    The file /var/lib/dpkg/status is a list of everything you have installed. With terminal, you can type dpkg -l for a list with shorter descriptions.

    If you purchase PkgBackup ($3.49) it will save a list of all your Cydia apps and re-install them all in one operation after restoring and re-JB.

    Well worth the $$$

    list of installed packages

    cat /var/lib/dpkg/status | grep Package: | awk -F: '{print $2}' | sort

    assuming you have grep, Gawk and sort installed... :cool:


    by the way, this is mine :

    Rock has a built in backup system that keeps a log of all you jailbreak installs so you can reinstall them all at once after a restore.

    Just resync your phone and reinstall PkgBackup. The backup is stored in a contact called PkgBackup, which will be copied back to your phone when you sync contacts. When you run PkgBackup, it will import the list of installed packages to reinstall all or to choose which ones you wish to reinstall.

    You could just select Manage Packages and type the list with a text editor.

    PkgBackup is great for restoring Cydia Apps, but what I think the OP (and I) are looking for is something that will spit out a list. If I could get a "copy" of the list that is generated when you select Manage/Packages in Cydia, that would be perfect!

    The backup in contacts from PkgBackup is cryptic...doesn't help.

    An easier way...


    dpkg --get-selections > /var/mobile/Documents/pkg_list.txt

    This will allow you to grab pkg_list.txt from wherever you choose to save it, and keep it for reference when updating, reinstalling packages.

    a cheap, simple, n00b way for those who dont want to pay.

    1.) take screenshots of installed packages
    2.) sync photos

    PkgBackup also has an option to back up to Dropbox.
    After backing up to Dropbox, you can go to the Dropbox web interface, find the location of the last backup, and do a copy and paste of the APPLICATIONS_DATA folder.

    For me I made a word document when I installed my very first tweaks.

    Every tweak that you add or theme, just add the name to word doc. Very simple process that shows everything you have without dealing the hard to navigate file system within iOS.

    This is it

    I CANNOT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH: This does exactly what the questioner is asking for (and coincidentally, what I was looking for).

    List of App Store Apps

    List of Cydia Packages

    The Cydia list is not a list of every package that dpkg knows about - the output of the other suggestions - it is a list of the packages that YOU selected in the Cydia App - which is obviously what you want if you are going to install them one by one.

    It puts the list in an email that you can send to yourself.

    Very useful!!

    Open PkgBackup - upper right corner icon (box with arrow)

    Email list to yourself
