    they don't get transferred during an itunes sync. How do we make sure we don't lose our apps should we need a restore?

    thanks

    what do you guys do to make sure you don't lose your apps?
    can we ssh into the phone and copy the .app files?

    That may work... Probably the best way would be to copy the whole file structure incase anything else gets installed. But then if you updated the firmware or something compatability may be lost.

    Just install "AptBackup" (use Cydia and search for it). You can also SFTP into your iPhone and copy the .app files in /private/var/stash/
