    I installed rsync from Cydia on my Jailbroken iPhone 4 running 4.3.3.

    Then I backed up the iPhone using this command from my Linux PC:

    rsync -av root@ /local/dir/iPhone/RsyncBackup/

    It worked perfectly.

    I installed the Cydia app SBSchedule but now want to try MyProfiles instead. Since they do similar things there would be -I guess- a conflict. So before installing MyProfiles I'm intending to delete SBSchedule from my iPhone, but I already paid for it. So...

    1) If I decide that I don't want MyProfiles will I be able to restore SBSchedule from the Rsync backup which I made?

    2) How would I go about doing so? Which directories and files would need to be restored? Is it just as simple as restoring the app directory below, or are there other files I would need to restore as well? (I'm not asking for the rsync command, just the files/dirs which Jailbroken apps are stored in. I am also not worried about losing my current SBSchedule settings).


    Many thanks.

    You're making it too complicated--just redownload it from Cydia with your same account; you won't be charged if you already paid.

    Yes you're right - I didn't realize that. :eek:

    Thanks for setting me straight.
