    I jailbroke my iPhone 4 last week and it went into the Apple Boot Loop today, so I had to restore via DFU mode.

    As a result, I lost all of my jailbreak apps/tweaks. Is there any Cydia app/tweak that is compatible with iOS 6 that backs up and restores your Cydia app/tweak info?

    Thanks! :apple:

    several: Pkgbackup, Openbackup

    I have Pkgbackup, but only use it if i need to restore within the same firmware.
    On new firmware it is better to setup as new and reinstall apps/tweaks manually as some might not yet be compatible with the newest firmware, that might cause a loop like you had yourself.

    I didn't think PKGBackup was available for iOS 6, but sure enough, it is.
    It looks like this should work quite well, thanks!

    Also, thanks for the tip on restoring only within the same firmware... It would be just my luck to brick my iPhone after doing a full restore on a new firmware :p
