Mainly directed for Cycorder, could one keep even after restoring and being "jailed" again? Is there any way to make that possible?

Theoretically you could ssh into the apps directory on the phone, copy the cycorder app over to your computer and then once jailbroken again transfer it back to the phone. I've never tested this though.

Is ssh hard to do? Do u think that might also work with winterboard and its themes?

Most people just download the app again after restoring and rejailbreaking. There's a program called aptbackup (I think) that supposedly keeps track of what jailbreak apps you've installed and automatically installs them again for you after rejailbreaking.

Good idea but...

Thanks for the heads up but i wikk not rejailbreak because of the lag. Ill just try ssh and restore and be on stock iPhone(no jailbreak)

oh... are you asking if you can keep Cycorder on a stock iPhone? Well the answer there is definitely no, sorry. :(

You have to be jailbroken to SSH at all.

You will lose OpenSSH when you restore, and you need it installed to access the phone via SSH. It's a big chicken and egg thing.

Long story short, there is no way to have a Cydia app on an iPhone without the phone being jailbroken.

technically you could do it. you would have to make the app look like an app store app and somehow digitally sign the app with Apples digital signature. this is possible but as far as i have heard it hasn't been done yet and would be very difficult to do
