Aptbackup and Chronus. How to restore?
Hi all, I have both Aptbackup and Chronus on my phone since I jailbroke it about a week ago. I've backed up my JB'd apps on Aptbackup and my save states/data files via Chronus. My question is: Once 3.1 comes out and they create a jailbreak for it, how do I restore my jailbroken apps with their data when I reinstall Aptbackup and Chronus? I know that Aptbackup has a "restore" button, so that seems simple enough (I'm guessing it does this by recalling the iPhone serial # or something of the like?).
However, I do not see any kind of "restore" feature for Chronus. In the future when I re-Jailbreak, how do I restore my data from JB'd apps stored in Chronus?

I'm running on my Mac using Cyberduck. (iPhone Browser works well for the PC) You should be able to find Chronus backup files under /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/TimeCapsule/
There should be a folder for each of the backed up apps you made. just copy those out to your computer. Then when you re break, you'll just need to put those files back in the same place.

Instead of aptbaqckup, I recommend PkgBackUp. It worked very well for me from 3.0 to 3.0.1, it even remembered settings. Very glad I spent the 1.99.
For aptbackup....you will need to back up...sync (back up your iPhone), once you update and rejailbeak, restore your phone from back up, install aptbackup, and then restore your cydia packages.

At any rate, the combination of the two, chronus and pkgbackup, saved me a few hours of reinstalling and setting up apps.

I just did a restore recently and found something quite interesting. Chronus, when restoring from an iPhone backup, saves it's backups. So you shouldn't have to SSH and pull the info as it's already there. That was the case for me anyway. I pulled the backup files just in case before i did a re-jailbreak, and when going back to put them in the proper folder, they were all there already.

Maybe someone can help me with my PKGBackup problem. I backed up all of my stuff using this app and I had 74 apps backed up. I had a contact entry and all for this on Tuesday. Yesterday, I had to do a factory restore as my phone bricked up on me. I rejailbroke it and installed PKGBACKUP again. Unfortunately, when I went to restore my 74 packages/apps, there was nothing there to restore. It said there is 0 of 0 to restore.
When I did the factory restore I restored my iPhone to its state as of Tuesday night at 9:15, after the back up was done in pkgbackup.
My question is two-fold. Where did I go wrong? And is there still any chance I can retrieve those 74 apps?
