    About to jump the gun on the new 4S update, smh at the 3G issues (can't get more then 3 bars)

    How exactly do I back up my tweaks so I won't have to reinstall each one when I re-jailbreak?

    a cheaper way is to use an app (forgot the name, had read it on another thread on MR) that lists all your tweaks. get hold of that list, re-jailbreak and get on a wifi network and queue up all ur listed tweaks n dload/install in 1 go.
    just an alternative cheaper option.

    PkgBackup might be expensive but the time it saves is superb. And, it gets updated a lot. Well worth the money!

    So the update is for 4s users only? If I'm on an iPhone 5 I can't update?

    Just restore and manually add the tweaks, what's the fuss about?

    Cant you just log into your cydia account and re download the tweaks from there.

    Yes, but it is still one at a time.

    ----------

    Sounds like someone should consider PkgBackup.

    I tried "apt backup" one time years ago, then after that disaster immediately bought PkgBackup.

    What's the fuss over the fuss? If you don't see the point then move on and manually add your tweaks. Plenty of others find PkgBackup and similar very useful.

    That applies to any problem on this site.
