    It's recommended to not use aptbackup for reinstalling cydia apps when upgrading to a freshly released jailbreak. Most of the apps dont work anyways so it's more of a pain in the *** than just rebuilding manually. Aptbackup is great for when you need to when you're restoring to the same OS version you've had installed in the past, but not for new ones.

    Just do this:

    Backup, Upgrade to 4.0.1, use JailbreakMe, manually install cydia packages

    When you say upgrade to 4.01, do you mean through ITUNES or another method?

    Default Does Method of Jailbreak Matter for Upgrading?

    I'm not sure whether I jailbroke my 3gs/3.1.3 w/ spirit or blackrain. Will this even matter when upgrading to the new ios4?

    Appreciate the help!
