    Default clean restore.
    i want to restore my phone as new but i still want my jailbreak items. i dont want to re-do everything again. i have pkgbackup, aptBackup, and appBackup. will any of these roload all of my mods? if so, how? would i have to install from cydia again before restoring my mods?

    aptbackup creates a list of all cydia packages and saves them when you sync with itunes. just back up, sync,restore jailbreak, run aptbackup again. it should reinstall apps but it dosent save the settings within the apps. didnt you read the instructions on aptBackup..?

    ^ You are right, but pkgbackup does a MUCH better job, backup with them both but try pkgbackup first

    Yes you must buy PKGbackup, if you are somehow unable to do this, use aptbackup
    if you use aptbackup before restoring, back up the /var/mobile/library/preferences and than put that folder back into the iPod once it's restored
