Thread: Edit APTBackup List
02-14-2009, 12:10 PM #1Edit 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.

find / -name aptbackup*
