if someone where to make a plugin for cydia to install on itunes. Itunes should reckonize it aand back it up it probably think that its a game backup or some sort.

    Maybe it could work, but finding the right bit to edit would be HARD.

    Alright, so you would have Cydia installed theoretically, how would you make it run on a device that you cannot access root on?

    Wont work for the same reason adding cydia as an ipa wont work. Its not just the cydia app, you need to enable full read/write access to do anything jailbreak related

    j

    Itunes has a authorized access to the ipod touch so it still might be posibble but it will be hard.

    Yes id itunes is able to restore a ipod it must have root acess but it probably needs a code sort of like decryptor.
