    Default Full iPhone backup
    Is there as way to backup the iPhone INCLUDING jailbreak apps?

    Like the way people can backup your PC/MAC and when you restore its exactly like it was when you backed it up.

    Currently iTunes only backs up settings NOT the actual Cydia apps so you have to jailbreak and install all the cydia apps then you can restore properly.

    I would like a full backup so if something goes wrong or whatever you just restore and its all good and installed already.

    Kinda thing I'm looking for is like a drive clone, where it would do a full clone of the iPhone or something like that.

    Any ideas?

    Xbackup can backup your themes, free and PAID cydia tweaks

    however, I really wouldnt recommend going about this method as you are setting yourself up for some serious issues with your phone in the future

    it is always best to restore fresh and install everything fresh

    All of them? Maybe youre just missing something in the process. Ive tried it already twice, and i still got the cydia apps, the only app that i notice missing is the Siriport.

    Here's a really good tutorial on PKGBackup: HOW TO - Use PKGBackup to safeguard your Jailbreak Apps & Settings - from my created thread here PKGbackup???

    Hope this helps.
