    Well after looking all day for a option all I could find was a site called iappcat. Com where you can look for any app and add it to a repo for yourself but if one goes down you won't have it nomore in your repo. Is this the only option :eek: ?

    Well - I for one would love to hear about what you did to save your apps. Just because you don't get a response, doesn't mean that you have to hold back info from the rest of the world. Doing that makes you no better then the very people you are upset at...

    If you have JB your iPod, SSH into your iPod and copy all of the files onto your Desktop. Make sure to collect the roms and settings as well, you may want those if you JB again in the future.

    Yeah I've tried doing this before with some of the previous jailbreaks but it didn't work, I think you may need the Info.plist from the SpringBoard app but IDK, this is a while ago now. :)

    Doesn't iTunes keep a back up of everything the iPod had on it for a restore?

    Or do you mean actually having each app seperatly?

    yeah that's true. not trying to hold back just didn't want to post something noone wated to talk about.

    if you check out my myspace i post alot nice things for people.

    myspace.com/itzdemo

    what i do is goto iappcat.com and find the apps i want to save and add them to my account then at the top click the repo link and save the files it gives you. rename that file and add the EX ".txt" to it and then open it. do a find by hitting the ctrl + f and look for any with ".zip" that will be a link to download that app. save all the apps you want to a folder and make you own repo. i made one at myrepospace.com then add those apps to your account.

    if you use just iappcat.com it just links to other peoples files and you risk them updating, changing or deleting them !

    that's it

    now you'll have your own repo hosting your own saved apps ! one source to reinstall just everything you like ! can't get no better then that.

    NOTE: some host won't let you download the files that way. just look for another till you find that that will..

    if you will post back on this method and let me know what you think of it. or if you might know an eassyer way. :)
