How are you guys updating your unc0ver versions? Do you have to start over and lose all of your tweaks and settings? or is there a way to update without disrupting all of your tweaks? I am curious because I see that the releases are coming in really fast... they are up to B41 right now..... I can't imagine people are restarting every couple of days and reinstalling tweaks etc....

Unless there is a really good backup tool that exists now.

I think the last time I JB my phone was iOS 6 lol... I am currently waiting for the A12 JB, so I can dip my toes in again.

just delete the app off your device. Then use cydia impactor to install the latest version. You can then re-jailbreak with that one and you won't lose anything.

Perfect thanks! that's what I was hoping to hear.... Just getting all my ducks in a row and information straight for when they release the A12 JB.

What is the best tool out right now to backup your tweaks and settings right now? I forget the name of the one I used way back in the days. Sure there is a completely different one now.

Make sure you install the app "ReProvision" from cydia. I don't trust the 160 days from ignition
