    That's a good question! The thing i hate most about restoring is having to go in... add all sources (with shai's rep) then go in and uninstall all the ones that I don't want to try and speed up the refresh process.

    you could just grab the packagesources.plist file and recopy that back once you restore

    Sweet... found the folder and copied all the plists... we'll see if if works next time I need to upgrade/restore.

    Careful with restoring all the plists - LocalPackages.plist lists the already installed programs.

    If you install this, you will be unable to re-install all the applications deleted when you upgrade/restore the firmware.

    Deleting this before upgrading firmware and re-jailbreaking allows you to easily re-install all the applications deleted by the new firmware installation.
