    I have an iPad 3 and iPhone 4s both jailbroken and want to know if there's any way at all that I can jailbreak and still keep my cydia things, as I have quite a lot of them!

    There are apps that will reinstall your Cydia packages, but I would not recommend using them for a firmware upgrade. Not all tweaks are 6.x compatible, so it is best to just keep a list and install each package individually after thoroughly researching it.

    I used PKGBackup (found in Cydia). Worked great. Backed up my jb tweaks/apps to my dropbox account. Worked great. Even saved all my settings. Recommend checking the jb compatible tweaks list in this forum and just dont back those up. Only issue i had was gridlock.
