Part 2: How to Back up Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks

To back up jailbroken apps and tweaks, you will need a separate backup system. You cannot utilize iTunes for this purpose since it will not back up data on a jailbroken device.

The best backup tool for jailbroken devices is PkgBackup, which can be downloaded from Cydia. You will have to pay $9.99 for this tool, but it's well worth the cost as it is effective and very easy to use. Here's how to use it.

Steps to back up Jailbreak apps and Tweaks

Step 1: Purchase PkgBackup within Cydia and then install the tweak.

Step 2: It will appear on your home screen as an app icon. It is very important that you reboot your device before opening the app as many users have had issues when they tried to open the app immediately after installing it.

Step 3: Open the app. You may get a message that says, "Scanning of Packages and applications disabled." If you get this message, you need to head to the device's settings, go to PkgBackup, and then enable the Cydia packages for Backup.

Tap yes to continue and then enter a title and description for the backup so you can easily find it when you need to. The app will begin to back-up your tweaks, all you have to do is wait for the process to complete.

Part 3: How to Restore the Backup You Just Created

A lot of things can happen to make you lose your jailbreak tweaks. Having a backup like the one we just created in part 1 above will help you get everything back, all you have to do is restore the backup. Here's how to do this:

If a factory reset caused you to lose all your jailbreak tweaks, you may need to re-jailbreak your device. After jailbreaking the device open up Cydia and reinstall PkgBackup. Within the app, Tap "Restore".

The app will automatically load a default backup, which is usually the most recent one. Tap on the "Restore" button to complete the process. Reboot your device, and all your tweaks will appear.

A Backup for your Tweaks can be a real lifesaver, considering the number of things that can go wrong with a jailbroken device. With a credible backup, you can easily restore your device to its original status. This method is ideal if you have a lot of tweaks because then you can justify PkgBackup's $9.99 price tag. Although we are pretty sure anyone with a jailbroken device may want this app.
