I am looking for a way to back up all of my sources and packages. If you know of one please let me know.
But I have an idea for a tweak that will automatically back up all of my Cydia sources. Every time a new package is downloaded a note should be created in the notes application listing the the tweak/package name author and date of download. If something like this exists please let me know, or if the new tweak can be created.
I just updated to 5.1.1 and hate having to re-install all packages, one by one.

xBackup does the trick for you. It backs up ALL sources and installed packages. Just download it (it's a paid app on the BigBoss repo) choose the backup option, then go about restoring. When you finish your restore and jailbreak, just download the app again and choose the option to restore the backed up packages.

Google DebianSaverLaunchDeamon, it backs up most deb files as you install them.
PkgBackup is a good tool, especially if you are reinstalling or upgrading your iOS

The rest, Preference files, notes, SMS, shsh, contacts, sources, etc seem to work ok.

I still would prefer xBackup because it doesn't have issues like this lol

It seems these cydia source/package backup apps may all have some issues. Pkgbackup in particular I had issues with. I haven't tried xBackup though, might give that a go. But I always just write my sources and packages down anyway just in case. It seems with pckbackup I get a corrupt backups and it doesn't work after and I end up reinstalling everything manually anyway. I hope xbackup doesn't do that...if it does hope it doesn't happen as often lol.

Xbackup worked flawless last week for me the other day on a friends phone. But have not tryed it again so
Don't know if the source is down.

I found some ones that do work just in case xBackup no longer works: APTBackup, AppBackup, and OpenBackup. Hopefully those will do for the time being just in case xBackup isn't working.
By the way Annie, love the new avy!
