    The .deb file is most likely gone...I'm not aware of a way.. Maybe dev can send it..contact dev with issues... ..I think u can do that with iFile, but u have to find the .deb before u respring...I think that's what I've read...if u've resprung since install its most likely gone...

    Ok, I haven't upgraded yet. If I cannot revert to the previous version then I will not upgrade.

    Hi, I use DebianSaverLaunchDaemon, it saves the debs in Directory
    /var/mobile/Documents/DebianSaver/ just reinstall the tweak if you want a current one. As you say, it is very useful when an updated tweak doesn't work and you would like to revert back to the previous version instead of waiting for the next update. It would be handy if previous versions were kept in Cydia. Here are some previous versions I have had to revert to to get things working again, they include PkgBackup, Clockify, IconSupport, SpeakEvents, Forecast and Jukebox.
