Save Cydia Apps

If you've decided to pull the plug on your iOS 3.2 jailbreak and try out the new iOS 4.2.1 that was recently released, and doesn't have an untethered jailbreak available for the iPad yet. Then here are a few steps to save your current Cydia to allow you to install a newer version of iOS and want to keep your Cydia apps, themes, tweaks, etc.

These instructions are for the iPhone,iPod Touch and will be updated for the iPad.

Save your Cydia apps list and reinstall it again to your device.

  • Open Mobile Terminal (get it from Cydia)
  • Enter this command: "dpkg _-get-selections> installed-apps.txt"
  • Now we have created the Cydia app list file which called "installed-apps.txt" in " / var / mobile "
  • You are done, use your favorite SFTP client (Cyberduck (Mac OS X) or WinSCP (Windows) to SHH into your device).

Reinstalling your Cydia Apps, submit the file called "installed-apps.txt" to "/ var / mobile", after reinstalling Cydia and Terminal, type these commands:
  • "su"
  • Type your password (default password: alpine)
  • "dpkg-set-selections"
  • "apt-get dselect-upgrade"
  • If you found problems type this command: "apt-get dselect-fix-missing-upgrade"
  • Now Cydia will automatically reinstall all your packages
