    Default Doing an Major Upgrade G2>G3S
    First off Hello Peeps
    I have just made a major move in upgrading my iphone, went from my trusty 2G to the speedy 3GS. The thing is that my 2g has all the things that i like and all the Cydia Mods & Apple Apps, So i guess my question is how do i exchange stuff from one to the other? I have WinSCP and SSH, do i make a folder on my computer and download what i need to that folder? or is there a easy way to do this? i am new to WinSCP and have not mastered it yet so if anyone can help that would be great!! Stan

    Well first you need to J//B the phone and add cydia, then you can start to down load whatever apps or themes you might want to use.

    You can download some stuff to your computer to reuse on your new phone but most things will have to be reinstalled via Cydia

    due to the firmware upgrade, you'll probably have to reinstall most of your apps in your new 3GS

    All the apple apps will still sync through itunes and your computer, so don't worry about that.

    The cydia apps can be synced with a program called PKGBackup.
    Look it up on cydia.
    It costs 2 bucks.

    Once you get it, select the packages you want to back up.
    Then sync your iphone with itunes.
    When you have your new 3gs jailbroken, you should restore from a previous iPhone (if given the option).
    Download PKGBackup again (you shouldn't have to pay again) and click on restore.

    You should then have your cydia packages back.

    Good luck!
