I know I'm quoting myself... another feature of this Dropbox saving method is that you can share your backups.
Yes, we don't like spammers. And of course you can share your backups. I love Dropbox! Bad thing about a new Jailbreak is a lot of apps and tweaks won't work until updated for that iOS.


Okay. So it's a good idea to save it with iFile or DiskAid like I originally said. ;)That's how I've always done it as well.

As long as you have it saved on your computer and then via iFile, you're good to go.

This is why I don't use PkgBackup. I know it saves time, but I prefer not to use it because I like to have control over what gets installed. I always check each tweak/app for compatibility with the new firmware before installing it.

Exactly, that was my point.

Exactly. I don't even have a backup of my past Cydia. I will just manually install each tweak/app. Usually the "normal" ones that everybody uses is always compatible.

To be honest I actually do both. I keep the PkgBackup backup stored in Dropbox, so when I re-jailbreak I restore via PkgBackup. With all my tones I just batch SSH them onto my device(s). PkgBackup, IMO is a great convenience. Backing up solely through SSH is just the same, though :)

Oh for me I need some basic stuff here so here is my question.

I have the new iPad and it is running 5.1.1 so can I just jailbreak it tomorrow whenever the jailbreak is released? I don't have any whatevers saved with Cydia or anything like that just pretend I'm a new user jailbreaking for the first time.

What do I need to know or do so that I don't mess myself over on down the road? Are there things I need to register or stuff like that? I want to do this right from the get go...

Thanks

I believe you can register your device through Cydia as a user. Then from there your iPhone SHSH will be saved automatically in Cydia which will ultimately allow you to re-jailbreak or backup when necessary. Also TinyUmbrella is helpful when the time comes or you can still go back to a previous iOS version.

So just basically follow the instructions and that will get me registered. Thanks!
No problem. I don't recall any actual "registering your device" to save SHSH through Cydia.

If so, it's straight on the Cydia app when you first open it.
