I fully agree now - that using JUST the REINSTALL method only would leave dependency files ungrabable. Moving to a fresh install of the old jailbreakable iOS (in this case 5.1.1) THEN doing the install and saving of .debs should overcome that obstacle and still have you 'beat the system' of waiting for Cydia on day 1. Yes, - I know - now "I'M"writing the novel.. sorry gang.. Just have to try this once.
Watch Saurik's 'newer faster' Cydia have NO waiting lines.. Doubtful - but great!
For those interested - IF you do a full reinstally of 5.1.1 and reget tweaks from Cydia you can save a clean PKGBackup of all the stuff that's stable - and then IF indeed the Cydia servers are not that clogged (since PKGBkup accesses Cydia servers for restoring) - you can at least not have to restore '1x1'...
For those for whom this is convoluted -- no worries. Some of us are JUST this geeky.. LOL!!

Good luck bro. I think this way will get you as close as you can to a good experience. I was gonna recommend doing a re-restore, but I really didn't want to put you there. Glad you decided that on your own.

Sorry, all! Been at my daughters' soccer game.
To clarify everything...
Using Gridlock as our example:
-In the .deb file, it contains a Description (aka Control File) of the Gridlock tweak.
-This description identifies what pre or post install dependency files are required for Gridlock.
-These pre or post install .deb files ARE NOT included w/ Gridlock but are 'searched for' in Cydia prior to the installation of Gridlock.
If/when these pre or post .deb files are found, then Cydia will install everything at the same time.
-If you already have those .deb files installed on your phone, then Cydia will install 'just' the Gridlock.deb.
To take it a step further:
-A .deb 'might' even have 'PreInstall' or 'PostInstall' files that tell the phone what to do before or after the package is installed. One example is the Respring or Reboot message you receive after something's installed.
I spent hours and hours restoring and rejailbreaking to figure out what dependency files were 'needed' to avoid server traffic during a jailbreak release. It was tedious work but rewarding once I figured it all out!

I love my kids soccer games. I got 2 that play HS and competitive and a 3rd that plays just recreational. I coached competitive for 10 years, but had to take this year off.
Enjoy bro, and thanks for the info.

FYI, it looks like Cydia has updated some more dependency files. I will be 'hopefully' adding those to my Dependency Tweak for tomorrow's release.

In fact, I'll post a link on here to my website which will have the .deb file for anyone to use if all else fails!
I can't get it onto my repo cuz of some weird thing that will shut the entire repo down if I add or modify anything to it.... :-(

That list posting will be ANXIOUSLY awaited, my friend. Appreciate your help for those of us 'oh so impatient ones'. Tomorrow's a big work day for me - so I'll only have my laptop at work and I want to have all my 'stuff' ready to go on the laptop tonight before I head to bed. Chances are - it will be LATE in the day tomorrow if at all. But not long now.
This has been a HUGE learning process for me and will take me to another level as a helper around here for noobs and a modder myself. After I get up and running on 6.1 tomorrow my next undertaking is to write up everything I learned (as you have) - and share it - and then start on my first Widget - which I think I'm just about ready to undertake. :-) Your and King's and Simon's help has been INVALUABLE today. Thanks, guys!!

I've updated my website w/ my Dependency Tweak and added Winterboard and MobileTerminal in case someone needs those right away.
I haven't tested my tweak since I don't have a lot if time but here you go!
