    Default Back up jailbroken iPhone 4
    Since it looks like we will finally get a untethered jailbreak for 6.1, I need to know a reliable way to back all my cydia stuff. I've never had a lot of stuff so I used to just start over, but I haven't updated it since 5.1.1 came out, so I've accumulated a lot of tweaks and apps. I just need the easiest back up, preferably not one that uses iCloud or Dropbox, and a video walkthrough if possible. Thank you for your time

    Pkgbackup is one way to backup all your Cydia stuff. Not sure I would recommend it for going up to a new major firmware though. It could put back tweaks that aren't yet compatible with 6.X firmware, which could cause issues.

    The only method that went through was the contacts one, do can you tell me how to restore from that, do I need to upload it to my computer somehow?

    I have never used pkgbackup myself sorry. I always prefer installing things one at a time after an update. Less problems that way.
