    Has anyone had any issues with xBackup? I used it to backup everything before I upgraded to 6.1.2, restored my backup, rebooted and then I went straight to Activation mode and my phone wouldn't activate.

    I had PdaNet and was reading that causes it to show up, so I tried going into my phone to remove it but iTunes and TinyUmbrella didn't see my iPhone. It's not a big deal, I'm restoring right now. I was just wondering what I did wrong.

    I updated my iPhone 4 from 5.1.1 to 6.1.2 and after restoring Cydia tweaks with xBackup my iPhone was stuck on the Apple logo :(

    I restored again and am trying to remember ALL the tweaks to get it back the way I made it

    I use Appinfo to email myself a list of my tweaks before restoring

    Me too. I don't trust automated processes in this instance. I also don't like the idea of a bunch of tweaks all installing at the same time. I like to install everything one by one just to make sure they're installed properly and leaving nothing to chance. The only times I allow my phone to install multiple packages is when the main tweak I'm installing has required dependencies. Outside of this, I do everything one by one. My phone never has problems. The only time I ever have issues is when a package has a known bug and I'm effected by it. But this is almost always fixed by an update. So yea, AppInfo all the way for installing Cydia packages.

    I didn't know there was a tweak like that. I just type out all my sources which is only like 3-4 and all my tweaks which I narrowed down to like 5-8 now.
