    Exclamation Edit APTBackup List
    NOTE: You can skip reading the following, as it has little to do with the info I need, its just the background of how this predicament happened. Skip to the next set of hyphens.
    ---------------------
    Well. I've been through two restores in two days and I've finally figured out the problem.

    I was running a cracked version of MySMS that was 'virused' by someone (either the developer or the cracker) and it deleted some system files that the phone needed to boot. I (, and everyone else that installed it,) got a looping Apple of Death.
    Restoring fixed it, but after restoring, I re-installed all of my apps thru APTBackup (before I knew that MySms was the culprit), and it happened again.
    ---------------------
    Long story short, I want to edit the APTBackup list to remove the entry for MySms.

    I've already backed up from APT, and I've restored already, so if I were to press restore from APTBackup, it would work, I just don't want it to install MySms.

    I really don't want MySms to kill my phone again, but I really don't want to re-install all of my 60 or so jailbreak apps individually.

    I don't know where APTBackup keeps its backup list, and I don't know what format it's in. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Yeah, it's too late for that now, but that's what I should have done in the first place, I'm probably going to get stuck with some proprietary apple file instead of a nice and friendly .txt .

    Thanks for the tip.

    To find that location... I used "find" in mobileTerminal

    find / -name aptbackup*
