If you have been a jailbreak fan like me then I can understand the kind of dilemma you must have been facing whenever Apple launched a new version of their iOS, because every time you upgrade your iOS to the latest version you will lose out on the jailbreak apps and settings of your iPhone. However, in this articles we are going to help you out with a small method or app which will help you to save cydia tweaks and save cydia settings while updating the iOS of your smartphone.
Hence, whenever the new version of Jailbreak is released in the market you can use the same backup to restore those apps back to your device. Let us take a look at its whole procedure.
The easiest way to backup Cydia Tweaks and Settings
Step 1 : Open the Cydia App on your iOS device and then tap on Manage Accounts.
Step 2 : Now, you will be asked to login into your account by using your existing Google or Facebook Account.
Step 3 : Once you login, you will see the option of Installable Purchases.
Now this section will include only the list of paid Cydia apps which were purchased by you and not the free ones.
Most of the times, users usually prefer to maintain the list of paid apps as the free ones can be installed at any time. However, we will still go ahead and tell you about another method of backing up these Settings for the free apps also. Just remember to backup cydia tweaks before upgrading iOS.
The Best Way to backup your Cydia Tweaks and Settings
OpenBackup is probably the best application available over Cydia, which can take the backup of all the apps available on your iOS device. Now search its name in cydia and install it like any other application.
Launch the application. Its interface is really simple. Just tap on Backup button.
Make sure that your iOS device is connected to internet. It will take sometime to back cydia settings on your device.
OpenBackup will push those backup files in the file system. So, these files will also be pushed in your iCloud storage or iTunes whenever you will backup your iTunes with them. Once you upgrade your iOS version, jailbreak your device again and then after installing this app, press Restore. All the apps will be restored back on your device.
