    First off I updated NCsetting yesterday and since then my phone crashes about every two hours. I did a backup with PKGBackup before I updated but I am a little confused in the app about restoring. So if I go to restore and check NCsettings is it only going to restore that app? When I select it, before hitting restore it says 1 of 118 uninstalled. So is it going to restore just NCsettings or every app except for NCsettings?

    Cydia backup apps have only ever messed up my phone.

    Just re-install your apps, yes you have to reset the settings but I think it guarantees a smoother baseline to work with.

    If it says 1 of 118 uninstalled, it is going to install just that 1 package.

    With pkgbackup you can choose what is restored and what not, just click on the > to the right of the 1 of 118 uninstalled, it will bring you to the select/deselect section.

    Also if you do a clean install and than a backup from itunes all your old plist/settings files from your cydia apps are restored, not the apps itself but as soon as you reinstall an app your old settings are implemented.

    Thanks TriJetHero that is what I thought but wasn't quite sure. I have used it for full restores and it worked great but never for just single apps. I just wanted to go back to the older version of NCsettings until there is another update for it.
